The Portland Flying Service was located at the Port of Maine Airport, which was a privately owned air field on Pleasant Hill Road near Route 1, the site of the former Sagadahoc Dairy Farm. Small planes could be stored, repaired and chartered at this field. This venture was started after World War Two by Harold Troxwell and operated until the 1960s.
