New Airport


#1

Just caught this.

With AIRAC Cycle 1101 coming into effect today, the St. George Airport (KSGU) has closed. In its place, a new St. George Municipal Airport (KDXZ) has opened west of St. George.

Here’s the current NOTAM for KSGU:

01/007 - AD CLSD PERM EXEC PPR 435-627-4080 OR 435-703-0805
SEE DXZ. WIE UNTIL UFN. CREATED: 13 JAN 15:37 2011

And from the AF/D:

AIRPORT REMARKS: Attended 1300-0600Z. The old St George Muni
Arpt (SGU) is being replaced by the effective 01/13/2011. New St
George Muni Arpt (DXZ). PAPI Rwy 01 and Rwy 19 OTS indef.
ACTIVATE HIRL Rwy 01-19 and REIL Rwy 01-CTAF. PAPI Rwy 01
and Rwy 19 opr continuously.

Current data here still shows SGU as active, and it may be good to have that updated so that pilots don’t land at the wrong airport.

BL.
