About the Neil Armstrong Airport

The Auglaize County Neil Armstrong Airport is an authority operated general aviation facility with a rich aviation history. Named for Neil Armstrong, our native son and first person to walk on the moon, the airport handles recreational, corporate, and private travelers. The Neil Armstrong Airport was founded in 1968, beginning with a grass runway and has been expanding ever since.

Through continued growth and investment, the airport now has a 5,501-foot long by 100-foot wide grooved asphalt runway capable of handling aircraft weighing in excess of 50,000 pounds. This runway, coupled with its advanced instrument approaches, provides access to Auglaize County in all weather conditions. It is capable of accommodating any size corporate and general aviation aircraft manufactured to-date. Numerous individuals, corporate, and industrial companies, store and maintain their aircraft in the airports roughly 92,000 square feet of hangar space. The airport also has future development opportunities available for those interested in building their own aircraft hangar.

To meet the ever-growing demand and requirements for air travel, the airport has developed plans for a new terminal facility. This facility will provide travelers with an updated portal into Auglaize County. The new terminal will address the future needs of private and business flyers alike.
