Historical Note

Airspace is the portion of the atmosphere controlled by a political entity including any three-dimensional portion of the atmosphere. It is subject to the same territorial sovereignty laws as both land and sea. Airports use these maps to show the recommended methods of approach and departure for airplanes when it comes to the airspace itself, and how to use the space for maximum efficiency and safety.

Weir Cook Municipal Airport was intitially called Indianapolis Municipal Airport in 1931. It replaced the older Stout Field as the main airport for the city. It was renamed for Harvey Weir Cook of Wilkinson, Indiana, who was a flying ace for the United States in World War I and died flying his P-39 over new Caledonia in World War II. Eagle Creek Airpark opened in 1966 and still serves as a small public airfield for around 57 flights a day as of 2019. Speedway Airport is no longer operational. The Indianapolis Metropolitan Airport is located eight miles Northeast of Indianapolis and still serves 63 flights a day as of 2029.
