Arnold Peik was a barnstormer who opened an airport named after himself sometime in the 1930s. This airport was located by Mission Bay in San Diego. The airport operated until sometime in the 1960s and was one of the largest privately owned ones in the area. This interview will shed light not only on the history of the airport, but also give more details about the history of private aviation in Southern California during the period of the 1930s to the 1960s.
