Stevens Field Airport
Archuleta County’s Stevens Field has seen a great deal of improvement over the past few years. In 2006, workers widened and resurfaced Runway 10/19 and built a new fixed base operations building at midfield. Since, new hangars have appeared, an Automated Weather Observation System (AWOS) has been installed, and the airport identifier became KPSO. A partial parallel taxiway now links the north end of the runway with midfield, and a two-mile interior road allows fuel tankers and other vehicular traffic the freedom of movement on airport grounds without using the runway.
In keeping with its commitment to Archuleta County and Stevens Field, the Federal Aviation Administration promptly completed and published a GPS instrument approach for pilot use during nighttime and low-visibility landings. The FAA has funded 95 percent of the various improvement projects in the past three years, while the Colorado Department of Transportation-Aeronautics Division and the county each contributed 2.5 percent.
The fully-lit asphalt runway is now 100 feet wide and 8,100 feet long. Located just three miles west of downtown Pagosa Springs, its aircraft weight capacities are 70,000 pounds for dual-wheel gear and 59,000 pounds for single-wheel gear. Flight safety at the high-altitude, general aviation airport is reinforced with a Precision Approach Path Indicator system.
For specific airport management questions or concerns, call the airport manager at (970) 731-3060. The AWOS system is available on frequency 127.17, or by phone at (970) 731-0365.
For aviation services or to visit Avjet Corporation, the fixed base operator, travel three miles west of town, then approximately one mile northwest on Piedra Road. Turn right (northeast) on Cloman Boulevard and proceed to 61 Aviation Court.
Pilot supplies, automobile rentals, a flight service telephone, restrooms, vending machines, catering service, coffee and a lounge area are provided at the FBO.
In the heated hangar, light aircraft maintenance services and a mechanic are available weekdays, and a full line of aviation oils and supplies, including 100 low-lead and Jet-A rated fuels, are also at hand.
