John C. Tune Airport (ICAO: KJWN, FAA LID: JWN) is a public airport located in the western portion of the city of Nashville in Davidson County, Tennessee, United States. It is owned by the Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority, located approximately one mile (1.6 km) off of Briley Parkway. It is a Class E airport.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned JWN by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA.

History

Tune Airport, named in honor of a former chairman of the Airport Authority, was planned in the 1970s and built in the early 1980s as a "reliever airport" designed to divert almost all general aviation from Nashville International Airport (Berry Field), leaving the larger facility for flights on scheduled airlines and its service as an Air National Guard base. However, many general aviation users were reluctant to leave BNA and its well-developed infrastructure. Tune Airport was underutilized for years until increasing fees at BNA drove a considerable number of users to Tune in recent years.

Facilities and aircraft

John C. Tune Airport covers an area of 390 acres (158 ha) at an elevation of 495 feet (151 m) above mean sea level. It has one asphalt paved runway designed 2/20 which measures 5,500 by 100 feet (1,676 x 30 m). The runway is long enough to serve small jets such as Lear Jets.

For the 12-month period ending March 6, 2009, the airport had 72,998 aircraft operations, an average of 199 per day: 70% general aviation, 29% air taxi and <1% military. At that time there were 165 aircraft based at this airport: 79% single-engine, 16% multi-engine, 3% jet and 2% helicopter.
