Piper Saratoga Landing on the USS Sedona
The Sedona Airport, (KSEZ) is referred to as the “USS Sedona” because it is similar to landing on an aircraft carrier. Sedona is a dangerous airport and landing there is difficult for pilots due to wind, terrain and density altitude. The Sedona Airport is located atop a 500 foot high mesa overlooking the City of Sedona
KSEZ is one of the most beautiful airports in the country. But because it’s built on a mesa, there’s little room for error. If you undershoot, you’re in trouble. If you overshoot, you’re in trouble.
