We get this question a lot! #DidYouKnow #FlyOAJ

Albert J. Ellis was a prominent Jacksonville attorney, businessman and State Senator who championed the effort to build an airport and bring commercial airline service to Onslow County. In late 1958, 13 years before the airport opened, he worked with City, County, State, Federal and Piedmont Airlines officials to help initiate an effort that would eventually result in the planning, design, and construction of the Albert J. Ellis Airport.

As the City and County Attorney, Albert J. Ellis made numerous trips to Washington, DC to urge the Civil Aeronautics Board, now known as the FAA, to approve the project. He also provided legal expertise and worked tirelessly to help secure matching funds for an FAA grant. In 1966 he was elected to the North Carolina Senate and continued to advocate for the construction of the Airport. In 1968 voters passed a bond referendum by a margin of 2 to 1 to fund the construction of the Airport.

Construction began in 1969, a few months prior to the death of Albert J. Ellis. While he wasnโ€™t fortunate enough to see the culmination of his tireless efforts, he was honored with the naming of the Airport as a tribute. The Albert J. Ellis Airport (OAJ) officially opened on February 14, 1971, Valentine's Day.

I see that posting they don't like are "deleted". How convenient.
A plane lands with family members onboard. You pull up to the curb and here comes the cop! ...is it all about trying to make people 'pay to park'? What is AJE Airport afraid of? I mean, AJE is not an international hub like LA, Dullas, JFK, O'hare. But sure enough..., pull up to the curb and here comes the cop.
Good Morning, We would like to invite you in celebrating Sgt. Kate McHugh is receiving her wings and becoming the FIRST law enforcement SABLE Helicopter Pilot. We are trying to recognize her as much as we can. Because it is a huge accomplishment. If you could share her story we would really be grateful! Thanks so much!

Any decisions on keeping the airport open or closed during Hurricane Dorian? My Mom has a flight out on Wednesday morning
Has the fuel delivery issue been resolved?
Don't delay planes for rediculous criteria.
Who is Albert J. Ellis, I looked it up on line but not sure if he was the Psychiatrist. What is the story on getting his name on the Airport. Just wondering, I'm flying back and always wonder who is this guy. Thanks in advance.
Electricity is out!
Was there any damage to vehicles in the parking lot due to the hurricane? I flew out before it came through.
