Brown Field Municipal Airport is located in the Otay Mesa neighborhood of San Diego, California, 13 mi (20.9 km) southeast of Downtown San Diego and named in honor of United States Navy Commander Melville S. Brown, who was killed in an airplane crash in 1936. Its primary runway is 7972 ft (2429.9 m) long.

Its FAA/IATA airport code of SDM probably comes from "San Diego Municipal". Formerly a Naval Auxiliary Air Station (NAAS), it is now a port of entry from Mexico. It is sometimes staffed by the U.S. Customs Service, but only upon the request of incoming pilots to the FAA.
