Welcome to A. Paul Vance Fredericktown Regional Airport
Highway OO North
1935 Highway OO
Joel Kemp, Manager
The airport in Fredericktown began with the dream of a few men who celebrated the new, growing world of aviation. In the 1950's, the first runway 1500 feet was built just south of Mine LaMotte. Over the years, the runway increased to 2,374 feet and is now 4,000 feet-enough to accommodate a small jet. For over 20 years, the terminal buildingh has been an old mobile home trailer. In 2011, the new terminal building was completed. In special ceremonies in August 2011, the airport was renamed in honor of A. Paul Vance, a man whose vision and love of aviation and community development has been an inspiration to all.
