Great airport and very good FBO. The runway is a little hard to find among the bluffs, but if you can see the golf course immediately to the north (it's the only green thing around) you're in the right place.
The new airport is huge, and great. Very good FBO, Above View Jet Center.
It's not that bad, even for a flat lander. Land rwy 3, even if there's a slight tailwind. Fly the VASI, which will put you a little long and keep you on glide slope. Just flre and let the rwy come up to meet you!
Land rwy 16; take off rwy 34 - there's no go-around because of the mesa just south of the airport, so you need to nail the landing first time. The runway slopes upwards towards the south which makes it easier.
One of the best! Really great service - had the rental car next to the p[lane on the ramp almost before I cut the engine. Buy your fuel at the self serve pump; it's at least a dollar per gallon cheaper. $6 a night tie down charge reasonable. SAF must be the only adobe style control tower in the world!
Nice new facility opened in 2011
I was coming in at night and the airport is very hard to find among all the other light clutter. A very patient tower controller turned ry30 up full and turned all the other runway lights off to make it easier to find.
Great airport restaurant
