Richmond Municipal Airport (ICAO: KRIDFAA LID: RID) is a public airport six miles southeast of Richmond, in Wayne County, Indiana. It is owned by the Richmond Board of Aviation Commissioners.[1] The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 called it a general aviation facility.[3]

The first airline flights at Richmond were TWA DC-3s in late 1947; they left a few years later.


The airport covers 702 acres (284 ha) at an elevation of 1,140 feet (347 m). It has two asphalt runways: 6/24 is 5,500 by 150 feet (1,676 x 46 m) and 15/33 is 5,000 by 100 feet (1,524 x 30 m).[1]

In 2009 the airport had 19,896 aircraft operations, average 54 per day: 97% general aviation, 2% air taxi, and 1% military. 25 aircraft were then based at this airport: 76% single-engine, 16% helicopter, and 8% multi-engine.[1]
