The Westover Metropolitan Airport is a 91-acre public use, regional airport. It operates jointly with the Westover Air Reserve Base, is open to all categories of civilian aviation and is home to the Air Force Reserve 439th Military Air Wing.
The airport, as well as four adjacent industrial parks (Airpark West, Airpark East, Airpark North, and Airpark South) are owned and managed by the Westover Metropolitan Development Corporation under a "joint use" agreement with the Department of Defense.
Westover Metropolitan Development Corporation is a quasi-public development corporation created in 1974 to undertake industrial and aviation development of property surplused by the General Services Administration at the former Westover Air Force Base.
Today, the organization manages day-to-day airport operations, the maintenance of each industrial park as well as the development of each park's fully-permitted, commercial and industrial real estate.
Westover Metropolitan Development Corporation is led by a nine-member Board of Directors from the surrounding business communities and officially became an affiliate partner of the Economic Development Council of Western Massachusetts in 1996.
