Original Sky Manor Surveys

Bill Blewitt defined the boundaries of Sky Manor Aero Estates in his 1960 survey, which sub-divided the original 193-acre parcel into the runway, taxiway, and lake lots. In 1978, the one-acre hangar lots were developed, and in 2008, all remaining property within Sky Manor was wrapped into the Registered Land Survey No.7. The 2014 survey further divided the three large tracts along the northern edge of the runway into five runway access lots.

Covenants and Property Rules

At the recent Sky Manor Aero Club meeting, a motion was approved requesting that a letter be sent to all property owners highlighting the covenants and property use rules. Covenants do apply to most of the property in Sky Manor, and Hubbard County’s Shoreland Ordinance applies to lots within 1,000 feet of the lake.

The larger lots (tracts) defined by “Amended Registered Land Survey No.7” are bound by the restrictive covenants recorded with Hubbard County by developer Roger Schmidt in January 2007. These covenants outline limitations, restrictions, and uses, and are attached to your deed.


Although there is no homeowners association for the RLS #7 lots, there is a common desire among Sky Manor property owners to promote our airpark community, and that includes protecting our property investments and improving values over the long term.  The covenants help facilitate that goal.

Generally speaking, no one wants to battle over property covenants. Most people are content with a -live and let live- philosophy, so long as everyone adheres to the spirit of the covenants and maintains his/her property in a way that does not devalue neighboring properties or interfere with others’ enjoyment of their properties.
