Pocatello Regional Airport traces its roots to World War II, when the U.S. Army opened Pocatello Army Airfield in 1943. This camp was constructed as a heavy bomber (B-17 and B-24) training base. The U.S. Army Airfield was deemed surplus property in 1949 and the City of Pocatello acquired 3,200 acres from the U.S. Army to build a new airport. The years after World War II brought population and economic growth to the area. For a brief time in 1962, Pocatello was the largest city in Idaho.
