A Brief History of the Mid-State Airport
Built in the 1930s as an emergency landing field, the airport was originally named Black Moshannon Airport. It opened in 1940 and was used by military and private planes. From 1953 to 1978, Allegheny Airlines provided commuter service.
In 1988, the Mid-State Regional Airport Authority formed to manage the facility. The Airport Authority is comprised of nine municipalities from Centre and Clearfield Counties.
Today, the Mid-State Airport is licensed and operated by the Mid-State Regional Airport Authority. It is utilized by private pilots, is home of the Civil Air Patrol, and serves as a forest fire attack base for the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of Forestry.
