Arkansas Department of Aeronautics

The airport northwest of Mountain Home was constructed in 1965 by the local Industrial Development Corporation of the Ozarks to provide air service for the industrial district, a 700-acre tract. Funding was private. From 1966 to 1975, the City of Mountain Home leased the airport, and a private air service leased it from 1975 to 1979.

The Baxter County Airport Authority was formed in 1979 to develop and operate the airport. The name was changed to Ozark Regional Airport in 2005.
