RCAF and World War II Airfield 1940-1946
From 1940 to 1945 it was known as RCAF Detachment Edenvale (No. 1 Relief Landing Field) as an emergency relief field supporting Camp Borden and used by the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan's No. 1 Service Flying Training School. After 1946 the RCAF buildings at Edenvale were demolished and the site abandoned.
In approximately 1942 the aerodrome was listed as RCAF Aerodrome - Edenvale, Ontario at with a variation of 8 degrees west and elevation of 700 ft (210 m). Three runways were listed as follows:
|3/21||2,900 ft (880 m)||100 ft (30 m)||Hard Surfaced|

Civilian Use 1950-1959
Canadian Army 1962-1988
The Canadian Army took over the site in 1962 and referred to as Edenvale Transmitter Station Bunker, a remote radio communications station to support the Cold War effort (see Emergency Government Headquarters). The military closed the station in 1988 and left by 1994. The site's bunker, a twin of the Diefenbunker in Ottawa was sealed off in 2005.
Civilian Use 2002-present
Since 2002, the airfield has operated as a private civilian aerodrome.
In November 2018 it was announced that the Canadian Air and Space Museum, which was forced out of Downsview Park in Tornto, will reopen at Edenvale Airport, in 2019 and be renamed the Canadian Air & Space Conservancy.
