Farmington, MO Regional Airport Shows Off Updated Layout

By Fred Harl
The Farmington, MO Regional Airport has undergone significant upgrades in recent years, and this seemed like a good time to take another look at this gem of the Midwest.  Owned by the City of Farmington, it sports a 4222 x 75 ft. concrete Runway 2/20 that may be extended to 5000 feet in the future. 

Improvements included a new terminal building, additional ramp space, new taxiway with additional turnoffs, and a self-service fueling area.  Also of note is the nearby Air Evac Life Team base, established in 1998, serving southeast Missouri communities.  Make Farmington, MO one of your next destinations as you convert money to fuel, and also drop by these airports while you are in the area: A. Paul Vance Fredericktown Regional Airport (11 nm SE), Washington County Airport (18 nm NW), Festus Memorial Airport (26 nm N), Perryville Municipal Airport (28 nm E), and Sparta Community Airport-Hunter Field (42 nm NE). 

Here are some of my recent aerial photos of Farmington Regional Airport:
