World War II

The airport opened in April 1940. On 5 July 1942, during World War II, the airport was taken over by the United States Army Air Forces and used as a contract primary pilot training airfield under the AAF Gulf Coast Training Center (later Central Flying Training Command). The 384th Army Air Force Base Unit administered the contract to a civilian operated primary flying school (Lafayette School of Aeronautics) as a sub-base of DeRidder Army Airbase, Louisiana. Had four axillary airfields nearby for emergency and overflow landings. Flying training was performed with Fairchild PT-19s as the primary trainer. Also had several PT-17 Stearmans and a few P-40 Warhawks assigned.

Transferred from jurisdiction of DeRidder AAB to Esler Army Airfield (Third Air Force) on 24 March 1944. Mission of base became training of replacement combat aircrews. Inactivated 30 September 1945 and airport returned to civil control.
