Castle Well Airpark (0AZ5) Morristown, AZ. Steve and Jackie Andros, originally from Cave Creek, searched out an area years ago near Morristown to build a runway and settle down. They purchased this 55 acre parcel now divided into smaller parcels for home sites. The micro area where the airpark sits is unique in that it contains beautiful views with an abundance of saguaros, several hiking and riding trails nearby, is surrounded by public lands, and is nearby highways 60 and 74 for quick access to Phoenix by car.
The Castle Well Airpark is located just north of the Carefree Highway (74) and east of Castle Hot Springs Road in the foothills of the Bradshaw Mountains. Just as with other private airparks in Arizona, the Castle Well airstrip is for private use by residents; guests must have permission before landing. This airpark is home to 5 aircraft, and 5 homes on 10 home sites. All properties on the airpark share a well and the septic systems are individual.
The 2,400’ long by 60’ wide runway has 24’ of asphalt in the center with 20’ of gravel on the west side and 16’ of gravel on the east side. With the displaced thresholds, a pilot will have over 3,000’ to roll out and take off. Due to their special use permit issued by Maricopa County, RWY 17 has a 675’ displaced threshold for highway 74 easement and RWY 35 has a 563’ displaced threshold for noise abatement. All takeoffs are from RWY 17 downhill, and landings to RWY 35 going uphill. The runway is lighted with REILs which are on a timer from dusk to 1:00AM.
With the airpark’s unique surroundings and small community feel, this airpark is the closest thing to owning your own private runway.
