Valley Aircraft Services is on the beautiful Heyde Airfield, FAA ID: 8ND4. Heyde Airfield is a private, small grass airpark on the western edge of Manvel, ND, approximately 12 miles northwest of downtown Grand Forks. The southern part of the airfield is tucked in to scenic woods with a large pond and the winding, lazy Turtle River, creating stunning backdrops for photos of your bird! Jim Moreland and his family own this beautiful airpark, and Valley Aircraft Services' facility is on the southwest corner of the runway, 17/35.
Directions to the airport: Take I-29 to the Manvel exit, 152. Turn west onto county 33, proceed west through town and once leaving town turn left/south onto 17th St. NE / County 5. Make first left onto 10th St., and our facilities are in the second HOUSE's driveway on the left, or 1210 10th St., Manvel, ND, 58256. Proceed straight in to the white hangar directly in front of you when entering the driveway.
We welcome you to come and visit - just to say hi, or perhaps you'd like to find a weekend campsite? Jim, the owner of the airpark, welcomes fly-in campers for a nominal fee - just let us know if you're looking for that remote but close by destination for a fly out and we'll coordinate for your weekend getaway!
Heyde Airfield is a private airport - so if you want to come out, we advise you to call first to verify turf conditions, mowing status, etc. We are officially a three season airport - however, we make every attempt to keep the runway clear in winter if conditions permit. Again, be sure to call ahead 701-330-7615.
Cost: There is no official landing fee or facility fee, however it takes a lot to maintain the airpark! We do ask that if you are not coming in for maintenance services, please consider a $5 gift towards airpark maintenance. We will split all gifts with Jim towards the maintenance of Heyde Airfield.
