The Belen Alexander Airport, named after former mayor Neil Alexander who was mayor at the time the airport idea was conceived.
Built on the west mesa one mile west of I-25, the airport is home to over 50 aircraft, a skydive club, a propeller overhaul facility, aerial photographer, and other small aviation businesses.
Recently a new pilot’s lounge was opened funded by the State Aviation Division. The lounge features restrooms, internet access, shower, classroom/conference room, and kitchenette. Future plans include a crosswind runway within five years.
There are small and large areas available for development of aviation related businesses. Rules, regulations and minimum standards are available online under the following link: Belen Municipal Code Section 11.
This is a live view of the airport, seen at ground level just south of the main runway. There is a different view everyday so visit often.
