Frasca Field (FAA LID: C16) is a privately owned public use airport located at the northern edge of Urbana in Champaign County, Illinois, United States. It is owned by Frasca Air Service, which also serves as the fixed-base operator (FBO).[1] The airport serves the greater Champaign-Urbana Metropolitan Area in East Central Illinois.

Frasca Field is located on US Route 45, and is accessible via I-74 exit 184 heading North. It is on the opposite side of the city from Willard Airport, and is typically favored by private and corporate operators due to lower traffic volume.

History[edit]

Frasca Field was previously owned and operated as Illini Airport by Louis Dyson. In 1980, Illini Airport was acquired by Frasca Air Service, and the name was changed to Frasca Field.[citation needed]
