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.

The main runway and the terminal at Redding Municipal Airport are getting a boost from federal stimulus funds.

Work is expected to start this summer on both projects, Airport Manager Rod Dinger said. Redding is getting $600,000 of U.S. Department of Transportation stimulus money to do rubber removal on the runway and put down what Dinger calls a surface “rejuvenator.”
