Cheboygan County Airport (ICAO: KSLHFAA LID: SLH) is a public use airport located two nautical miles (3.7 km) west of the central business district of Cheboygan, a city in Cheboygan County, Michigan, United States. It is owned by the Cheboygan Airport Authority.[1] According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, it is classified as a general aviation airport.[2] The airport is accessible from Levering Road and is close to US Highway 23.

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned SLH by the FAA and no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned SLH to Sola Airport on Vanua Lava, one of the Banks Islands, in Torba Province, Vanuatu[4]).
