Stuttgart Municipal Airport (IATA: SGT, ICAO: KSGT, FAA Location identifier: SGT) is a public-use airport located in Prairie County, Arkansas, United States.[1] It is seven nautical miles (13 km) north of the central business district of Stuttgart, which owns the airport[1] and is the county seat of Arkansas County. According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, it is categorized as a general aviation facility.[2]

History[]

Stuttgart Municipal Airport dates to 1942 when it was built by the United States Army Air Forces. It was used as an advanced twin-engine flying school and glider training.[3] With the end of World War II, Stuttgart Army Airfield was declared excess and closed on 5 August 1946.[3] It was conveyed though the War Assets Administration (WAA) to the City of Stuttgart to establish a municipal airport.[3]

Facilities and aircraft[]

Stuttgart Municipal Airport covers an area of 2,560 acres (1,040 ha) at an elevation of 224 feet (68 m) above mean sea level. It has two runways: 9/27 is 5,002 by 150 feet (1,525 x 46 m) with a concrete surface; 18/36 is 6,015 by 100 feet (1,833 x 30 m) with an asphalt surface.[1]

For the 12-month period ending June 30, 2008, the airport had 40,200 aircraft operations, an average of 110 per day: 87% general aviation, 7.5% military, and 5.5% air taxi. At that time there were 34 aircraft based at this airport: 82% single-engine, 12% multi-engine, 3% jet and 3% helicopter.[1]

A 3-mile (4.8 km) SCCA road course was designed using the runways, with the first race in 1959. The last sports car race was held in 1978. A drag strip also existed from 1970 to 1972, operating as Stuttgart Dragway.[4]
