Sparta Municipal Airport
The Paul C. Miller Airport in Sparta (8D4) is an important West Michigan transportation hub. With 24-hour 100LL fuel and MOGAS, flight schools and a full-time FBO with aircraft maintenance on the field, our airport is lively, vibrant, and contributing to our local economy. Local tax dollars are NOT used to operate the Airport. We are one of a few in Michigan that can make that claim!
Note: Any Non-Profit listed below is in no way affiliated or supported by the Village of Sparta. They are however located at the airport and are listed on this site for that reason.
Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely! Many farmers and others with equipment come and buy Ethanol Free fuel.
What's wrong with ethanol?
Ethanol itself is corrosive to rubber and plastics. Leaving ethanol-laden fuel in your equipment or vehicle for an extended period of time can cause all kinds of damage. When ethanol is mixed with gasoline, and then left to sit for a long period of time (such as in a snowblower during the summer), it separates itself from the gasoline and binds with water. This becomes a deadly mixture for not just the rubber and plastic tubes, but for the entire engine itself.
100 LL (Low Lead) is used by most piston-engine airplanes.
90 Ethanol Free (MOGAS) is used in some planes and equipment.
Once you enter the automatic gate you need to use your flashers and use extreme caution. Airplanes ALWAYS have the right of way.
