Emery Road

From Lane Co Oregon

  • As air transport became a viable alternative, a small airport was opened on Emery Road, east of the city limits in 1946 (Springfield News 1946). The airfield was granted approval as a Class 1 airport and McKenzie Flying Service was chartered to operate commercial transportation, student instruction, charter flights, and sales and service. Runways, hangars, fuel facilities and an office building were constructed during this time period (Springfield News 1946). Rail transport, though becoming less popular for passenger service, continued during this time period.
