History
Ronaldsway was first used as an airfield in 1928 with passenger services to the UK starting in 1933, operated by Blackpool and West Coast Air Services (later West Coast Air Services).

The airfield came under Royal Air Force control at the outbreak of the Second World War. Known as RAF Ronaldsway, it was one of the few airfields that continued operating civilian flights throughout the wartime period. The airfield was used by No 1 GDGS (Ground Defence and Gunnery School) operating Westland Wallace aircraft, the drogues from these aircraft being fired on from gun emplacements on St Michael's Isle (Fort Island) and Santon Head. RAF operations continued until 1943 when the airfield was handed over to the Admiralty for further development as a Fleet Air Arm training station.

Now a naval air station, RNAS Ronaldsway, the airport was taken out of commission in 1943 for almost twelve months of extensive development undertaken by John Laing & Son. By the summer of 1944 the airfield had evolved from a grass landing area with a few hangars to a four runway airfield with the infrastructure to house and operate three training squadrons using Barracuda torpedo bombers. Commissioned as HMS Urley (Manx for Eagle) by the Admiralty on 21 June 1944, the airfield's main role was that of a torpedo working-up station. The base was transferred to 'Care and Maintenance' in January 1946.

After the War, the airport reverted to solely civilian flying and the Admiralty sold the airport to the Isle of man Government in 1948. In March 2000, there was a major runway extension and runway resurfacing. Following the completion of the runway extension project the largest aircraft that can operate fully at Ronaldsway is the Boeing 757.
