Indiana County–Jimmy Stewart Airport (IATA: IDI, ICAO: KIDI, FAA LID: IDI) (Indiana County Airport or Jimmy Stewart Field) is a county-owned public airport two miles (3 km) east of the borough of Indiana, in Indiana County, Pennsylvania.[1] The airport is about 65 miles (105 km) northeast of Pittsburgh and is in the Pittsburgh Combined Statistical Area. It is classified as a business service airport by the Pennsylvania Bureau of Aviation.

The airport was named after silver-screen legend Jimmy Stewart, who hails from Indiana, PA.


The airport covers 276 acres (112 ha) and has one asphalt runway, 11/29, 4,001 x 75 ft (1,220 x 23 m). The runway has medium intensity runway lighting (MIRL). The airport has three nonprecision approaches (LOC RWY 28, GPS 10, GPS 28).[1]

In the year ending March 31, 2007 the airport had 26,100 aircraft operations, average 71 per day: 95% general aviation, 3% military and 2% air taxi. 45 aircraft are based at the airport: 89% single-engine, 9% multi-engine and 2% ultralight.[1]

The Indiana County Airport Authority has received approval and funding for a new 5500 x 100 ft runway and will allow the installation of an instrument landing system (ILS). The old runway will become a parallel taxiway.
