The Hillsdale Municipal Airport is a State of Michigan licensed "Public Use-General Utility Airport". The runway was recently reconstructed and expanded to 5000 feet by 100 feet. The crowned and grooved construction offers superior drainage for excellent braking/steering characteristics and the weight bearing capacity rating has been increased up to the "Gulfstream" category of business aircraft. Future development includes a new terminal building/parking area, hangars, fuel farm and full length taxiway.
The airport is accessed via two instrument approaches (VOR, GPS) with an additional two WAAS based GPS approaches in development and scheduled for publication by late 2012/early 2013. These approaches will significantly improve access and safety during inclement weather conditions. Weather conditions at the airport are continuously monitored and broadcast by AWOS-3 automated weather observation station. Flight crews have access to weather data via the WSI Weather Brief station in the Terminal/FBO building.
Full-time staffing at the airport ensures timely and continuous daytime runway monitoring and clearing during the winter season. On-call runway clearing services are available for night/early morning departure and arrivals via the Fixed Based Operator (FBO).
