Killeen-Fort Hood Airport: A Brief History Timeline
- Killeen Fort Hood Airport had just outgrown its terminal and runway. At the same time, Robert Gray Army Airfield had sufficient space.
- The new Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport represents the first aviation facility to incorporate state-of-the-art security, baggage handling, and more. The airport is blending military use along with civilian use.
- Killeen shares its new airport at Robert Gray Army Airfield with Fort Hood, the largest active duty armoured post in the U.S. armed services. The original municipal airport had outgrown its terminal and runway, which at 5,500 feet couldn't accommodate RJs.
- Killeen faced a loss of commercial airline service and declining economic opportunities, but the partnership with Fort Hood opened up new possibilities.
- First, the military had to get on board. Then, coordination and consultation with numerous governmental agencies are necessary. As with the Killeen-Fort Hood Regional Airport, designed considerations also come into play.
- The municipality built everything for the new airport except the runway. Finally, these days any airport must consider new security requirements.
