Princeton Municipal Airport (ICAO: KPNM, FAA LID: PNM) is a city owned public use airport located one nautical mile (1.85 km) southwest of the central business district of Princeton, a city in Mille Lacs County, Minnesota, United States.[2] This airport is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems 2015-2019, which categorizes it as a general aviation airport.[3]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned PNM by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.[4]


The Federal Aviation Administration relocated the flight service station (FSS) for Minnesota to Princeton in 1987. The airport was completely renovated in 1988.[5]
