We’ve worked hard getting Monterey Bay Academy Airfield started.
Will you help us keep it going?

Ocean Shore Aviation is a grass roots (yes literally) organization that exists through your donations of materials, time and money. Thanks to all who are helping this happen!

The new wind socks are in place at each end of the field. The ditch digger has bumped and chattered its way down mostly straight lines on each side of the landing field. The pipes and sprinklers have been laid and the irrigation system is complete. The grass has been replanted and is now making all your landings look good. We want to thank all of you for helping to pay the insurance and rent!

Your Donations Go Towards

  • Liability insurance
  • Rent
  • Water usage
  • Airport mowing
  • Aviation Scholarships
  • …and that’s it! Your donations are used strictly for airport operation and aviation scholarships.

Donations are essential to keeping Monterey Bay Academy Airfield open!

If we can’t make our quarterly insurance payment, the airfield must close to the public.

Please drop a donation into the drop box on the bulletin board at the airfield, or send one to:
