Houston County Airport (ICAO: KCHUFAA LID: CHU) is a public use airport located three miles (5 km) south of the central business district of Caledonia, a city in Houston County, Minnesota, United States. It is owned by Houston County.[1] It serves general aviation for Caledonia and surrounding towns including Spring Grove and Houston. There is no scheduled air service.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Houston County Airport is assigned CHU by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA (which assigned CHU to Chuathbaluk Airport in Chuathbaluk, Alaska). [2] [3]
