Grayson County offers several airports throughout its region.

One of the busiest is North Texas Regional Airport (formerly Perrin AFB) is a county-owned public use airport in Grayson County. It is located between the cities of Sherman and Denison, used entirely for general aviation purposes. As a general aviation reliever airport, unconfirmed reports suggest that the airport might potentially (in the distant future) serve as a third airport for the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex to handle travelers from its growing northern suburbs. If this occurs, commercial traffic would be focused on regional jet airline operations. The recently completed extension of State Highway 289 passes the airport on the west side.  A new FBO/Terminal building is currently under construction which will allow NTRA to compete with services from other airport in the region.

Sherman Municipal Airport (KSWI) provides a friendly general aviation airport located on the southeast edge of Sherman, Texas, only minutes from downtown. The airport is close to Austin College, the downtown business district, near local industries and companies in Blalock Industrial Park, and the core of local, state, and federal government offices in Sherman.
