Middleton Municipal Airport (FAA LID: C29), also known as Morey Field, is a general aviation airport located five miles (8 km) northwest of Middleton,[3] a city in Dane County, Wisconsin, United States. 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 regional general aviation facility.[4]

History[edit]

Morey Field was named after founder Howard Morey who started the Middleton airport in 1942.[5] After that management of the airport changed hands to Field Morey,[6] the son of Howard and then to Richard Morey, the son of Field. The airport was sold to the city of Middleton in 1998 and changed its name from Morey Field to Middleton Municipal Airport - Morey Field. Although the airport was sold to the city, Richard Morey still manages the FBO which provides services to airport users.

In July 2005 the city of Middleton completed a $7 million renovation of the airport including land acquisition and construction. The renovation consisted of a new terminal building and a new 4,000-foot (1,200 m) long by 100-foot (30 m) wide asphalt runway (10/28), as well as a 2,000-foot (610 m) long by 120-foot (37 m) wide crosswind turf runway (1/19).[7]
Morey Airplane Co.[8] is the airport's fixed-base operator (FBO).
