AKRON FULTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT HISTORY
Named for longtime manager Bain Ecarius “Shorty” Fulton and his son Bain J. “Bud” Fulton, it first opened in 1929 and has operated in several different capacities since then, including a U.S. naval air station known as Naval Air Station Akron. Although the airport has only served general aviation for many years, it does technically have United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement facilities, and is therefore considered an international airport. The airport did have commercial scheduled airline service until the 1950s. It is now used for both cargo and private planes.
In 1985, the Akron Fulton Airport was recognized as the 3rd National Landmark of Soaring by the National Soaring Museum.
The Akron-Fulton International Airport Administration Building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
