Renovated, Renamed Airport In Dover, VT Set To Resume Private Flights

Ribbon Cutting Held Last Saturday

A private airport in the southern Vermont town of Dover is being revamped – and renamed – to attract more visitation to the Deerfield Valley area. The former Mount Snow Airport, renamed the Deerfield Valley Airport (DVA), will be improved to attract single and twin-engine general aviation aircraft. An official opening for the public was held Saturday with a variety of aircraft on display. 

While the new facility (4V8) will target private aircraft, the public may charter flights as needed, according to owner Jim Barnes, founder and president of the Hermitage Club at Haystack Mountain, who purchased the airport in June. The runway and taxiway have been completely resurfaced, and renovations, including a new outside patio, will be made to the terminal building and five existing hangars. Future plans call for extending the existing 2,650-ft. runway to accommodate small jets. 

DVA lies at an elevation of 1,950 feet and is about one mile southwest from West Dover. The airport, bordered by the 18-hole Mount Snow Golf Course, is located on a connector trail to a snowmobile trail system.

"The whole region wins with this renovation of the over 40-year-old  airport," said Barnes. "DVA will become its own economic engine bringing customers to fly in for skiing, shopping, golf, and restaurants. It will attract second-home purchases as well, improving the value of existing property."

He added that local fire and rescue operations will now have a maintained, safe landing zone for medevac helicopters.

Special events, such as air shows, fly-ins, and festivals, are also a possibility once the renovation is complete.
