Airport History.  In 1943, the citizens of Ames voted 1,225 to 257 to establish a municipal airport. In the beginning, two turf runways pioneered the development of the Ames Municipal Airport. Since then, two paved runways, numerous aircrafts and hangars, modern terminal, and several other additions have contributed to the growth of this valuable resource in our community. In 2007, the City of Ames leased the municipal airport to Hap's Air Service, the current Fixed Base Operator. The City of Ames owns and operates the airport.
