Zelienople Municipal Airport (ICAO: KPJC, FAA LID: PJC) is a public airport in Beaver County, Pennsylvania,[1] a mile west of Zelienople,[1] a borough in Butler County, Pennsylvania, in the Pittsburgh metropolitan area.[1] The airport is owned by the Borough of Zelienople and operated by the Zelienople Municipal Authority.[2] The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2011–2015 categorized it as a general aviation facility.[3]

It serves the community of Zelienople in Butler County, but the airport is over the county line in Beaver County, in Fombell, Pennsylvania,[citation needed] Franklin Township.[4]

Fire response consists of 2 Engines, 1 Tanker, 1 Brush Truck, 1 Squad, and Command Vehicle. The airport is between PA 288 and PA 588. The airport began service in 1958, and is one of many medium-sized airports north of Pittsburgh.
