We are ideally located in Southern Illinois between St. Louis, Missouri and Paducah, Kentucky. Our Airport offers on-site vehicle rentals, motel, and Fire Station providing 24-hour response. We have 8002 feet of runway and plenty of ramp/terminal parking with grounded tie-downs to complement a 22,000 sq-ft corporate hangar and Fixed Base Operator maintenance hangars. As a FAR Part 139 Certificated Airport, our Airport Operations Staff operates and maintains a full complement of airfield equipment to ensure clear and safe runways and taxiways. We happily invite you to be our guest and utilize the Airport and airspace for training or just to stop in and fill up with our full service FBO.
