Brown Field Municipal Airport (SDM) is located just 1.5 miles to the north of the U.S.-Mexican border and roughly 13 miles southeast of downtown San Diego. It traces its roots back to 1918 when the army created an aerial gunnery and aerobatics school on the property. However, today, the Brown Field Municipal Airport is a general aviation airport, which sees a variety of aircrafts, from private, corporate, and cargo, to fire rescues, and air ambulances, among others. It’s now considered a reliever airport, which means it allows aircraft originally directed toward nearby airports to land on site.
