Attraction details
Owner description: The Airport in the Sky occupies a 1,602-foot-tall mountaintop at the center of the Catalina Island, 10 miles from the city of Avalon. It's a great destination by tour or shuttle bus, bicycle, on foot whether hiking the Trans Catalina Trail or walking over from Black Jack, or of course, via private or chartered small plane. Its single 3,250-foot-long runway was constructed by blasting and leveling two adjacent peaks, then using the resulting debris to fill in the gaps.The image is of a T-34 Beechcraft that flew in to participate in one of the Airport in the Sky's monthly Aeroclub Fly-In Days.

From Avalon to the Airport in the Sky...a fantastic drive awaits the adventurer...the scenes of Old California unfold before Your eyes....even the Buffalo are friendly...and the cookies are unbelieveable!! The Buildings and the Tower are something out of a Sky King Movie. A Must See...Must Visit Catalina activity!!

Great history displays of the airport celebrating its 100th year. Don't forget about their World Famous Cookies.
