David's Airport (FAA LID: 9C2), also known as David's Field,[2] is a privately owned, public-use airport located in Branch County, Michigan, United States. It is two miles (3 km) south of the central business district of Athens, a village in Calhoun County. David's Field was built shortly after World War II by John Broberg and named to honor his twin brother who was killed on Okinawa. John operated the field intermittently into the 1970s where he conducted flight training and parachute practice operations.
