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.
Airlake has a total annual economic output of $13.2 million and supports 104 jobs, including 31 directly tied to on-airport businesses.
There are 142 aircraft based at Airlake Airport and in 2018, there were 32,986 landings and takeoffs.
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.
