See the Real "Planes" in Action
Chandler Municipal Airport is capturing the excitement as an interest in aviation soars along with the movie "Planes" opening in theaters on August 9.
As one of the busiest general aviation airports in the nation, Chandler Municipal is a great please for enthusiasts to see their favorite airplanes in action. We average more than 500 operations (take offs and landings) a day, so visitors rarely have long to wait before viewing a helicopter or plane in the air.
The airport is secure facility with limited access. However, we've created a map of great viewing locations on the airport, including a picnic area just outside the fence, and on the property at Hangar Cafe, which also offers a second-floor observation deck. The Hangar Cafe has long been a popular hangout for pilots, and has turned into a favorite spot for anyone who loves airplanes. It is open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is located on the Chandler Airport property at 1725 E. Ryan Road.
For the most activity, airport officials recommend the early morning hours when temperatures are cooler. Please don't hesitate to call with any questions, 480-782-3540.
