Westchester County Airport (KHPN) is one of the most convenient airports in the New York
Metro area to learn to fly. The main benefits of this airport is that it's a very easy
commute for students in New York City, upper Manhattan and Westchester County areas such as
Rye, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Irvington and Greenburgh. HPN offers an alternative to a ride
out to Long Island for many NYC residents.
