Spinks Airport, opened in 1988, is a general aviation reliever airport for the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. It is located 13 miles south of downtown Fort Worth, offers easy access to Interstate 35W, and bypasses DFW Class B airspace.
With a blend of corporate business and general aviation activity, Spinks offers amenities that cater to your needs. A paved 6,000-foot runway coupled with a 4,000-foot turf runway provides flexible options. Due to high demand and $17 million in private hangar investments, Spinks was recently named Most Improved Airport by TxDOT Aviation.
The airport offers high quality facilities and includes a full service FBO, multiple maintenance facilities, three flight schools, AWOS and car rental services. Numerous hotels, restaurants and retail shopping are within walking distance.
The following animation shows planned improvements to Spinks in the coming years. Work on Phase 1 began in 2010 following discussions with tenants.
