Travel Tips


Our terminal is small and easy to access. You’ll need to arrive about 60 minutes before your flight to park, check your bags, and get through security. Prior to arriving, we suggest you download the United Airlines app to prepare for your trip. The app can be used to check in, receive a boarding pass, and more.

We are located on a military installation and to access the airport you'll pass through the installation gates. If you don't have a military identification card, you CAN use our airport - you'll just need to follow current installation access procedures.

Fort Leonard Wood does make updates to their security access procedures based on security intelligence. Their process can change, so we recommend
always checking here to make sure you are prepared. You can also call them directly here: 573-596-0590 or 573-596-0356.

Many states are also working to become compliant with the recent REAL ID act, including Missouri. We strongly recommend checking the latest list of compliant states or the extension list before traveling. If you have another form of official identification other than your driver’s license, we recommend keeping it with you when you’re traveling. You can learn more about the
REAL ID act, including which states are compliant, here
