Stinson Airport is the second oldest continuously operated airport in the United States. It is the general aviation traffic overflow airport for the San Antonio International Airport. Located on the south side of San Antonio, Stinson Airport is just north of the new Toyota plant and just south of downtown. This airport is ideal for general aviation aircraft and private pilots seeking less crowded airport traffic. The Air Force uses Stinson for pilot training with Air Force trainers using the runway for touch and go practice throughout the day. Stinson is said to be the birthplace of military aviation. The airport is named for the Stinson family, who founded the airport in the early 1900's. The Stinson family members were all pilots and the Airport is aptly named after them. Many people believe the name is in honor of the Stinson airplane but in fact, this San Antonio airport is named for a flying family of pilots. Stinson is also the home of the Texas Air Museum.
