Meacham is the city’s oldest operating airport — dating to 1925. From its humble beginnings as a 100-acre site with runways made of dirt and sod, the airport has grown into a premiere general aviation airport.
Times have changed since places from Meacham International Airport first took to the sky. Air travel was a novelty back then, with the Wright brothers’ first manned flights taking place merely 20 years before. But the airport has grown and changed with the years, and celebrated its longevity on July 25, 2015, with a 90th birthday celebration.
Presently, the airport supports about 100,000 operations a year, including general aviation, military, air carrier and air taxi operations.
