History

 

            Calgaryís very first airport was opened a few kilometers west of the city of Calgary in a place called Bowness in 1914. The airport itself consisted of a single grass airstrip and a make-shift hut which doubled as an aircraft hanger and airport terminal. In 1919, the very first flight over the Rocky Mountains successfully landed at Calgaryís first airport. Since its conception, the airport relocated to two other sites before finally coming to rest at the north-east end of the city in 1939. It was officially christened McCall Field in respect to a very decorated WW I flying ace, Captain Fred McCall, who was also one of the cities pioneer aviators of the time.
