A private airfield was first established at the site in 1909 and it was requisitioned for military use in 1914. During World War Two the station served as the airfield for the adjacent Castle Bromwich Aircraft Factory. On completion the aircraft were towed across the road from the factory to the airfield, were tested and delivered to the RAF. The factory produced over 11,000 Spitfires and around 300 Lancasters.
