McMinnville Municipal Airport (ICAO: KMMV, FAA LID: MMV) is three miles southeast of McMinnville, in Yamhill County, Oregon.[1] The FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013 categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2] It is across Oregon Route 18 from the Evergreen Aviation & Space Museum, home to the Hughes H-4 Hercules or Spruce Goose.

Many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but this airport is MMV to the FAA and has no IATA code.[3]

West Coast DC-3s flew to McMinnville for a few years starting in 1947.

Facilities[edit]

The airport covers 650 acres (260 ha) at an elevation of 163 feet (50 m). It has two asphalt runways: 4/22 is 5,420 by 150 feet (1,652 x 46 m) and 17/35 is 4,340 by 75 feet (1,323 x 23 m).[1]

In the year ending January 16, 2009 the airport had 63,500 aircraft operations, average 173 per day: 98% general aviation and 2% military. 132 aircraft were then based at the airport: 66.7% single-engine, 8.3% multi-engine, 3.8% jet, 8.3% helicopter and 12.9% glider.[1]

2019 air show[edit]

In September 2019, the Oregon International Air Show, which is normally held at the Hillsboro Airport, is scheduled to be held instead at the McMinnville Airport, because of runway construction planned to take place between June and September at its usual venue in Hillsboro.[4]
