Battle Creek Executive Airport
Battle Creek Executive Airport at Kellogg Field (previously known as W.K. Kellogg Airport) - airport code (BTL) serves as a catalyst for a vibrant aviation and aerospace sector. A robust OC-48 optical Ethernet fiber ring and two sub-rings place the airport and Battle Creek among the top local markets for broadband penetration in the United States, with any level of telecommunications bandwidth required.
Served by U.S. Customs and Border Protection at the Port of Battle Creek, the Battle Creek Executive Airport allows for dedicated clearances for aircraft and cargo arriving from foreign points of departure, in a non-congested setting. Battle Creek’s Foreign-Trade Zone, and access to both rail and aviation freight capabilities elevate logistics opportunities by reducing duty costs and delivery delays.
Hundreds of acres remain available for development at the airport owned and operated by the city of Battle Creek. A 10,003-foot runway, two additional operational runways and a state-of-the-art air traffic control tower complement two premier full-service fixed base operators meeting the needs of general aviation and business customers. A modern snow removal fleet, de-icing, wildlife hazard control program and airport rescue and fire fighting are all available.
The Battle Creek Executive 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 Attack Wing), Duncan Aviation, WACO Classic Aircraft and Centennial Aircraft Services.
The airport's tenant base is quite unique. When combined with its sister facility in Lincoln, Nebraska, Duncan Aviation is the largest privately-owned aircraft re-manufacturing plant in North America. The WMU College of Aviation is the 3rd largest flight school in the United States. Waco Aircraft Corporation is the only FAA certificated fixed-wing aircraft manufacturer in the State of Michigan.
Adjacent to Battle Creek’s 3,000 acre Fort Custer Industrial Park, the Battle Creek Executive Airport offers convenient access to Interstate 94, and nearby Interstate 69. For additional information regarding the Battle Creek Executive Airport contact Joe Sobieralski
