Taos Regional Airport (IATA: TSMICAO: KSKXFAA LID: SKX) is a public-use airport located eight nautical miles (15 km) northwest of the central business district of Taos, in Taos County, New Mexico, United States. It is owned by the Town of Taos.[1] According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, it is classified as a general aviation airport.[2]

For the 12-month period ending April 7, 2009, the airport had 13,250 aircraft operations, an average of 36 per day: 95% general aviation, 3% air taxi, and 2% military. At that time there were 43 aircraft based at this airport: 88% single-engine, 5% multi-engine and 7% ultralight.[1]
