    Atlantic City puts Bader Field up for sale again

    March 16, 2016

    NEW JERSEY -- The first aviation facility in the world to be called an "airport" helped develop Atlantic City as a casino mecca, and now the resort town is turning to Bader Field to help relieve some of its crushing debt by offering it for a minimum $150 million bid. Bader Field, which closed in September 2006 after 96 years of aviation use, is also where the Civil Air Patrol was founded shortly before the Pearl Harbor attack in 1941. The 143-acre site was home to CAP’s first Coastal Patrol base, where civilian pilots launched East Coast flights in search of German U-boats during the earliest days of World War II.
