Quoting jpetekYXMD80 (Reply 1): Right. Airport in the Sky is the only airport. This is CIB. The only Sky Harbor I know is PHX.
Thanks for the info.....you do realize I didnt just pull the other codes out of thin air, I hope. Plus, I am referring to 1987 and looking at a 1987 OAG that lists FOUR different airport codes under Catalina Island.

Yeah, I guess CIB and AVX are different codes for the same airport and the others must be/been heliports or something? Not sure, but I think the current airport is the only landing strip theres been on the island, challenging place to build an airport.

Quoting Tomassjc (Reply 5): AVX is where the seaplane base was (is?) at Avalon. Gruman Goose (Catalina Airlines, Catalina Seaplanes and later Golden West) service from LGB and San Pedro lasted until the late 70s I believe.
AVX is the airport on the hill, whenever we get guys looking for flight following that is where they are going.
