Brown Field

Brown Field Final


Otay Mesa – 1424 Continental St


Brown Field is located in Otay Mesa. On both sides of the long airport runway a new developer will use open space to add aviation facilities and basic business services. New hangars will be built on the site with a general aviation facility and jet and helicopter facilities. More rows for planes and an aviation nexus will make the airport a better fit for a higher count of regular flights and corporate and international travel. Visitors that take free time to dine or rest will find a restaurant and a hotel on site. Once work moves ahead, the construction will take 5 years to finish the first phase and 30 years to build a stand out airport that can handle the plane traffic and visitor counts that are expected to increase in future years, and still be a relief airport for Lindbergh Field.
