Special Event and Filmmaker Information
The Rantoul Airport has expansive ramp areas which provide ample parking for any event. Autocross, drivers training, Boy Scout Jamborees, and many other events occur every year. All vendors at events must receive a Transient Merchant License from the Rantoul Police Department (application below). The airport, founded on the former Chanute Air Force Base, also offers a very unique location for filmmakers. Please contact the Airport Manager to discuss your event.
