TxAeroSport (X65) is located in the quiet open country five miles west of Howe, TX, yet with easy access to Sherman/Denison and the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex via US-75 or State Highway 289. By car, Dorchester is about 1 hour north of Dallas, 30 minutes north of McKinney and about 15 minutes southwest of Sherman. If you’re looking for a peaceful country location in which to live and play, yet within a short driving distance to medium and large metropolitan areas, Dorchester (population of about 100 people) may be your kind of place.
The City of Sherman has a wonderful website that will provide you with lots of valuable information about the history, attractions, recreation and resources available in this area.
It’s only a short hop for breakfast, lunch and dinner outings to Cedar Mills (on the shore of Lake Texoma), only 7nm northeast to Sherman Municipal Airport (KSWI) for the most inexpensive avgas in the area and 11nm north to North Texas Regional Airport (KGYI, formerly Grayson County Airport) which offers a Class D Towered airport with instrument approaches into a 9000’ X 150’ runway.
Driving to TxAerosport is easy. We’re located just north of FM 902, which is an east-west road which intersects the north-south arteries of US-75 at Howe and State Highway 289 (Preston Road) at Dorchester. From US-75, take FM 902 going west for about 5 miles to Dorchester. From 289, take FM 902 going east in Dorchester for about 2 miles. Upon reaching Belden Road, make a turn to the north and the airport will be on your left less than a mile up the road.
