The Kingman Army Airfield, which serves today as the Kingman Airport and Industrial Park (IGM) was founded at the beginning of WWII as one of the nation largest aerial gunnery training bases. After the war, the Kingman Airfield served as one of the largest reclamation sites for obsolete military aircraft. Today, the airport spans 4,000 acres and has two active runways; the primary runway is just under 7,000 feet in length by 150-feet wide, and the secondary runway is also just under 7,000 feet in length by 75-feet wide.
There are approximately 150 general aviation operators and/or individual aircraft owners at the airport along with 250 aircraft in storage. The aircraft in storage are in surplus of market demands with most of them maintained in airworthy condition.
In addition to providing aircraft rental, maintenance, charter, and fueling services, Kingman Airport also provides air ambulance services, supports the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) aviation operations, and services the Mohave County Sheriff’s Department aviation section.
The fully developed Airport Industrial Park attracts manufacturers with reasonable land costs and the opportunity to build regional trade and service centers. This separate sector of the City of Kingman works closely with the Airport General Manager to ensure the airport and industrial park remain an integral and vital part of the local economy.
The Kingman Municipal Airport is an exciting place with large growth potential for its employees, the airport, the city and the region. The city is working to build an innovative and collaborative team that will serve the airport’s customers with professionalism, integrity, and commitment to making every customer encounter with the airport and City a positive and pleasant experience.
