In 1970, the Board of Aeronautics acquired Lebanon State Airport from a private owner to keep the airport from being sold for non-aviation use. In 1974, the State expanded and improved the existing runway. The airport is located west of U.S. Route 20, approximately one mile west of the community of Lebanon. The 1990 NPIAS identified the airport as a general aviation facility.
The community of Lebanon relies on the airport to support its economic development objectives. Several business class aircraft currently use the airport to engage in local business activities. Lebanon State Airport plays a significant role in the community from an economic standpoint, and also provides geographic coverage to the State's airport system. As part of the current OCASP, It has been recommended that Lebanon State Airport be upgraded to meet established criteria for an "economic development airport" to support the region's economic development strategy for attracting industries involved in producing high technology. The upgrades required include a runway extension and the provision of instrumentation. The airport is categorized as a Level 3 airport and should continue to be included in the NPIAS.
