Yazoo County Airport (FAA LID: 87I) is five miles northwest of Yazoo City in unincorporated Yazoo County, Mississippi.[1] It is owned by the County of Yazoo.[1][2]

The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 called it a general aviation facility.[3] In 2010 the airport got a $76,931 Federal Aviation Administration Airport Improvement Program grant for apron lighting.[2]

The airport has a 5,000 feet (1,500 m) lighted runway that was built in 1993 and upgraded in 2000. As of 2001 the airport houses two agricultural businesses and a repair service. Lynne W. Jeter of the Mississippi Business Journal said in 2001 that the county airport "may have played an important role in landing the multi-phase federal prison project that is currently under expansion," referring to the Federal Bureau of Prisons Federal Correctional Complex, Yazoo City.

Facilities[edit]

Yazoo County Airport covers 300 acres (121 ha) at an elevation of 105 feet (32 m). Its one runway, 17/35, is 5,001 by 100 feet (1,524 x 30 m) asphalt.[1]

In the year ending March 6, 2012 the airport had 12,800 aircraft operations, average 35 per day: 99% general aviation and 1% military. Ten single-engine aircraft were then based at the airport.[1]
