History[edit]

Originally built as a part of the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan (BCATP), Centralia Airport was home to the No. 9 Service Flying Training School as of September 21, 1942. Pilots were trained for the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) as well as other Commonwealth nation forces. In September 1947, the airport was renamed RCAF Station Centralia. During military ownership, various types of aircraft were operated including the Avro Anson, Douglas Dakota, Beechcraft Expeditor, North American Harvard, and de Havilland Canada DHC-1 Chipmunk. After military closure on March 31, 1967, the airport was renamed Huron Air Park and home to numerous light manufacturing firms.
