As of June 6, 2018, Taxiway Alpha has been re-opened!  We appreciate everyone's patience while this critical reconstruction project was completed.

ON A SEPARATE NOTE:  You may have noticed that there is a fair amount of helicopter activity taking place on the North Ramp.  There are three Chinook helicopters as well as a variety of other equipment working the 416 Fire that will be utilizing the North Ramp for parking.  In addition to the Chinooks, we have a barricaded area on ramp that will be utilized on a temporary basis for smaller firefighting helicopters.    We have chosen parking positions that will not impede aircraft access to/from your hangars.  Please continue to use caution when taxiing aircraft around the helicopters and their support equipment.

Questions or concerns should be directed to:  Oren Fallon, Operations Manager, (970) 382-6068

GA BADGES:  Unescorted access to airport grounds is not allowed unless you have a current General Access (GA) Badge.  Please ensure that you renew your badge BEFORE it expires.  Application forms are available in the Administration Office at the main terminal, and at ARFF (970) 759-4342).  Please refer to this page on our website:  (link to Security Badge page)

  Airports are required to keep an updated list of all hangar owners and tenants, including their aircraft information.  Please notify Airport Administration immediately of any changes at your hangar.

  • Hangar owners must contact Airport Administration when selling or subleasing a hangar, to complete paperwork for us, (970) 382-6051.

 Please ensure that your liability insurance on your hangar is kept up-to-date, and that a copy of the current certificate is sent to Airport Administration each year when the policy is renewed.

  • This insurance must include fire coverage.  Please refer to your hangar lease for more information.

  • The City of Durango and La Plata County jointly own the airport and grounds.  As such, both entities must be listed as “additional insureds” on your hangar policy.  You may have your insurance agent contact Airport Administration at (970) 382-6051 for pertinent information.

We appreciate hearing about maintenance issues needing to be addressed.  Hangar owners also are responsible for some of the maintenance around their property.  Please feel free to contact us if you notice any areas which need some attention, and we can help determine how they should be addressed.
