History

Aviation in Kirksville, Missouri, started in 1924 just North of town, with a small grass strip owned by Roy B. “Cap” Dodson. The current facility, Kirksville Regional Airport, is located four miles south of Kirksville on the west side of US Highway 63 and serves the northeastern portion of the state. This current location was established in 1930 when the Federal Aviation Administration built an emergency landing strip on this site. The Airport has been an important part of Kirksville and Adair County since 1942 when it became one of the United States government’s Civil Pilots Training Program Centers and a War Training Service Center for the Army Air Corp during WWII.
