Long-Term Comprehensive Plan
Flying Cloud has played an important role in the Twin Cities since the airport opened in 1943. Located approximately 14 miles from downtown Minneapolis, the airport is considered by the MAC to be a primary reliever airport for the Minneapolis – St. Paul International Airport (MSP). Due to its location in the southwest suburbs, businesses consider it an important part of their local operations.
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 Flying Cloud.
Flying Cloud has an FAA-operated control tower and an instrument landing system. The tower operates daily in the winter from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m., staying open an extra hour, till 10 p.m., in summer. Full-service operators offer corporate aircraft services, recreational flight training, and aircraft charter, rental, sales, maintenance and Life Source flights.
Real Estate Development
There are many parcels of land around the MAC's seven airports for development for a variety of business types including hospitality, restaurants, retail, professional services, light industrial and manufacturing.
