Welcome to Collegedale Municipal Airport
Originally known as Collegedale Air Park, the airport has been in operation since its established days as a private airport in 1965. At that time, Collegedale Airport was mainly used for flying club activities and only had a 2,600-foot turf runway. The airport was licensed for public use in 1970 and three years later the City of Collegedale began operating the field as a municipal airport. Collegedale Airport has undergone many upgrades over the years including having its runway paved, and multiple hangars built. A new terminal building was built in 2002 and the runway was lengthened to 5,003 feet in 2008.
Now known as Collegedale Municipal Airport / Linn-Kinzer Field, the main operations include flight training, aircraft maintenance, and sport aviation; we also accommodate many business, corporate, and charter operations. We offer a friendly, convenient alternative to the “big airport” hustle and bustle with Avgas, and Jet-A fuel available, and we never charge a ramp fee.
Collegedale is also a great place to come visit if you just want to watch airplanes. Gaze into the wild blue yonder, observe while pilots sharpen their flying skills, get a close up look at an airplane, or maybe even take a ride. Personal tours for schools, churches, and other groups are welcomed and can be scheduled by contacting the Director of Airport Operations at 423-468-1988.
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. Unique terrain features and the laid back atmosphere of a non-towered airport make Collegedale an excellent place to learn to fly or to stay current. Contact us to find out more about what training options might work for you.
