Prescott Airport Serving Since 1926
By USA Real Estate
Did You Know?Amelia Earhart completed her trans-continental flight on August 25, 1932. It is mind boggling the advancements that have occurred in the past 84 years!
We are incredibly fortunate to have our own local airport in Prescott Arizona, The Prescott Municipal Airport. The Airport is located just north of Highway 89A off Highway 89 at 6500 MacCurdy Drive, Prescott. On July 4, 1926 the Yavapai County Chamber of Commerce opened the airstrip that was built by volunteers and pilots. The Prescott Airport website has notes from 1940 stating that in 1940 “Prescott and Nogales had their lumpy grass runways changed to smooth pavement”.
