Central Wisconsin Airport (IATA: CWA, ICAO: KCWA, FAA LID: CWA), referred to as "C-Way", is a public airport located 3 miles (5 km) southeast of the central business district of Mosinee, in Marathon County, Wisconsin, United States. It is owned by Marathon County and Portage County.[1] It is included in the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2019-2023, in which it is categorized as a non-hub primary commercial service facility.[2] It is the fifth busiest of eight commercial airports in Wisconsin in terms of passengers served.[3]

The airport serves a large swath of Central and North Central Wisconsin including cities such as Marshfield, Stevens Point, Wausau and Wisconsin Rapids, as well as several tourism communities. It is 10 miles (16 km) south-southeast of Granite Peak Ski Area, located in Rib Mountain State Park.

Central Wisconsin Airport covers an area of 1,800 acres (730 ha) at an elevation of 1,277 feet (389 m) above mean sea level. It contains two concrete paved runways: 8/26 measuring 7,648 x 150 ft (2,331 x 46 m) and 17/35 measuring 6,501 x 150 ft (1,982 x 46 m).[1] For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2018, the airport had 12,680 operations, an average of 35 aircraft operations per day: 65% scheduled commercial / air taxi, 34% general aviation and less than 1% military. In October 2020, there were 25 aircraft based at this airport: 18 single-engine, 3 multi-engine, 3 jet and 1 glider aircraft. [4]

In 1997, the terminal was modernized with five new gates, and the highway access was reconstructed.

CWA has T-hangars for lease, or an individual or corporation can construct their own hangar.[5]

The airport is home to a maintenance base for Endeavor Air.

On 1 September 2012, the airport began a $10 million modernization program, moving the security checkpoints and enlarging the ticket counters to lower passenger congestion. The airport is gaining a geothermal energy system that will reduce utility bills, providing all but 20% of its heating and cooling requirements.[6]
