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.
