Sedona Arizona Airport & Arrivals Guide

Located 500 feet above town, the local airport area is probably most famous, among Sedona AZ vacation lovers, for its mesa overlook. It's a popular sunset viewing spot with wide vistas of Thunder Mountain, Snoopy Rock, Capitol Butte, and Coffee Pot Rock. There's also a mini-hiking spot that leads to a major Sedona vortex.

The Sedona Arizona Airport, itself, functions as a facility that serves small aircraft activity, mostly for tours and also for a few affluent and adventuresome private jet-setters. There are no commercial public flights into Sedona.

The "U.S.S. Sedona" aka Sedona Airport & SEZ

When folks noticed the resemblance of the Sedona Airport mesa to an aircraft carrier, it got the nickname, "U.S.S. Sedona." And, since it's one of the most (THE most?) scenic airports in the America, lots of pilots agree… the log book must included, "SEZ."

Flying into Sedona is a delightful experience. The airport itself offers a 100' wide runway, plenty of "tie downs," hangar availability, a fully functional gps landing system, and good weather reporting. Expect good fuel services, and well maintained taxi ways and runways too.

For more info, contact Mac McCall, the airport manager. He's accessible, knowledgeable, and helpful.
