Airport Information

Welcome to Cottonwood, Arizona and the Cottonwood Municipal Airport (P52).  We are located in the Verde Valley of Yavapai County on the east side of Mingus Mountain.  The Valley is 26 miles in diameter and the best way out is up!  Climb-out provides amazing views of the Mogollon Rim and the San Francisco Peaks.  Three other airports in the Valley area are Sedona (KSEZ public) and Rimrock and Montezuma Heights, both private.

The elevation at P52 is 3,550 feet ASL;  Runway: 14 – 32, length 4,250 feet.  Calm wind runway is 32.  Skydiving is a regular activity here, hence  runway 14 is left pattern and 32 is right pattern to keep traffic on the east side of the airport.

Expect warmer temperatures than Flagstaff and cooler than Phoenix, and reasonable fuel prices.
