Auburn University has developed into one of the largest universities in the South, remaining in the educational forefront with its traditional blend of arts and applied science and changing with the needs of today while living with a respect for the traditions and spirit that are Auburn. The Auburn University Regional Airport was first constructed in 1930 and originally served as a private airfield for the cities of Auburn and Opelika in addition to the Alabama Polytechnic Institute (API). Over the next decade the airport would transition from a private airfield into a training ground for the U.S. Military as a Navy/CAA War Training School which would set the foundation to become the present day School of Aviation.
