History

Ottumwa Naval Air Station was constructed as a Naval Training Center during World War II. The facility, which is located approximately 5 miles (8.0 km) northwest of the central business district, served as a primary flight training center. Former U.S. President Richard M. Nixon served here from October 1942 until May 1943.[4]

In October 1947, the Navy abandoned the air station, and sold it to the City of Ottumwa. In December, 1947, Central States Airlines began commercial air service to Ottumwa. Ottumwa was later served by Braniff Airlines, and then Ozark Airlines.[5] Ozark Airlines ended service to Ottumwa in the late 1970s and was replaced by Mississippi Valley Airlines until 1983. In 1985, Ottumwa Industrial Airport was served by Great Lakes Aviation, with that service coming to an end in 2001. Since that time, Ottumwa has not been served by an air carrier.

In 2002, the City of Ottumwa, in conjunction with the Federal Aviation Administration constructed a new terminal at the airport, replacing the World War II-era operations building that had served as the terminal. The new facility cost nearly $1 million.
