Sauk Prairie Airport
The Sauk Prairie Airport began a formal relationship with the Town of Prairie du Sac in 1963 following the signing of a lease with the township creating a public-use airport managed by the Sauk Prairie Airport, Inc. (SPAI). Currently, the airport houses 30 privately owned hangars and 32 based aircraft. A wide variety of aircraft utilize the facilities at the Sauk Prairie Airport and are used for recreation as well as civilian/military training, government/corporate business and air ambulance services. The airport also sees Blackhawk (UH-60) helicopters operated by the Wisconsin Army National Guard training here on a regular basis.
Easily accessed via U.S. Highway 12, the general aviation complex hosts two runways (both of which are 2,940 feet long and 60 feet wide), one maintenance facility, an aerial applicator business and a corporate flight department. While the main hangar at the Sauk Prairie Airport doesn’t provide the extended services of some fixed base operators, it does offer wireless Internet access, office space, complimentary coffee and exceptional customer service.
