The airports cargo carrying capacity is minimal. Incoming freight movements are currently two APA cargo flights per week and goods are usually less than that carried on a single pallet. There is a good condition serviceable forklift that is available for unloading so freight movement capacity will only be restricted by this. There is however no storage at the airport other than existing hangers.

There are no known measures to make further improvements to the airport

Runways

Runways and hardstand have recently been upgraded in the last 5 years and as such are in good condition. All surfaces are asphalt and daily inspections are undertaken. There are no apparent issues which could affect future use.
