St. Paul Downtown Airport (STP)

STP is nestled along the Mississippi, with scenic limestone bluffs on one side and downtown St. Paul on another. During the 1950s, St. Paul Downtown Airport (Holman Field) vied with Minneapolis' airport to become the area's primary air transportation center. Ultimately, the Minneapolis airport became what is now Minneapolis-St. Paul International and St. Paul Downtown became the metro area's primary facility for private business aviation.

STP is an FAA-towered facility and is the only reliever airport in the MAC system with a runway longer than 5,000'. The airfield is approximately 576 acres in size and it has three runways: Runway 14/32, which is 6,491' x 150'; Runway 13/31, which is 4004' x 150', and Runway 9/27, which is 3,642' x 100'.

In 2008, a floodwall was installed to help protect STP against river flooding. Aircraft arresting systems designed to help stop planes that overrun runways were installed on Runways 14 and 32 for an added measure of safety.
