About Homer

Homer Airport (IATA: HOM, ICAO: PAHO, FAA LID: HOM) is a state-owned public-use airport located two nautical miles (4 km) east of the central business district of Homer, a town in the Kenai Peninsula Borough of the U.S. state of Alaska.

Homer Airport covers an area of 1,040 acres (420 ha) at an elevation of 84 feet (26 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 3/21 with a 6,701 x 150 ft (2,042 x 46 m) asphalt pavement, and a facility for floatplanes on nearby Beluga Lake. For the 12-month period ending January 1, 2006, the airport had 49,821 aircraft operations, an average of 136 per day: 46% scheduled commercial, 32% air taxi, 22% general aviation and 1% military. At that time there were 93 aircraft based at this airport: 90% single-engine, 4% multi-engine, 3% helicopter and 2% ultralight. The FAA completed a new master plan for the airport in 2006 and expansion and safety improvements are ongoing. The plan called for a new haul out area for floatplanes, a public-use helipad, a building for managing rescue and firefighting operations based at the airport, and other general improvements.
