Madisonville’s airport was one of only three Kentucky airports recognized during the session.

Madisonville’s Mayor Will Cox, Airport Board Chairman Dr. Joe Roe, and other members of the Madisonville Municipal Airport Board attended the session, during which Mayor Cox gave a brief presentation about the history, growth, and current capabilities and services at the Airport.

“It was an honor for our airport to be recognized at the Conference, as we always appreciate the opportunity to promote one of the best airports in the Commonwealth,” Mayor Cox stated. “From the Airport’s use by our industrial and business community, to its use during times of crisis such as the Ice Storm of 2009, the Madisonville Municipal Airport is an integral component of our community’s economic development efforts.”

Cox’s overall message to the Kentucky Aviation Association members, was that the Madisonville Municipal Airport is, as he stated, “Open for business!”

The Airport is equipped with a Certified Automated Weather Observing System to ensure safety for every traveler, and also provides pilots with clearance delivery on the ground, runway end identification lights, and a precision approach path indicator. The Airport is home to a 6050’X100’ runway with a load-bearing capacity of over 130,000 pounds per axle – enough to support a full-loaded military C-130! Other services of the airport include T-hangar rental, community hangar rental, after-hours card reader fuel service, and 100LL Aviation and Jet-A fuel. Madisonville Municipal Airport also is a large supporter of the Wendell Ford Training Center which has been hailed as the premier mechanized infantry and armor maneuver training area in the region.
