Originally named the “Montgomery County Airport,” the Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport was constructed in the early by the industrialist, Charles F. Kettering, to support one of the nation’s first corporate flight departments.  The Airport’s primary role was to serve as a private general aviation airport for southern Montgomery County, Ohio.

To honor the Wilbur and Orville Wright and celebrate Dayton’s rich aviation history, Dayton General Airport South was renamed “Dayton-Wright Brothers Airport” on December 6, 1995.   Today, Airport facilities include a runway equipped with a partial precision approach consisting of a localizer (LOC), approach lighting system (MALS), runway lighting (MIRL) and a visual approach lighting system (VASI), 68 T-hangars, 6 conventional hangars, 5,000 sq. ft. maintenance facility and  9,600 sq. ft administration building.
