Located south of the Twin Cities, near Lakeville and Farmington, Minnesota, Airlake Airport has a single 4,098' x 75' runway and full length parallel taxiway. The airport offers a precision instrument approach to Runway 30 and a non-precision approach to Runway 12. Pilots use common traffic advisory procedures flying to and from the airport, which has no air traffic control tower.
Although used primarily by recreational pilots, Airlake Airport is located near one of Minnesota's largest industrial parks, making it ideally suited for related business aviation needs as well. A fixed base operator provides fueling and other aircraft maintenance services.
The airport annually experiences more than 33,000 landings and takeoffs. There are 133 aircraft based at the airport .
Future plans include new hangars in the southwest corner of the airfield, expanding the primary runway to 4,600 feet, and developing a 2,500-foot crosswind runway.
The long term comprehensive planning process for the Airlake Airport is almost complete. On Monday, Nov. 27, 2017, the MAC submitted its final draft report to the Metropolitan Council to ensure consistency with the Council's regional plans. Once the Metropolitan Council approves the plan, the MAC will finalize the report and begin the environmental assessment process.
