Welcome to Historic Stanton Airfield
Historic Stanton Airfield is a privately-owned, public-use airport located 35 miles south of the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport on Highway 19, halfway between Northfield and Cannon Falls. Pilots from all over the Midwest come to Stanton for the nostalgic feel, open skies, friendly atmosphere and to experience some of the greatest grass runway flying in the Midwest. We are home to the Minnesota Soaring Club, Twin City Barnstormers, and Stanton Squadron of Civil Air Patrol.
A variety of aviation services including maintenance and instruction are available year round. Our grass runways and experienced instructors make us one of the best places to get your private, sport pilot license or tailwheel endorsement. If you want to experience the thrill of motor-less flight take a glider ride. Gift certificates are available for glider or airplane rides or other aviation services.
Join us some sunny day and experience one of the best recreational airports in the Midwest. Visit our Stanton history display. Did we mention you can always get ice cream or a bottle of Coke?
