HISTORY

Westminster airport began on a small farm field in a community along an old American Indian trail. The town was never in the direct path of commerce or early settlement, but it provided an abundance of needed local commodities; farm produce, livestock from hundreds-of-acres crops, for a growing Baltimore metropolitan area. Eventually the airport was the center of its own growing community - Carroll County is now a major supplier of local and regional produce.

A small airfield in a farmer's pastures soon it was dedicated by the Mayor of Westminster as a viable link to a growing nation, but little did anyone believe World conflict would push its development in a completely different directions. It was the onset of a World War when it first served the military to transport troops and later to forward supplies across both the Pacific and Atlantic Ocean.

Decades later in a time of peace, local and state transportation authorities recognized the airport as a vital link for commerce in the region. To honor those involved in the revitalization, the airport was renamed Carroll County Regional Airport, and then later dedicated to Jack B. Poage - aviator and FBO owner.

Air travel changed dramatically since 2001, improving slightly by 2003. The airport executives matched this upward trend with some forward-looking planning and county improvements to the regional airport. Both population and economic development, with an emphasis on fast and reliable modals of transportation, require an airport capable of supporting a diverse customer base. Now serving as a major connecting hub for numerous eastern destinations, its role increases each year as passengers, pilots and cargo carriers pass though the National Capital and Baltimore Regional areas.

You will still find generations of aviation at Carroll County Regional Airport.
