The Collegedale Municipal Airport has been awarded a $1.28 million grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation’s Aeronautics Economic Development Fund for an expansion project. Pictured, left to right, are Collegedale Municipal Airport Director Ryan Byford, Collegedale City Manager Wayon Hines, State Rep. Greg Vital (District 29) and Collegedale Mayor Morty Lloyd.
If your aircraft has need of airframe or power plant repair, there is a qualified mechanic here on the field that can address any issues that you may have, from routine maintenance to major repairs.
Flight Planning / Pilots Lounge
For your convenience, we offer a computer for filing flight plans or checking on vital weather information. If you have your own laptop or tablet, there is also free WiFi. There is a conference room / pilot lounge that is available for meetings or if you just need a place to relax. There are also vending machines if you need a quick snack or a cold soft drink.
Maybe your meeting is not held here in the airport’s facilities or you would like to go into town for lunch. For far less than the cost of a rental car or cab fare you can have access to our crew car. The car may not be kept overnight; however, we would be glad to use it to take you to your hotel.
Training / Certification
Our little airport offers a relaxing environment that is perfect for beginners or experienced pilots alike.

Excellent facilities. A fireplace in the lobby is a welcomed spot to ward off the chill of a frosty morning. Everything is well maintained and decorated with numerous aircraft models suspended from the ceiling and pictures adorning the walls. A real pick me up is Rusty who hasn’t sniffed a hand he wouldn’t lick.
