KSCX has humble beginnings as a tiny airport in rural Scott County, Tennessee. However, Senator Howard Baker Jr. saw a need to expand the airport in the 1980s; to bring new life to the area where his small hometown of Huntsville, Tennessee  is located  (which he often described as the center of the Universe). Out of respect for Senator Baker, President Ronald Regan approved the expansion of the airport. The senator served as Ronald Reagan’s Chief of Staff and was highly regarded for his efforts in Washington, as well as his efforts to preserve the Big South Fork recreation area.

Today, you’ll notice that the main terminal of the airport is named after Senator Baker in honor of his great contribution to this once rural corner of Tennessee.

“The Scott County Airport has made it possible for me to live in Huntsville and to carry on my activities across the state, the nation and around the world. I have based a plane there for most of the last 40 years…it is an invaluable asset to our community.”
