As Gillespie (SEE) lies 8-nm east of Montgomery (MYF), the marine layer generally clears at SEE earlier, and it's less windy than Ramona (RNM),13-nm north. Parallel East-West runways, and a North/South RWY-17/35 make for a lot of pilot training and activity almost every day. Easy access from I-8, SR-52 and SR-67 make Gillespie Field a great choice for General Aviation!
SEE is home to two Garmin & Avidyne avionics shops; Neal Aviation and Instrument Overhaul, the San Diego Air Museum Annex and manufacturers including Trio Avionics, Grove Aircraft, Whirlwind Propellers, Redline Towbars, Flint Aero and Hammerhead Aviation.
