The Tillsonburg Regional Airport began as a World War II era flight training facility which subsequently was purchased by the Town of Tillsonburg in 1970. The airport is a general aviation facility home to several organizations and businesses. Regular users of the airport include the Ontario Provincial Police, Ornge (Ontario Air Ambulance), Canadian Coast Guard and corporate aircraft.
The airport has undergone a significant expansion and upgrade including the resurfacing of the main asphalt runway (08/26) and also lengthening it to 5,502 ft (1,677 m). A new terminal building was erected in 2010 and is located just south of the existing ATB.
A feasibility study to establish an on-site airport business park is underway in November 2009.
The airport also has one flight school.
