Kissimmee/Orlando Campus Information
Kissimmee Gateway Airport in Kissimmee, Florida was originally known as Kissimmee Army Airfield. The United States Army Air Forces opened the airport in April 1940 as part of a tactical combat simulation school. The Air Force requested the property from the City of Kissimmee in 1942 to build an airfield for pilot training. In 1947, the airport property was given back to the City as long as it continued to operate as an airport.
The first airplane landed in Kissimmee in 1912. By October 1918, a landing field was in place on the shores of Lake Tohopekaliga near Kissimmee. Pilots would fly in from various areas to make stops before proceeding to other cities. The closest major airport to Kissimmee is Orlando (MCO).
