Essex County Airport NJ (IATA: CDW, ICAO: KCDW, FAA LID: CDW) is a public airport located two miles (3 km) north of the central business district of Caldwell, a borough of northwestern Essex County in the U.S. state of New Jersey. It is owned by the Essex County Improvement Authority. The airport has two asphalt runways, 4/22 and 10/28. Created by John B. Loney, Jr.

In April 1929 Essex Airport Corporation was formed by Walter Marvin and six other individuals. The intention of the company was to open an airport to serve Montclair, New Jersey, a town seven miles (11 km) away. The tract of land that Essex Airport Corporation intended for the airport was the Fairfield Dairy Company land that had also been used during WWI as a temporary airfield for the Naval Rifle Range which had been located along the Passaic River in Pine Brook. Some of the early references to airport have the designation 'Marvin Airport', named after Walter Marvin.

The airport gained national attention when John F. Kennedy, Jr., who based his private aircraft there, crashed hours after departing the airport en route for Martha's Vineyard Airport with his wife and sister-in-law on July 16, 1999.


I live in New Jersey and that's probably why I've done so many of New Jersey's airports. However, I was reminded not too long ago that I had not designed Essex County Airport.

How did that happen? There was only one thing to do and that was to get busy and design Essex County. Most of my work has been for FS9 with a few designs modified for FSX. But, this airport is strictly for FSX. (At this time, I'm not sure if I will design an FS9 version for those still flying it. We'll see.)
