Roanoke-Blacksburg Regional Airport’s history officially began in 1929, when the City of Roanoke leased 136 acres of land from Cannaday Farm for an airport site. This is where Roanoke Municipal Airport was established and, with a new name, still remains. During the past twenty years, the Commission has undertaken the construction of about $56.7 million in airfield improvements and a $4,000,000 terminal upgrade resulting in a virtually brand new airfield and terminal for this eighty-five year old facility.
