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.


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]
