Midland International Air & Space Port (KMAF)
Midland International Air and Space Port is located in the city of Midland in western part of Texas. It was first built as Sloan Field in 1927 but then became an army air field during World War II. It was at this point that the airport gained the name Midland. After the war years were over, the airport began to be used for civilian flights and then became Midland International Airport.
In 2014, the FAA licensed the airport to serve space flights, which is how it gained the designation Space Port.
