The current site for moving the Kingman Airport was selected and purchased in 1946.  The original primary surface was turf.  An asphalt surface for a primary runway surface of 3900' x 50' was constructed in 1971.  The first turf crosswind, 2,600' x 170', was also constructed in 1971.
In 1988 a group of local citizens concerned with the deterioration of the airport was formed to find ways to improve the airport.  In 1992 a new development plan was adopted and approved by FAA.  FAA funding for such improvements, however, did not happen until 1999.  The first grant fund improvements for the airport started in year 2000.
The City of
Kingman, with financial aid from FAA and KDOT grant funds, is completing Phase I and II of the Kingman Airport Master Plan.
