The City of Platte is privileged to have such an active airport.  The Platte Municipal Airport continues to strive forward with the needs and desires of pilots.  100 grade low-lead fuel was recently added. Please call (605) 337-3921 for current pricing.

Platte Municipal Airport is currently in the process of upgrading their lighting system to a medium intensity system with pilot controls and has begun the process to do an Apron and Taxilane Expansion which consists of a new general aviation apron, exit taxiway, hangar taxilane, access road and parking lot.  Once completed, this area will allow the construction of new hangars and future expansion of the airport. 

The long terms plans for the airport are to develop a GPS instrument approach.
