Johnson Executive Airport History
Originally constructed as Morse Field in the early 1940s, the Johnson County Executive Airport (OJC) was purposed as a naval auxiliary field during World War II, aiding the operations of the Olathe Naval Air Station, presently known as the New Century AirCenter. Upon the war’s conclusion, the airport was deeded to the City of Olathe in 1951 and subsequently transferred to Johnson County in 1967. This transfer saw the creation of the Johnson County Airport Commission to oversee the airport’s management and enhancements. In the 1970s and briefly in 1984, Air Midwest operated commercial flights from OJC to Kansas City International Airport, Wichita Mid-Continent Airport, and St. Louis Downtown Airport. A severe storm in March 2017 caused extensive damage to several hangars and airplanes, which were attributed to straight-line winds reaching up to 85 mph.
Over the past two decades, the airport has witnessed significant improvements, including taxiway construction and rehabilitation from 2021-2025, replacement of runway 18/36 and rehabilitation of the West Taxilane and NE Apron between 2010 and 2020, and apron rehabilitation in 2009.
