Crandon Municipal Airport, also known as Steve Conway Municipal Airport, (FAA LID: Y55) is a city owned public use airport located 3 miles (5 km) southwest of the central business district of Crandon, a city in Forest County, Wisconsin, United States.[1] It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2021–2025, in which it is categorized as a basic general aviation facility.[2]

Although most airports in the United States use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and International Air Transport Association (IATA), this airport is assigned Y55 by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.

Facilities and aircraft[edit]

Crandon Municipal Airport covers an area of 259 acres (105 ha) at an elevation of 1650 feet (503 m) above mean sea level. It has two runways: 12/30 is 3,550 by 75 feet (1,082 x 23 m) with an asphalt surface and 1/19 is 2,742 by 100 feet (836 x 30 m) with a turf surface.[1]

For the 12-month period ending August 20, 2020, the airport had 4,400 aircraft operations, an average of 12 per day: 91% general aviation and 9% air taxi.

In September 2021, there were 9 aircraft based at this airport: all 9 single-engine.[1]

2016 improvement project[edit]

Between January and June 2016 the airport completed a $70,000 improvement project that was approved by Governor Scott Walker. The first part of the project was the construction of a six bay T-hangar. The airport then shut down for a few days in June to complete crack filling work on all pavements.[3]
