Located 3 miles northwest of the city, the Municipal airport is one of the busiest general aviation airports in northern Indiana. The Aviation Association of Indiana's Fall 2012 report lists the Elkhart Municipal Airport's economic impact return to the community at $197,000,000 annually! More than 1,520 jobs earning an average salary of $69,000 would not exist if not for the presence of the  Elkhart Municipal Airport. Or as we like to say,
"No Plane No Gain".
