Black Rock Airport (ICAO: KZUNFAA LID: ZUN) is a public use airport located three nautical miles (6 km) northeast of the central business district of Zuni Pueblo, a pueblo in McKinley County, New Mexico, United States. It is owned by the Pueblo of Zuñi.[1] According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, it is classified as a general aviation airport.[2]

Although many U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, this airport is assigned ZUN by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned ZUN to Union Station in Chicago, Illinois[4]).

Facilities and aircraft[edit]

Black Rock Airport covers an area of 88 acres (36 ha) at an elevation of 6,454 feet (1,967 m) above mean sea level. It has one runway designated 6/24 with a fair-condition asphalt surface measuring 4,807 by 50 feet (1,465 x 15 m). For the 12-month period ending March 31, 2009, the airport had 110 aircraft operations: 91% air taxi and 9% general aviation.[1]
