aerial of tillsonburg airport in 1950s with terminal and aircraft

Tillsonburg Regional Airport was originally constructed to support flight training by the Royal Canadian Air Force during World War II. It was a support base for the Aylmer, Ontario field (now the Ontario Police College).

For many years the federal government leased the airport to the Town of Tillsonburg. In 1981, the municipality took over full ownership and administration.

Since that time, extensive renovations and upgrades have been completed including an extended runway and a modern terminal building with a restaurant and flight school.

Today, the airport is home to approximately 50 aircraft--including the famous Canadian Harvard Aircraft Association.
