The airport was established in 1929 originally to support an air mail route between Tehachapi and Bakersfield. In 1952 after a magnitude 7.7 earthquake isolated Tehachapi from access by roads or rail, the airport served as the destination for an emergency relief airlift for several weeks. There are currently hangars and an industrial park on the south side of the airport. The city plans to begin an expansion of the airport to include a taxiway and hangars on the north side in 2009.
