Asheboro Regional Airport (ICAO: KHBI, FAA LID: HBI) is a city-owned public-use airport located six nautical miles (11 km) southwest of the central business district of Asheboro, a city in Randolph County, North Carolina, United States.[1] It was formerly known as Asheboro Municipal Airport.

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this facility is assigned HBI by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[2] (which assigned HBI to Harbour Island in the Bahamas[3]).

For the 12-month period ending July 7, 2008, the airport had 15,500 aircraft operations, an average of 42 per day: 97% general aviation and 3% military. At that time there were 45 aircraft based at this airport: 78% single-engine, 20% multi-engine and 2% jet.[1]
