about the airpark

A Relaxed, Aviation Oriented Community

Tailwind Airpark began development in 1997 as an aviation oriented community where folks could live peacefully and enjoy aviation with fellow neighbors without the hassles of busy metropolitan life and congested airspace. Tailwind Airpark is located 60 miles east of Dallas, TX, 2 miles North of I-20 near Canton, TX, a quiet East Texas town of 3,581. So if you like country living and aviators for neighbors Tailwind could be the place for you.

Of all the airports that I have been associated with, either as a land owner or visitor, I believe that Tailwinds has the most conscientious management. It's nice to be at an airport where the owners take pride in their business and also create a friendly atmosphere to everyone there. I really appreciate that.

Peaceful, well maintained, and spacious this Airpark makes the ideal home. Within driving distance of Dallas or Tyler, Texas or by air to anywhere (limited only by the amount of gas you can carry). There is a golf course nearby, if you are so inclined, or just enjoy the experience of having great neighbors.

Tailwind Airpark is a great place to hold a balloon event and easy access to balloonist from all directions. The airport is a 360 degree flying area which is perfect for launching and flying for a long distance without problems. The North Texas Ballooning Assoc. would love to have a balloon event there sometime in the early fall.

My wife Sonja and I long dreamed of living in a fly-in community and we searched airparks as possible retirement homes. We both feel very lucky to have found and settled in Tailwind Airpark. Here we have good neighbors and great friends. It is a joy to live in a community of folks with a common love of flying (...)

From my perspective, Tailwind Airpark is real neighborhood, in every sense of the word. The residents are helpful, very friendly and you get a real sense of “Family” from them. I’ve had a lot of fun and good memories from the various events and get-togethers they have held throughout the years (..)
