In a recent study complied by the Airport Journal, an industry leading publication, Montgomery Field (KMYF) in San Diego, CA was named the nations 11th busiest general aviation airport in the country, beating out other airports such as Orlando International, Dallas Love Field, and Chicago Midway. While many other airports decreased in operations, KMYF actually increased by 2% from last year, easily beating out the national average decrease of -6%.
KMYF is home to many private, government, business and general aviation aircraft, creating a diverse airport environment which is one of the reasons why Coast Flight Academy established at KMYF. Furthermore, we are able to utilize the busy airspace for more comprehensive training. It is widely acknowledged that students training at busy airports are better prepared for flying in general. KMYF’s active environment is used to teach students how to handle a real world situations, meanwhile, simultaneously building their confidence and decision making skills. Unlike many schools, Coast’s instructors welcome busy airspace because we know it will challenge our students and prepare them for real world flying after their flight training.
