Terminal Building Update

posted May 1, 2021, 2:17 PM by Los Alamos Avgas   [ updated May 1, 2021, 2:19 PM ]

The Los Alamos Airport Terminal Building will continue to be closed to the public. The County is taking advantage of the terminal building being cleared out to make some improvements by painting the interior and move some of the equipment typically inside of a modular office to a more secure location within the building. This equipment controls the AWOS system and the Runway lighting. This “sprucing up” will continue through May.

Pilots can now access the building to access the restrooms. The usual “Flight Planning” desk and such is still in storage as we await the interior work to be completed.

The work to replace the roof began a week later due to the asbestos remediation. It is anticipated that the work will continue for another couple of weeks, due to some unsettled weather. While the Completion date is June 4, it is anticipated that the work will be completed prior to this date.

Pilot and aviation related questions please call Geoff Rodgers, Airport Manager at 505-709-8687 or send an email to
Questions/comments related to the project call Wayne Kohlrust with the Public Works Department at 505-709-0510.

Terminal Building Closed: April 13-16, 2021

posted Apr 12, 2021, 8:09 PM by Los Alamos Avgas

The Los Alamos Airport Terminal Building will be closed to the public and pilots April 13-16 as crews work on flooring abatement.  Containment will be set up and cannot be breached until the work is completed and subsequently cleared. 


The Terminal Building will be receiving a new roof beginning on April 13 as well. Roof Care anticipates this work will occur for approximately 2 weeks.  The roof work should not impact access to the building.

North Vehicle Gate Closed: April 15-29, 2019

posted Apr 13, 2019, 12:29 PM by Los Alamos Avgas

The North Vehicle Gate (adjacent to the terminal) will be closed, April 15-29, 2019 in conjunction with the fence project.  During this time, please note the following:

  • Use the South Vehicle Gate and perimeter road behind the blast fence to gain access to the North Ramps and hangars; DO NOT CROSS THE RUNWAY.
  • The South Vehicle Gate is now set up for free exit (no pin code required); however, the in-ground loop detector is only 4’ from the gate – so you will need to carefully pull up close to the gate and be patient; it takes a few seconds for the gate to activate.
  • The pedestrian gate adjacent to the terminal (south wall) will be operational.


Please contact the Airport Manager if you have any comments, questions or concerns.

National Defense Airspace

posted Aug 30, 2018, 10:06 AM by Los Alamos Avgas   [ updated Aug 31, 2018, 1:25 PM ]

The FAA, in conjunction with the DOE and NNSA, have added a new category of airspace to the east and south of R-5101 called "National Defense Airspace" (NDA). The purpose of this new airspace is to restrict/prohibit all UAS (Unmanned Aircraft Systems) operations, including public, civil, and model aircraft (e.g. - drones) over select national security sensitive areas from the surface to 400 ft above ground level. In effect, this is a new "No Drone Zone". Much of LANL is already covered by restricted airspace (R-5101) which prohibits such flights between the surface and 12,000' MSL. The NDA expands upon this. In the attached image, the restricted airspace is shown in orange, and the new National Security Airspace is shown in blue. With the addition of this new airspace, personal drone flights are prohibited not only within the restricted airspace covering most of LANL property, but also along the entirety of Pajarito road, and all along NM-4 between White Rock and the junction of NM-4 and 501.

While the purpose of this new airspace is clearly aimed at restricting UAS operations between the surface and 400 AGL, and is unlikely to impact manned aircraft operations out of LAM, it is good to be aware of this new category of airspace.
