Fostoria Metropolitan Airport (ICAO: KFZIFAA LID: FZI) is a city-owned public airport two miles northeast of Fostoria, Ohio.[1] The FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009-2013 classified it as a general aviation airport.[2]

Most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but this airport is FZI to the FAA and has no IATA code.

Facilities[edit]

The airport covers 201 acres (81 ha) at an elevation of 752 feet (229 m) above sea level. Its one runway, 9/27, is 5,000 by 100 feet (1,524 x 30 m) asphalt.[1]

In the year ending May 19, 2008 the airport had 7,900 aircraft operations, average 21 per day: 95% general aviation and 5% air taxi. 14 aircraft were then based at this airport: 93% single-engine and 7% jet.[1]


Awards[edit]

Recently the Fixed Based Operator (FBO) David Sniffen III was recognized by the Ohio Aviation Association as the 2010 Airport Manager of the year for the state of Ohio.
