Drake Field was the commercial airport for Northwest Arkansas until the opening of the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport (XNA) in Highfill, Arkansas. It was served by Central Airlines Douglas DC-3s and Convair 600s from 1955 until Central was acquired by the original Frontier Airlines in 1967. Frontier started scheduled jet service at Drake Field in 1977, weekly Boeing 737-200s to Dallas/Ft. Worth via Fort Smith.[3] Frontier Convair 580s flew nonstop to Dallas/Ft. Worth and direct to Kansas City, Little Rock, Memphis, St. Louis and Tulsa; Frontier pulled out in 1982.

Facilities

The airport covers 631 acres (255 ha) at an elevation of 1,251 feet (381 m). Its one runway, 16/34, is 6,006 by 100 feet (1,831 x 30 m).[1]

The Arkansas Air & Military Museum is at the airport, with part of its collection housed in a heritage-listed hangar built in the 1940s and several aircraft on display outdoors.[4]

In the year ending April 30, 2009 the airport had 35,267 aircraft operations, average 96 per day: 97% general aviation, 2% air charter, 1% military, and <1% airline. 85 aircraft were then based at the airport: 69 single-engine, 7 multi-engine, 8 jets and one helicopter.[1]
