Flying Cloud Airport (FCM)
FCM is situated 13.5 miles southwest of downtown Minneapolis, within the City of Eden Prairie, Minnesota. FCM is operational 24 hours per day for year-round flying and is considered a home base for flight schools, business jets, single- and multi-engine propeller driven aircraft and helicopters.
One of the busiest MAC-owned airports, FCM has an FAA-operated control tower and an instrument landing system. The tower operates daily in the winter from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., and from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. during the summer.
Airport improvements at FCM include the 2008 extension of Runway 10L/28R to 3,900' x 75' and the 2009 extension of Runway 10R/28L to 5,000' x 100.' Other improvements include lengthening the taxiway system and developing a new hangar area on the south side of the facility. The north-south runway, 18/36, remains 2,691' x 75'.
The FCM Operational Implementation Plan is the result of an agreement between the MAC and the City of Eden Prairie that outlines actions and procedures to help reduce noise impacts in the surrounding community.
