A History of Space Coast Regional Airport
In 1943, the U.S. Government constructed the Titusville-Cocoa Airport on land jointly owned by both cities. The airfield included two 5,000 ft x 150 ft runways with an associated taxiway system. The U.S. Government developed the airport and its facilities to serve as a supplementary airfield to the Sanford Naval Air Station during World War II. The airport was built by the Civil Aeronautics Administration under the “Development of Landing Areas for National Defense” Program to help relieve other area military bases of training exercises required because of World War II. The government retained control of the airport throughout the duration of the war.
After the war, the U.S. Navy transferred the airport property and associated improvements to the War Assets Administration, which deeded the airport back to the Cities of Titusville and Cocoa by a Surrender of Lease and Quit Claim Deed dated April 18, 1947.
An airport authority was established by the Cities of Titusville and Cocoa to own, operate, improve, and maintain the airport.
The property was transferred to the authority by Quit Claim Deeds from the City of Titusville on March 14, 1961 and from the City of Cocoa on April 11, 1961.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration began development of the Missile Launch Complex on Merritt Island. The advantageous location of the airport allowed it to play an increasingly important role in the transportation of NASA personnel and equipment.
