Neighbour complaint about air traffic around the airport started to increase in 2004 and peaked in 2005 with over 15,000 notifications. It is unlikely that the airport will be closed due to the commitments made by the German government and its enormous commercial implications. Throughout World War II, the airport was used by the United States Air Force on June 22, 1942 as Thunderbird Field #2 as the prime flying academy for air force crews.
Thunderbird #2 has completed more than 5,500 college graduates since its founding, a combined threefold more than the initial amount of AAF's expanded programme. Thunderbird #2 planes also flown nearly 26,500,000 nautical miles, more than 3,000 flights around the globe at the same time. On 16 October 1944 the building was inactive.
Thunderbird #2 went through a transition during operations that led it from a small patch of secluded wasteland to a elementary class. Military Air Force officials such as General Henry H. Arnold and Lieutenant General B.K. Yount (commander of the Army Air Forces training command, and the civil contracted schools of Leland Hayward and John H. Connelly) contributed to this change.
Southwest Airways' one of three valley based educational facilities, the first Thunderbird #2 cadet category to arrive before the peloton was declared operational, had to be educated at Thunderbird Field #1 in Glendale. It was not until 22 July that all employees, comprising 28 flying teachers, were able to move to Scottsdale.
During World War II, Thunderbird #2 dedicated all its facilities to the education of more and more Cadet. The summit was achieved in November 1943: 615 Kadetten flying an average of 2 hrs a day, resulting in 1,845 separated take-offs and landings. 615 Kadetten were on the summit in November 1943. Over a ten-week time span, the pupils were given a 65 hour flying course and 109 hour soil schooling.
Despite the intensification of education, the subject acquired a wide spread renown for the depth of education and high profile alumni. A rise in the number of college undergraduates led to a similar rise in the number of workers until January 1944, when Thunderbird II's payslip included 508 workers with a combined annual wage of $115,247.
The civil contractor completed their first contract so well that by 4 August 1944 only 40 of the originally 64 elementary colleges were still in use. Thunderbird #2 ended with only 15 left open to fulfill the role of basic train. The Arizona State Teachers College (now Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona) purchased the airport after the end of the Great Patriotic War to implement its own air travel programme.
Soon, the distances from the campsite and the costs of running an aeronautics programme persuaded the university to give up its plan. At the end of October 2015 it was announced that JetPurple Airwayz, focusing on passenger services in Bus Division, would commence ultra-short flights from Scottsdale Airport with first flights to San Diego, Las Vegas and Puerto Penasco.
Currently, the airport's overall plans do not provide for scheduled air services due to aircraft noises. It has two large carriers of air bases on the site, Signature Flight Support and Landmark Aviation (formerly named Corporation Jets). Scottsdale Fire Department runs a building next to the turret. The Scottsdale Airport is also home to the civil air patrol squadrons 314 and 310, which help with on-site operations on demand.
