Chippewa Valley Regional Airport is a public-use airport located in Chippewa County, Wisconsin, United States. It is three nautical miles (6 km) north of the central business district of Eau Claire and is owned by Eau Claire County.

It is the largest airport in the 30-county northern Wisconsin area, and serves primarily the Chippewa Valley region, operating on a budget approved by a commission equally representing the interests of Chippewa, Eau Claire and Dunn counties.

The airport is occasionally used as an alternative landing site for flights bound for Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. As of April 2010, only one commercial airline, United Airlines, provides service for CVRA to Chicago O'Hare International.

A new $3.9M 65' control tower was built in 2005. In November 2006, the tower opened, thus making it safer for pilots. Passenger loading is from the tarmac.
