Fillmore County Airport – “In Bluff Country!”

Fillmore County Airport

Located in Southeastern Minnesota’s “bluff country region,” Fillmore County has been able to utilize its many natural and cultural assets to attract visitors and provide a high quality of life for residents. Fillmore County has paid careful attention to maintaining its agricultural heritage, but has also developed strong tourism, manufacturing, and service industries that provide quality employment for residents of the communities within the county.

Tourism as an industry in Fillmore County has flourished around several different natural and cultural resources. Trout fishing, canoeing and tubing in the Root River and its many tributaries is a great draw to the county. The National Trout Learning Center is located in downtown Preston as well. Sixty miles of bike trails throughout the county attract several thousand more visitors each year. The karst topography includes caves in the area; Niagara and Mystery Caves are among the most popular.

Fillmore County Airport includes a 4,000-foot paved runway. Deters Aviation is the full-service fixed base operator, and Slip Skid Aviation is a NAAA certified aircraft appraisal company, and an aircraft dealer.

Fillmore County Airport is upgrading its runway lighting and NAVAIDS with projected completion in 2012. A new self-service fuel system is also being installed.
