Perry Stokes Airport (IATA: TAD, ICAO: KTAD) is 11 miles (18 km) northeast of Trinidad, Colorado. Until 1957 it was on Continental's route between Denver and Albuquerque, one DC-3 a day each way; it may not have had scheduled airline flights since then.
The airport covers 650 acres (263 ha) and has two runways:
- 3/21: 5,500 x 100 ft (30 m) Asphalt
- 9/27: 5,500 x 100 ft (30 m) Gravel/Dirt
Built in 1936 by the Works Project Administration, the airport was originally named Trinidad Airport. It takes its current name from Perry F. Stokes, an early airport manager and flight instructor.
