Recommended Posts

Telluride Regional Airport (KTEX) is a public airport six miles west of Telluride, in San Miguel County, Colorado. It is owned by the Telluride Regional Airport Authority. At an elevation of 9,078 feet (2,767 meters) above sea level, it is the highest commercial airport in North America with scheduled p[Mod - Happy Thoughts]enger flights.

 

Telluride Regional Airport covers 542 acres (219 ha) and has one runway, 9/27, 6,911 by 100 feet (2,106 by 30 meters). The runway is on a plateau and still dips slightly in the center, although the dip was more pronounced prior to a renovation in 2009. It can be a challenging but beautiful approach for pilots. In the past during winter months, about 20% of the scheduled commuter airline flights were diverting to other airports because of abruptly adverse landing conditions. This is not unusual since other mountain airports like Sun Valley have similar statistics.

 

When flying to the Telluride Regional Airport, pilots must be aware of unique issues impacting the airfield including high terrain exceeding 14,000 feet (4,300 m), as well as the airport's location on a plateau with a thousand-foot (300 m) drop to the San Miguel River below.

 

Canadian Xpress would like to invite all pilots to join us on Saturday, March 28th between 10h00edt (14h00z) & 13h00edt (17h00z) and between 21h00edt (Sunday 01h00z) & 24h00edt (Sunday 04h00z) for our March 2020 fly-in where we will fly from Jackson Hole (KJAC) to Telluride (KTEX).

 

This is an open invitation to all pilots no matter what your flying experience to attend this Canadian Xpress event that will be flown on the VATSIM network.

 

One lucky Canadian Xpress pilot will win:

• Any Real Flight Shop Product (Maximum $50.00 USD) from:
