Oakland/Troy Airport (ICAO: KVLLFAA LID: VLL) is a county-owned public-use airport located two miles (3 km) east of the central business district of Troy, a city in Oakland County, Michigan, United States.[1]

The Oakland/Troy Airport is considered the county's 'executive' airport. Business travelers and tourists using private, corporate and charter aircraft benefit from the airport's convenient proximity to business, recreation and entertainment facilities.[2] It is located between Maple Road and 14 Mile Road and Coolidge Highway and Crooks Road.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Oakland/Troy Airport is assigned VLL by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned VLL to Valladolid, Spain[4]).
