Langlade County Airport

We believe you’ll find the Langlade County Airport to be an attractive, friendly facility, ready to make your visit a pleasant one or your relocation to our area, one you will not regret.  Fly in and see what we have to offer. Fuel and services are provided year round.   Normal summer hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., winter hours 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Presently, Langlade County Airport offers two asphalt runways—Runway 16-34 4000’ and Runway 8-26 3400’.  Lighting on Runway 16-34 is preset at low intensity from dusk until dawn, but from the cockpit, pilots can adjust 16-34 lighting from low to high intensity, as well as turn on 8-26 to low intensity.  All four approaches are enhanced by Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) lights to offer more precise, safer descents to landing.  With the flat farmland surrounding the airport, Langlade County offers some of the best approaches in the state.

The airport offers a Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) instrument landing approach and in 2001 a Global Positioning System (GPS) approach was implemented which offers a higher degree of accuracy in locating the airport.  The current minimums for instrument approaches on GPS are 400’ ceiling and 1 mile visibility.

In  2003 and 2004 Langlade County completed a project through local, state, and federal funding to reconstruct Runway 16-34 and also construct a new parallel taxiway A, which goes from the Apron to runway 8-26, with runway 16-34 taxiway connectors B and C.  This is part of a long term plan to lengthen runway 16-34 to 5000 feet with a full parallel taxiway.

Weather reporting at the airport is excellent.  An Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS) keeps pilots abreast of any changing conditions at the airport while they are enroute and constantly displays the current conditions on a computer in the lobby.  That information is incorporated into the Weather Mationsystem which provides live radar coverage throughout the contiguous United States, forecasts, pilot weather briefings, etc. and can also be used to file required flight plans with the FAA Flight Service Station.

Fuel is available–100LL Av Gas and Jet-A.   Tie downs are always available at no charge.  Many times overnight hangar space to accommodate a plane comparable to a Piper Navajo is available as well.

The terminal building, built in 1982, includes a pilot lounge area and a conference room available for meetings with ample space for 20–30 people if needed.

Currently, there are 23 aircraft based at the airport,  with five of those are home built, light sport or ultra-lights.  Hangars on the field consist of a 10 bay T-Hangar with bi-fold doors built in the mid-1970’s, an older 40’ x 50’ conventional hangar with bi-fold door currently housing 2 ultralight  aircraft, a privately owned 56’ x 64’ conventional hangar with 58’ bi-fold door built in 1999 used mainly by the crop spraying operation, and as a part of the terminal/operations building the 80’ x 80’ conventional shop hangar with 54’ 8” bi-fold door used for maintenance and aircraft storage.  There was a new 6-bay hangar built in 2008.  There are hanger spaces available to rent along with the possibility to build your own hanger at the Langlade County Airport.
