History
Historically aviation started on a sod field southwest of Glasgow in the 1930’s. Winn Davis, Harry Norris and Hollis Norris supplied the land. It was known as the Norris-Davis Airport. Robert “Todd” Moore was the only “Ace Pilot” in World War II from Barren County – thus the name “Moore Field”.

Industrial Development kindled much local interest in aviation. December 18, 1957, the first Airport Board of six members was appointed. The new Airport Board was commissioned to find a site and build a new airport. Financing was 50 percent federal, 25 percent state and 25 percent local.

There are many industries here who supply employment for 13, 000 workers to keep the local economy on an even keel. The Glasgow Airport was one of the factors which brought them here.

The Airport is now at a “crossroads” in aviation for the Glasgow area. Larger planes are coming in and even larger ones want to. The new “Master Plan” has been completed. Intensive studies have been made to determine future aviation needs for the Glasgow area. The Glasgow Airport Board continues to work toward improving the Airport and its facilities so that it can better serve the needs of the entire Glasgow-Barren County area.
