Boutique Air has been endorsed by City Council to provide commercial air service to Cortez.  Their tentative start date is October 1, 2016, however this may change while we await final approval from the Department of Transportation in Washington, D.C., who administers the Essential Air Service program.  

Great Lakes Aviation will continue to serve the Cortez market until Boutique is up and flying.  

A full service Fixed Base Operator (FBO), Cortez Flying Service, can be reached at 970-565-3721. The FBO is located at midfield featuring Jet-A and 100LL fuels.

The runway is a porous friction course surface 100 feet wide by 7,205 feet long; with pilot controlled medium intensity lighting. Unicom frequency is 122.80, monitored by the FBO during daylight hours. There are three wind socks, one at each end and at runway center; all three are lighted. A full length parallel taxiway with four runway connectors provides maximum pilot convenience. Aircraft needing fuel beyond the regular hours should make arrangements with the flying service before arrival. The overhead view of the airport is a spectacular sight to see.
