Seaside Municipal Airport , is a General aviation airport located one mile Northeast of Seaside in Clatsop County, Oregon, USA. It is owned and operated as a municipal airport by the city of Seaside. It is the closest airport to Seaside , Gearhart , and Cannon Beach . The airport has one asphalt runway, a parallel taxiway, a parking apron with space for up to 20 aircraft, and a 5-bay hangar building.
The airport property was originally owned by Don Inman, who maintained and operated the grass airstrip known as Seaside-Gearhart airport from 1946 through the 1950s. By 1960, the post-World War II general aviation boom was well under way, and state and federal governments were financing small airport development under the FAA's Airport Improvement Program. Members of the community convinced the State of Oregon to purchase the airport and install a paved runway, taxiways and parking ramp. The Oregon Department of Aviation operated the airport as Seaside State Airport until 1990, at which time it was chosen as one of several airports targeted for divestiture by the state, and subsequently deeded to the city of Seaside.
