Spirit of St Louis Airport
Spirit of St Louis Airport in Chesterfield MO is an airport and an aviation museum and a tour center, all in one. This airport is named after Charles Lindbergh, who was the first pilot to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean from New York to Paris on May 20–21, 1927. This airport's IATA code is SUS.
The primary purpose of this airport as it stands today as an active general aviation facility as well as its heritage designation by the FAA as a "Historic District", which includes five hangars built during the late 1920s and early 1930s, two Art Deco terminal buildings constructed in 1957 and 1969 respectively. The historic district's listing is noted under reference number 95002996. These terminals are available for tours throughout the year.
But as to its original purpose as the home base of Spirit Airlines, it is now a historical museum.
Chesterfield's Spirit of St Louis Airport in Chesterfield MO is owned and operated by the City of Chesterfield as a general aviation facility anchored by five hangars on about 240 acres near I-64/US40 interchange at the intersection with Clarkson Road. This airport was opened for commercial operations in September 1927 after Charles Lindbergh campaigned for its construction during his famous "Lindbergh Line" campaign throughout the midwest US.
