Igor I. Sikorsky Memorial Airport is a public airport in Fairfield County, Connecticut, owned by the city of Bridgeport. It is 6 km southeast of downtown, in the town of Stratford. The airport was originally Avon Field, a racetrack where aircraft landed on the grass infield. It was the site of the country's first air show held in 1911, on the grounds of what is now St. Michaels Cemetery. In 1972 it was rededicated as the Igor I. Sikorsky Memorial Airport, honoring the airport's most famous tenant, Igor Sikorsky, who selected Stratford as the site for his Sikorsky Aviation Corporation in 1929.
