Collegedale Municipal Airport (ICAO: KFGU, FAA LID: FGU, formerly 3M3) is a city-owned, public-use airport located two nautical miles (3.7 km) southeast of the central business district of the City of Collegedale, in Hamilton County, Tennessee, United States.

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned FGU by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA (which assigned FGU to Fangatau in French Polynesia).

The airport does not provide scheduled commercial service. However, charter service is provided by Aviation Specialists, Inc, a private company located at the airport, that offers flight instruction and a banner towing operation. Collegedale Municipal is one of the busiest general aviation airports in the state of Tennessee with an average of 120 aircraft stationed there. It won the Tennessee Aeronautics Commission's "Airport of the Year" award in 2003.

History

Begun as a flying club in 1965 by pilot and mechanic John Linn and Ellsworth McKee—son of the founders of the McKee Foods Corporation, the Collegedale Airport was originally a 1,200-foot (370 m) grass strip on a farm. It was purchased by pilot-entrepreneur Aubrey Kinzer in 1969 and turned into a commercial venture with a flight school, rental aircraft, and aircraft maintenance. In 1972, the City of Collegedale obtained the property, and over the years the asphalt paved runway has been extended to 4,700 feet (1400 m) from its nominal 3,500-foot (1150 m) length and widened to 75 feet (23 m) with a parallel taxiway. In 1995, the airport was rededicated and renamed Linn Field in honor of John Linn. Renovations and additions to the terminal, lobby, and Fixed Base Operations (FBO) office were completed in 2003.

Collegedale Municipal Airport covers an area of 145 acres (59 ha) at an elevation of 860 feet (262 m) above mean sea level.
