Wahoo Municipal Airport (ICAO: KAHQ, FAA LID: AHQ) is two miles northeast of Wahoo, in Saunders County, Nebraska. It is owned by the Wahoo Airport Authority.[1] The FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013 classified it as a general aviation airport.

Many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, but this airport is AHQ to the FAA and has no IATA code.[2]

The airport covers 126 acres (51 ha) at an elevation of 1,224 feet (373 m). It has two runways: 2/20 is 4,100 by 75 feet (1,250 x 23 m) concrete and 13/31 is 3,290 by 150 feet (1,003 x 46 m) turf.[1]

In the year ending August 13, 2008 the airport had 16,350 aircraft operations, average 44 per day: 99% general aviation and 1% military. 32 aircraft were then based at the airport: 84% single-engine, 6% multi-engine and 9% ultralight.[1]
