Ogden City has managed a municipal airport since 1928. The original airport sat on 200 acres in southeast Ogden (near where the Ogden Regional hospital is now located) and had three gravel runways. In 1940, work began on development of a section of land southwest of Ogden to meet army air service requirements. In May 1943, the airport was reestablished to its current location and on October 1943 was dedicated as the Robert H. Hinckley Airport. More of this info can be found in the Standard-Examiner Oct. 3, 1943 Pg 2-B and .
