Draayer says the airport serves an important part of the entire transportation system that supports Le Mars, and for those who may wonder if the airport is being utilized he references the airport to that of a county gravel road.

Draayer says the majority of the air traffic at Le Mars is business related as opposed to recreational flying. Draayer says he would like to see the airport expand its runway to five

thousand feet in order to remain competitive with other regional airports.  However, Draayer admits before that can happen there would need to be some changes done to the Floyd River.
