AOPA sticks up for San Diego's Brown Field
General aviation airports are critical transportation resources that can't be left to deteriorate and close from neglect. That's why AOPA believes support for Brown Field Municipal Airport, located along the U.S.-Mexico border in San Diego County, is crucial. "The airport is underdeveloped. It needs a new FBO and local hotel, and it needs basic improvements to hangars and tiedown areas," said Bill Dunn, AOPA vice president of airports, who visited the field last week during an advocacy outreach effort to San Diego city and county officials. "With some work, it could serve as a key facility for pilots flying to and from Mexico." Read more on AOPA Online.
