Marlboro Airport, (9B1) in Marlborough, Massachusetts, is a public-use airport currently owned by Sandra A. Stetson.  It has one runway, averages 37 flights per day, and has approximately 40 aircraft based on its field.  It has intensive flight training activity with both airplane (Norby Aviation LLC) and helicopter (MetroWest Helicopters) flight schools operating from this conveniently accessible location.

Marlboro Airport was founded in 1922, the era when barnstormers flew “by the seat of their pants.” It is the oldest continuously operating commercial field in the state of Massachusetts. Currently it hosts one Fixed Base Operator, Don’s Flying Service, named for former airport manager Don LaCouture Sr. The field’s managers have included:

Don LaCouture Sr. (1946–1998)
G. Robert Stetson Jr. (1999–2012)
Bruce Prentiss (2012 – 2014)
Sandy Stetson (2014-Present)

Don’s Flying Service offers fuel (100LL), tie-downs and hangar space, and major and minor aircraft repairs.

Chapter 673 of the Experimental Aircraft Association is based at Marlboro Airport. Also known as The Marlboro Antiquers (since many of the founding members owned antique airplanes), the chapter has about 30 members.
