Drummond Island Airport (IATA: DREICAO: KDRMFAA LID: DRM, formerly Y66) is a public airport located one mile (2 km) southwest of the central business district of Drummond Island, in Chippewa County, Michigan, United States. It is owned by Drummond Township.[1] It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2017–2021, in which it is categorized as a basic general aviation facility.[2]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Drummond Island Airport is assigned DRM by the FAA and DRE by the IATA[3] (which assigned DRM to Drama, Greece[4]).
