W.K. Kellogg AirportW.K. Kellogg Airport is located approximately three miles west of the City of Battle Creek and immediately south of the City of Springfield. For the 2011 calendar year, Kellogg Airport was the fifth busiest airport in Michigan. Additionally, on a national basis, in 2011 WK Kellogg Airport was ranked number 185 out of 512 towered airports. These rankings are conducted by the Federal Aviation Administration and are based on aircraft operations.
The airport is situated on a 1,600-acre site, zoned for industrial use and is owned and operated by the City of Battle Creek.
W.K. Kellogg Airport is the base of operations for approximately 55 private individuals as well as Western Michigan University College of Aviation, the Battle Creek Air National Guard (federally designated the 110th Tactical Air Support Group), Duncan Aviation, WACO Classic Aircraft and Centennial Aircraft Services.
The airport's tenant base is quite unique as you will see. When combined with its sister facility in Lincoln Nebraska, Duncan Aviation is the largest privately owned aircraft remanufacturing plant in North America. The WMU College of Aviation is the third largest flight school in the United States. Waco Classic Aircraft is the only FAA certificated fixed-wing aircraft manufacturer in the State of Michigan.
As a transport airport with a 10,003 foot primary runway, this facility can accommodate all types and sizes of aircraft including a fully loaded Boeing 747. Several Presidential aircraft have utilized Kellogg Airport's facilities in previous years.
We plan to place more material on the website concerning many aspects of the airport. If there is something you would like to see please send an email to Lawrence C. Bowron, Transportation Director.
