Ghost Airports - Martin Field. Located about five miles northeast of the heart of Canton, along Route 62, Martin Field served the Canton, OH area from the late 1930's to the late 1990's. For a while, it was home to the Akron Skydivers. Here it serves as Ghost Airports Collection first Ohio airport. By Richard O. Finley.
Martin Field was opened in the late 1930's and closed around 1997. It served Canton, OH area. The original owner/operator was Roy Poorman. More information can be found at the web site “Abandoned & Little Known Airfields”.
For a while Martin Field was the home of the Akron Skydivers. You will notice the pea gravel pit out on the field for the skydivers to land on. In this delivery there is a not so great picture of the Akron Skydivers in their jump plane departing Salem Airpark in 1970. This simulation is dedicated to the memory of Buzz Draskovitch who died shortly after open-heart surgery. We told him it was too soon to go back to jumping.
