Long-term Comprehensive Plan
The MAC – working together with communities, aircraft operators and the Federal Aviation Administration – has developed several strategies for helping reduce aircraft noise in neighborhoods around each of our seven airports, including Anoka County-Blaine (ANE). You can review ANE’s Noise Abatement Plan and ANE's Pilot Guide that outline several strategies pilots should use to minimize airplane noise.
There are two runways at Anoka County-Blaine Airport (ANE): Runway 9/27 is 5,000' x 100', and Runway 18/36 is 4,855' x 100.' A precision approach is available on Runway 27. The 1,800-acre airport has multiple fixed-base operators and a non-federal aircraft control tower that is operational from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. in the winter and 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. in the summer.
