The Reading Regional Airport (RDG), also known as the General Carl A. Spaatz Field, is a general aviation airport and full-service transportation center located three miles northwest of Reading and serving a growing part of Southeastern Pennsylvania. Easy to reach from all directions. RDG is a refreshing place to start a trip...convenient, spacious, and friendly.
Our airport has a rich military history, originally serving as an Army Air Force training airfield, and is colloquially named after the first Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force. In addition to military activity, RDG also supports corporate and business activity, air charter, training, aerial inspection and pipeline patrol, and recreational flights. We provide a base of operation for Quest Diagnostic and their 24 based aircrafts, which are used for transporting medical specimen.
RDG is built upon the belief that community engagement and support is our most invaluable asset. Our airport provides facilities for the State Police, County Sheriff, congressional offices and is also home to the impressive Mid-Atlantic Air Museum. This Museum collects, restores, and displays historic military planes and classic airliners. Additionally, we host the WWII Weekend Air Show every June and annual 5K run for an anti-bullying program. Other hosted events include the Fly-In Car Show and Airplane Ride Day.
