Description

The Works Progress Administration provided labor for the construction of Curtis Field between 1940 and 1941 under project number 165-1-66-325. The City of Brady and McCulloch County provided equipment for leveling and grading.

In 1942, the facility was taken over by the United States Army Air Forces and was used during World War II as a pilot training airfield.

The City of Brady currently owns the airport and operates it as a general aviation facility.
