Monroe County Airport is a public airport located four miles (6 km) southwest of the central business district of Bloomington, a city in Monroe County, Indiana, United States. This airport is publicly owned by Monroe County.
As constructed, the original runway was 5,200 feet (1,585 meters) but was later lengthened to 6,500 feet (1,981 meters) permitting the operation of Boeing 727 aircraft. In 1995, the aircraft parking ramp was completely replaced allowing for the handling of larger planes. 13 hangars were added at this time as well.
Approximately 100 private planes are based from this airport. Scheduled service has been available at different points in the airport's history but as of 2007, no scheduled service is available.
The airport averages 140 takeoffs and landings per day. FBO services and car rentals are available. There are two FBOs at the airport: Cook Aviation (owned by Cook Group) and BMG Aviation.
