The Prosser Airport looking west. Formerly Beardsley Field, it was built in 1935 for the City of Prosser. In 1961, the City transferred ownership and management to the Port of Benton. It features a single runway 3,450 feet in length, with retro-reflective taxiway markers, a taxiway crossover as a safety enhancement, and a newly constructed north tie down area for visiting pilots. Commercial activity northeast of the airport along Wine Country Road includes the Barn Motor Inn and Best Western Prosser Inn.
