Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport is the city's first airport and it is still one of the busiest. Dedicated by Charles Lindbergh in 1927, the Downtown Airport is just across the Missouri River from Kansas City's business center. Airport users have easy access to the metropolitan area and it is an ideal refueling stop for air travelers going cross country.

Prior permission is required for aircraft over 35 passengers, which the FBO can help in obtaining.
