Smyrna Airport



For the military use of this facility prior to 1971, see Sewart Air Force Base

Smyrna Airport (IATA: MQY, ICAO: KMQY) is a public joint civil-military airport in the town of Smyrna in Rutherford County, Tennessee, USA. It is the "reliever" airport for Nashville International Airport, located twelve nautical miles (22 km) to the north. Smyrna Airport is the third largest airport in Tennessee and is the state's busiest general aviation airport. Prior to March 1971, the facility was an active military installation known as Sewart Air Force Base.

Smyrna Airport currently operates as a joint use training facility with a Tennessee Army National Guard helicopter unit, Army Aviation Support Facility #1 (AASF#1), which operates 60 helicopters with 300 full time Army National Guard personnel. The airport also serves as an outlying Air National Guard training facility for C-130 Hercules aircraft of the 118th Airlift Wing of the Tennessee Air National Guard at Nashville International Airport, and C-5 Galaxy aircraft of the Tennessee Air National Guard's 164th Airlift Wing at the Memphis International Airport. The Tennessee Army National Guard also leases part of the airport to maintain the Grubbs/Kyle Training Center. This facility supports 24 different units and 1,270 assigned Army National Guard personnel, 162 of which are full time, as well as numerous military aircraft.
