The Kingman Army Airfield was founded at the beginning of WW II as an Aerial Gunnery Training Base. It was one of the Army Air Corps largest, training some 35,000 individuals. The airfield and Kingman played a significant role in this important era of America's history.
With the disposal of the military aircraft completed, Kingman AAF was returned to civilian use in 1949. It was developed into a civil airport and industrial park. Today, some civilian airliners are stored there and remarketed or recycled into spare parts and into their base metals.
Kingman Airport & Industrial Park now covers an area of 4,200 acres with two asphalt paved runways. It is located five miles north of Interstate 40, along U.S. Highway 66, and adjacent to the main line of the Burlington Northern and Santa Fe Rail Road. The industrial park is home to more than 70 businesses, employing over 2,100 people.
Location is critical to business, whether it's proximity to market, proximity to transportation, proximity to labor, or all these and more. Kingman has these attributes and allows easy a ccess Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Phoenix.
