Comment "airport" on San Gil Airport, Colombia

Picture of Fredg


Leaving town on a rugged dirt road you are surprised by a nice paved road leading you to a vacant 'control tower'. Adjoining the tower is a tie down area, and when I was there you needed to bring ropes to secure your plane. The paved runway is about 5000 feet long and in very good condition. There were a few large rocks on the runway, so if you visit, be sure to walk the runway and clear it. I will visit the airport again early in 2009 and I will bring back a current status report along with photos.
