The site opened as a civilian airfield in 1933 but was requisitioned in 1941 for Ferry Command and called RAF Trebelzue. During 1942-43 the station was rebuilt and renamed RAF St Mawgan. From June 1943 the station was used by the United States Army Air Force for ferrying aircraft from the USA although RAF Ferry Command continued to use the station. The runway is now Newquay Airport but the RAF still occupies part of the original station.
