Bedford County is home to a general aviation airport, featuring a 5,005 foot runway. Bedford County Airport (KHMZ) is able to handle most private planes and jets. The airport recently expanded, adding another hangar to meet the rising demand for their full line of FBO services. Bun-Air operates several jets, as well as smaller prop aircraft out of the facility, providing on-demand charter service.
