Coffeyville Municipal Airport (IATA: CFV, ICAO: KCFV, FAA LID: CFV) is a city-owned public-use airport four miles northeast of Coffeyville, in Montgomery County, Kansas, United States.[1]


The airport covers 1,227 acres (497 ha) and has two asphalt runways: 17/35 is 5,872 x 100 ft (1,790 x 30 m) and 4/22 is 4,000 x 75 ft (1,219 x 23 m).[1]

For the 12-month period ending September 19, 2005 the airport had 5,550 aircraft operations, average 15 per day: 99% general aviation and 1% military. 40 aircraft were then based at the airport: 85% single-engine, 10% multi-engine and 5% ultralight.[1]


For the World War II use of the airport, see Coffeyville Army Airfield

During World War II the facility was Coffeyville Army Airfield. It was a United States Army Air Forces AAF Flying Training Command training field from 1942 to 1945.[2]

Aircraft used were Vultee BT-13A Valiants and BT-15s. The airfield performed Basic Pilot School instruction, the second phase of the three-phase training program for pilots. The facility was closed and turned over to civil authorities in 1947.

From 1951 to 1954 Ozark Airlines DC-3s between Tulsa and Kansas City stopped at Coffeyville; the airport was then called McGugin Field. National Air Transport's timetable showed a stop at Coffeyville in the 1930s, but that was an earlier airport.

In the 1950s Continental Can Company leased the hangars at the airport and was a subcontractor for Boeing Corporation, building bomb bay doors for B-52 Stratofortresses. This ended in 1958 with the completion of the B-52 contract. Coffeyville had been an industrious small city; this plant closing along with the closing of other industries was a severe blow to Coffeyville's financial health.

In its heyday Coffeyville had a dairy, Page Milk Company; an oilfield drilling rig company, Parkersburg; two railroad yards and maintenance operations, ATSF & Katy; a brick company and terra cotta roofing tile company, Ludawece Celadon; a cast iron casting company; and a large oil refinery, Co-Op. On the northwest outskirts was a large smelter. Except for the oil refinery, which has a small operation today, all industries are gone.
