Visiting Marshfield Airport - Harlow Field (GHG)
Marshfield Airport-Harlow Field (GHG) is located just outside Boston's Class B airspace to the southeast. The newly paved runway 06/24 replaces the original 3,000-by-75 foot stretch with a 3,900-by-100 foot runway which includes 300’ safety buffers at each end. Using the new declared distances, the runway provides 3,600 feet for takeoff and 3,300 feet for landing. GPS and NDB approaches are available now, with LPV approaches available in September, 2014!
Aircraft operating into and out of GHG range from piston powered single engine aircraft to helicopters, multi-engine turboprops and light jets. VFR fixed-wing traffic should use the standard left-hand traffic pattern. VFR rotor-wing traffic should use right traffic. Advisories are available on Unicom 122.8. Runway, taxiway and PAPI lights are activated with 7 clicks on 122.8.
There is ample parking for transient aircraft and overnight hangar space may be available with prior notice. Many of our tiedowns are equipped with electrical outlets to plug in engine heaters and pre-heats are also available.
For noise abatement, all aircraft should perform engine run-ups at the mid-field ramp. On departure, when practical, all aircraft should climb straight out to 700 feet prior to making any turns. Touch and go landings are prohibited from 2100-0730 local time.
We work very hard to ensure that we are a good neighbor to the residents of Marshfield and appreciate your cooperation with noise abatement procedures!
