Collin County Regional Airport at McKinney (ICAO: KTKIFAA LID: TKI) is a public use airport located 30 miles north of Dallas, Texas.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned TKI by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[2] (which assigned TKI to Tokeen Seaplane Base in Alaska[3]).

The airport is used entirely for general aviation purposes and serves as a reliever airport for Dallas Love Field. The airport is owned by the City of McKinney and is home to many business aircraft including the fleet of several Top 500 corporations. Currently, the only fixed based operator (FBO) on the field is Cutter Aviation. There are several places to receive flight training on the field. These include Monarch Air, the North Texas Flying Club, the Texins Flying Club and many independent flight instructors.

The airport is wrapping up an aggressive Capital Program that includes the construction of a replacement runway by the end of 2012. In Feb. 2011, CCRA completed a new control tower and three taxilanes to allow access to various areas around the airport.
