MTN airport

The view: Martin State Airport (MTN), Middle River ,Maryland

The pilot: David Smith

The airplane: Cessna 172M

The mission: Flying to the Eastern Shore of Maryland, class delta transition through MTN

The memory: I started my Private Pilot journey at this airport at Middle River Aviation. In the spring I did a fly over of the airport, doing a transition over the class delta airspace due to the DC SFRA and Aberdeen Proving Grounds restricted area. And then three months later I became a one tenth owner of a Cessna 172SP hangared at this same airport. I had no idea at the time that it would become my home airport as an airplane owner.

    I learned to fly at KMTN in 1977 when Coleman Aviation was in business. Having that long, wide runway was great, but the first time we landed at a 2500 foot runway in the C-150 (N76CA) I was certain we would run off the end! Great memories.
