The PVGP's Jet Center Party takes place in the two original hangars that are shown above when the Butler Airport was opened on September 27, 1929. There was much fanfare and aircraft demonstrations for the grand opening which featured three turf runways. It was a spectacular airfield for the times and marked a transition in both the U.S. and Butler County. For more than 20 years the Butler airfield was one of the primary airports servicing Pittsburgh until the Greater Pittsburgh International Airport was completed in the early 1950s. The Dow Jones Industrial Average reached an all-time high that same week it opened and was promptly followed just one month later by the Stock Market Crash of 1929.


Amelia Earhart received her instrument training here in addition to having long-range fuel tanks installed on her Lockheed 5B Vega. In 1932 she flew the single-engine aircraft called “The Little Red Bus,” across the Atlantic Ocean and eventually nonstop across the U.S.


Established by Pittsburgh Aviation Industries Corp. the airport opened its 230-acre site in Penn Township, as the Pittsburgh-Butler Airport on September 27 and 28, 1929. The airport was constructed six miles south of Butler on what were originally the Nixon and Dodds farms.


Trans World Airlines showed interest in Butler County. Actually, for a period of time, TWA owned the assets of the facility and changed the name to Keystone Airport. Although they never flew into Butler, the airline did own the rights to all of the air routes in the area. Complete History of Pittsburgh-Butler Airport
