City Adopts Resolution Regarding Unleaded Fuel Implementation at the Airport

Proposed City Petition to WisDOT for Airport Improvement Aid
The purpose of this petition is to make the City eligible to received Federal and/or State funding assistance to install an unleaded fuel tank at the airport.  The project list in the resolution also includes items from the City's 2020 petition for which the City may still wish to obtain funding assistance.  The Plan Commission will hold a hearing on this matter on January 11, 2022, at 7:00 p.m.

On behalf of the Middleton Airport Commission and Common Council, I’d like to welcome you to the City of Middleton’s airport webpage. Middleton Municipal Airport-Morey Field is a modern, general aviation facility providing western Dane County and western Madison with a convenient alternative to the Dane County Regional Airport. Also known by the “C29” airport identifier, the 252-acre facility was purchased by the city in 1998 to maintain the airport as a vital part of the region’s transportation infrastructure, provide a buffer between the Airport Road Business Park and prime farmland, and enhance stormwater management in the vicinity of the North Fork of the Pheasant Branch Creek. The city contracts with Morey Airplane Company to operate the airport

As of 2019, the airport accommodates around 40,000 operations per year, and approximately 100 aircraft are based here. All hangar lots have been developed, but the City is exploring the potential for developing more hangar lots on the northeast end of the airport as part of an airport master planning process that began in 2018. If you're interested in building a hangar at C29, please contact the airport manager at 608.836.1711.

City officials expect the airport to embody the City's moniker as the "Good Neighbor City." To that end, the airport has established Noise Abatement Procedures with a Map and developed a Pilot Handbook to encourage pilots to reduce aircraft noise over certain residential areas. Complaints may be filed by calling (608) 836-6473 (same as (608) 83-NOISE) or using the online complaint form at right.

Thank you for your interest in Middleton’s own gateway to the skies!
