Nampa Municipal Airport (ICAO: KMANFAA LID: MAN, formerly S67) is a city-owned public airport in Nampa, in Canyon County, Idaho.[2] The FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013 called it a general aviation airport.[3]

It is used for private, emergency, military and industrial aviation and is home to the Warhawk Air Museum. The airport is under construction.[citation needed] The National Guard Base is on airport grounds. Nampa Municipal Airport is a member of Rocky Mountain Air and the Snake River Flight Training Club. Mission Aviation Fellowship is also headquartered at the Nampa Airport.

Most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but this airport is assigned MAN by the FAA and has no designation from the IATA[4] (which assigned MAN to Manchester Airport in Manchester, England, United Kingdom[5]).
