Orange City Municipal Airport (ICAO: KORCFAA LID: ORC) is a city owned public use airport located one nautical mile (1.85 km) south of the central business district of Orange City, a city in Sioux County, Iowa, United States.[1] This airport is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, which categorized it as a general aviation facility.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned ORC by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned ORC to Orocue Airport in Orocue, Colombia[4]).
