redding_airportThe History
The Redding Airdrome preceded today’s Redding Municipal Airport. It was built in 1942 during World War II as a military flight training field by the Army Corps of Engineers. When construction was finished later that year, the airdrome became known as the Redding Army Airfield and also as the Redding-Shasta Army Airfield.
