San Miguel’s Airport
There is an airport in San Miguel de Allende for small aircraft, but it doesn’t have customs. Flights arriving from the US will be directed to one of the other airports.

This was posted on one of San Miguel’s help lists.

The airport runway has been in operation since 1937. The original runway was approximately 2500 feet in length, pad to pad, but presently, fence to fence is one mile long by 75 feet wide with compass directions of 09 and 27. Elevation is roughly 6671 feet according to the Red Book issued by the Baja Bush Pilots.

For you people out there with a GPS, the coordinates are: Lat: 20 54' 26", Long: 100 41' 54". The IATA call letters are SMA. There is no ICAO designation at this time. It is a dirt and grass strip, open to the flying public, from small single engine aircraft to light twins.

There are presently four hangars on the airport proper housing a Piper Cherokee, a Cessna 182, a Cessna 206 and three ultralights.

The airport has a contingent of soldiers on duty checking passengers of aircraft arriving and departing.

The directions to the airport are simple...Take the Dr. Mora road past the Administration building after a turn around the Glorieta, proceed about one-quarter mile to the driveways of two federal buildings on the right. Turn in at the driveways and bear left onto a dirt road running parallel to the Dr. Mora road. At the end of this short dirt road, you will arrive at the end of the runway. If you proceed up the runway, you will come to the soldier's out post where you will be stopped and asked to state your business.

And lastly, anyone interested in learning to fly will soon have an opportunity when a friend off mine gets the approval he has been seeking to open a flying school here.
