Airport Overview

Sapwuahfik Civil Airfield is located in Pohnpei State on the reef adjacent to Ngatik Island at the western extreme of Sapwuahfik Atoll, roughly 96 nautical miles southwest of Pohnpei Island. Due to coastal erosion, the airstrip is now separated from the island by about 20 meters and passengers are ferried back and forth by boat. In order to utilize the airstrip, operators must apply for the appropriate flight permits with the F.S.M. Division of Civil Aviation. Once approval has been granted, the operator can contact the Pohnpei Port Authority Airport Manager to make arrangements for on-call personnel to be present at the airfield.

 Communication is by way of CTAF 123.6 (COMS provided by Pohnpei Radio)
