Coulter Field (IATA: CFD, ICAO: KCFD, FAA LID: CFD) is a public airport three miles northeast of Bryan, in Brazos County, Texas.[1] It is owned by the City of Bryan[1] which is part of the Bryan-College Station area. The airport is used for general aviation.


Coulter Field has a long history with sport parachuting, with parachute jumps having been conducted since the mid-1950s. Ags Over Texas (AOT) was the home of the Texas A&M University skydiving team until its closure in 1999. In March 2002, Skydive Aggieland opened and is the current home of the Texas A&M University skydiving club. Texas Governor Rick Perry completed a successful static-line skydive at AOT while he was attending Texas A&M University in the 1970s and former President George H. W. Bush (41) completed a tandem skydive at Coulter Field in cooperation with Skydive Aggieland and the Golden Knights a day prior to completing his last jump at his Presidential Library on Texas A&M University main campus.


Coulter Field covers 256 acres (104 ha) at an elevation of 367 feet (112 m). Its runway, 15/33, is 4,000 by 75 feet (1,219 x 23 m).[1][2] A former turf runway, 17/35 is closed.

In the year ending April 8, 2023, the airport had 16,200 general aviation aircraft operations, average 44 per day. 69 aircraft were then based at the airport: 56 single-engine, 9 multi-engine, 2 jet, and 2 helicopter.[1]
