Monterey Bay Academy Airfield is back and better than ever! Located four miles west of Watsonville on a bluff overlooking Monterey Bay, the airfield has reopened to all pilots after over a decade of highly restricted use. The runway has been significantly improved and is now covered with grass. There is expanded parking and a picnic area right on the bluff.
Ocean Shore Aviation would like to remind people that this is a private airstrip, is open to people who are in good standing, in hopes of providing an airstrip for pilots and their friends to come and share in many good times. Things are coming along, but they're doing it in a low-key fashion. They just want pilots to come and be a part of their pilot community. Check out their landing restrictions prior to use. Very limited Saturday operations!
