History of Aspen-Pitkin County Regional Airport
Sardy Field – more commonly known as the Aspen Airport is only 3 miles away from Aspen, Colorado. Five out of the ten aircraft flights operating from this airport are private jets. Night landings are not allowed by the airport due to noise restrictions. In 2011, the authorities successfully managed to extend the existing runway. Furthermore, specific aircraft exceeding 0.1 million pounds of maximum weight cannot operate at Aspen-Pitkin Airport. Founded in 1946 as a gravel-based airstrip, the airport has developed phenomenally over the years.
Aspen-Pitkin Regional Airport Terminal
The Aspen Airport terminal was regarded as the first building in the US to adopt solar technology upon construction in 1976. It has now expanded by an extra 26,500 sq ft to blossom into a versatile facility with food shops, gift shops, and car rental services. Atlantic Aviation is the FBO at Aspen Airport responsible for handling, fuel, and airplane maintenance.
