Williams Gateway Airport is
located in Mesa, Arizona. A short drive, Southeast from Phoenix. It is
on the site of the former Williams Air Force Base. It officially opened
for business in 1994. Numerous improvements are currently under way.The
airport is used
mainly for flight testing and some maintenance by several businesses,
as well as flight training by several airlines. Increasingly, cargo
aircraft can be seen at Gateway, with the auto industry shipping
automotive parts from here in particular. On occasion, some other
interesting aircraft may be seen here as well. Boeing and Bombardier
have recently (and in the past) sent test aircraft to this airport.
Also, Native American Air Ambulance maintains a base here on the
airport. Although you probably won't see a lot at "Willie", if you're
in the Phoenix area a side trip to this airport may produce some
interesting sightings. A limited number of airline flights can now be
found at IWA / AZA with various aircraft types.
