San Juan

AAB operations in San Juan was adjacent to the Isla Grande Airport  and  originally  next to the Naval Air Station (which included the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station). The location gave AAB another downtown to downtown terminal with ready made water ramps. The old Navy hangar was perfect for the larger flying boats (VS-44 & S-25).
