Scott Municipal Airport (ICAO: KSCX, FAA LID: SCX) is a public-use airport located four nautical miles (7 km) southwest of the central business district of Oneida, a city in Scott County, Tennessee, United States. The airport is owned by Scott County.[1] It is located adjacent to the Big South Fork Airpark, a gated community and residential airpark.[2]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned SCX by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned SCX to Salina Cruz, Oaxaca, Mexico[4]).
