About the Project
From its roots in 1948 as a rural, crop dusting base to today’s active center for flight training, aviation business, and recreational flying, the Chandler Airport has played an important role in Chandler’s development.
In 2010-2011, the Chandler Museum and the Airport Commission partnered to tell the history of the Airport. A community committee, formed by Commissioner Chelle Daly, worked with Public History Coordinator Jean Reynolds and dedicated volunteers to collect interviews, photos and information.
This website shares the stories and photos of individuals who contributed to the development of the airport over the years, whether through management, businesses, or as users. Explore this site to learn more about the airport’s past, including a 30-minute video, “Chandler Airport Stories.”
