CA66 Monterey Bay Academy Airport
CA66 - Monterey Bay Academy Airport
The only airstrip on the California coast of its kind, is right here at AirSpace Integration. Nowhere else can you fly along the ocean, land on the rolling bluffs and walk to the beach.
The CA66 Monterey Bay Academy Airport is an active airfield with a 2400-ft long grass runway overlooking the picturesque Monterey Bay. The airfield is a place for people to land, enjoy a beautiful ocean view off the end of the runway, have lunch at a picnic table under the pines, and meander along a private beach.
History of Monterey Bay Academy Airport
From the mid-‘80s until 2013 the airstrip was used very infrequently. It wasn’t until May of 2013 that a volunteer aviation group, Ocean Shore Aviation, restored the worn-out dirt strip. The group converted it from a dirt runway to beautiful grass landing strip. The team also secured a parking/tie-down area (paved with concrete) and added a picnic area situated within walking distance to the parking/tie-down area overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
