The airport was opened in April 1940 as Conners Field. Leased by the United States Army Air Corps in 1941 as an auxiliary training field for the Hendricks Army Airfield B-17 Flying Fortress training school near Sebring during World War II. Runways and other facilities improved by the Army, used for training touch-and-go landings and emergencies. No permanent military units or personnel assigned. With the end of the war in 1945, returned for civil use.
Operated as a general aviation airport ever since.
