Executive Airport

Located at 151st Street and Pflumm Road, between the cities of Olathe and Overland Park, Kansas, Executive Airport is in the heart of Johnson County's economic belt and is the choice for many corporate, business and general aviation users.  With over 40,000 annual operations and approximately 120 based aircraft, Johnson County Executive Airport is traditionally the fourth busiest towered airport in the state of Kansas. 


The airport is located on approximately 500 acres of land with a 4,097' single runway, parallel taxiways, Federal contract air traffic control tower, and medium intensity airfield lighting. Localizer/DME approaches are available from the north and the south. The JCAC Maintenance Shop is located at 15335 Pflumm Road in Olathe, KS 66062.


Executive Airport is home to two full service FBOs. In addition to all standard aircraft services, airport businesses offer air charter, aircraft sales, and flight instruction services from smaller single-engine aircraft up to corporate jets.


Originally named Morse Field, Johnson County Executive Airport was constructed in the early 1940's as a Naval auxiliary field during World War II in support of the Olathe Naval Air Station, which is now New Century AirCenter. The airport was deeded to the City of Olathe in 1951 and from the city to Johnson County in 1967. At that time, the Board of County Commissioners created the Johnson County Airport Commission to manage, operate, and improve the airport.
