Newton City-County Airport (IATA: EWK, ICAO: KEWK, FAA LID: EWK) is three miles east of Newton, in Harvey County, Kansas. It is owned by the City of Newton and Harvey County.[1]

History[edit]

This establishment was created during World War 2 as a flight training facility for the U.S. Navy. After WW2 ended, it was changed into an airport. It is mostly used as a transport facility now. Also, the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a reliever airport for Wichita Mid-Continent Airport.[2]

Facilities[edit]

The airport covers 635 acres (257 ha) at an elevation of 1,533 feet (467 m). It has two asphalt runways: runway 17/35 is 7,003 by 100 feet (2,135 x 30 m) and 8/26 is 3,501 by 60 feet (1,067 x 18 m).[1]

The Hesston College aviation program operates out of Hangar K.

In the year ending June 10, 2008 the airport had 65,044 aircraft operations, average 178 per day: 99% general aviation, 1% air taxi, and <1% military. 99 aircraft were then based at the airport: 77% single-engine, 13% multi-engine, 7% jet, 2% helicopter and 1% ultralight.[1]
