North Little Rock Municipal Airport (ICAO: KORK, FAA LID: ORK, formerly 1M1) is a public use airport in Pulaski County, Arkansas, United States.[1] It is owned by the City of North Little Rock and located four nautical miles (5 mi, 7 km) north of its central business district.[1]

This airport is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015, which categorized it as a general aviation reliever airport[2] for Little Rock National Airport.[3]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned ORK by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[4] (which assigned ORK to Cork Airport in Cork, Ireland).[5]
