The airport provides both corporate and recreational flyers with a conveniently located facility, offering an alternative to the more congested South Bend Regional Airport nearby.  Hangar rentals and ground and tie-down leases are available for both private and corporate aircraft.
The City of Niles serves as the fixed base operator and rents facilities at the airport to provide general aviation fuel and jet fuel. Space is available to build your own private hanger using our inexpensive ground leases.  Joe Ray, the City's Public Works Director, also serves as the Michigan state-licensed Airport Manager.
