Montgomery Field is a public airport located in San Diego, California, United States, six miles (10 km) north of the central business district (CBD) of San Diego. The airport covers 456 acre (184.5 ha) and has three runways and two helipads. The runway configuration is 28 Right/10 Left-28 Left/10 Right parallels with Runway 5/23 crossing at midfield.

The Federal Aviation Administration has maintained an Air Traffic Control Tower at the airport since 1965. It is located on the north side of the airport, just east of Taxiway C and Runway 23/5.

It is named for John J. Montgomery, an aviation pioneer who in 1883 made the first manned, controlled, heavier-than-air flights in the Otay Mesa area of San Diego. Montgomery Field is one of the nation's busiest airports for small aircraft and has a number of flying clubs, flight schools, plus business turboprops and jets based there. San Diego FD bases aircraft there. King Schools, Inc. is based nearby and their aircraft are based at the airport. Since Summer 2009, King Schools (in conjunction with Cessna) has been flight testing the prototype Cessna 162 Skycatcher Light-Sport Aircraft at or around the airport.
