Background

Willard is one of 10 commercial airports in Illinois.

The University of Illinois’ authority to operate a commercial airport was established by the legislature in 1943.

Willard Airport is the only commercial airport in the country owned and operated by an educational institution. Willard Airport, often referred to by its FAA designation "CMI," was named for former University of Illinois president Arthur Cutts Willard. Formal dedication of the airport on October 26, 1945 The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign established the Institute of Aviation at Willard Airport in 1946 First scheduled airline service in 19543Slide4

Background

Willard is comprised of 1700 acres. There are 4 runways including an 8100 foot long runway with a precision approach as well as a practice runway dedicated for flight training. The airspace is controlled by a tower operation funded by the FAA.

There are 23 buildings with 250,000 sq. ft. of space

Until 2005, Willard and the Institute of Aviation were a combined organization. Willard operates much as a small city with its own Fire Department, Public Works activities (snow removal, road repair), Security operations, Capital Improvement Plan, Comprehensive Land Use Plan, grant activities with State and Federal agencies and economic development functions. 4Slide5
