Airports

Cíbolo Creek Ranch Airport is located on the ranch about 4 miles from the headquarters and 33 miles SSW of Marfa, Texas. The FAA Identifier is TS15. We have one runway: Runway 9/27, 5,300 feet long and 60 feet wide, which can accommodate most private aircraft. Our surface is crushed rock and asphalt with an emulsion coating. There are turnaround areas at both ends of the runway and a paved parking area. The runway is lighted for nighttime arrivals. There is no FBO and we do not have aviation fuel, which is, however, conveniently available in Marfa.

The latitude of the airstrip is 29° 53′ 36.36″ N (29.900081), the longitude is 104° 15′ 09.65″ W (104.264340), and the elevation is 4,400 feet above sea level.

Prior to your arrival, we will fax or e-mail you all of the necessary documentation for landing. Upon the return of your documents, we will establish an estimated arrival time, arrange for your transportation to our headquarters, and turn on the landing lights if you request. We ask that you call us, once your passengers have arrived and you are ready to take off, with an estimate of your arrival time. We will be waiting for you at our landing strip. There is no charge for your pickup and return to our airstrip.

There are two alternate airports with FBOs and aviation fuel in our vicinity. Marfa Municipal Airport is approximately 31 nautical miles by air from our ranch, about 40 miles by road, and Alpine-Casparis Airport is 42 nautical miles by air, about 63 miles by road. Presidio Lely International Airport is an international port of entry, but has no FBO. Self-service fuel is available with a major credit card. It is 16 nautical miles by air and about 21 miles by road.
