Stampede Airport (FAA LID: Z90) is a public use airport located 25 nautical miles (29 mi, 46 km) northeast of the central business district of Kantishna, a community in the Denali Borough of the U.S. state of Alaska.[1] The airport is located in the Denali National Park and Preserve and owned by the U.S. National Park Service.[1]

Facilities and aircraft[edit]

Stampede Airport has one runway designated 15/33 with a turf surface measuring 1,960 by 40 feet (597 x 12 m). In past years, the airstrip was 4,000 feet long but now about half is grown over with 10+ foot tall trees. For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2005, the airport had 30 aircraft operations, an average of 2 per month: 67% air taxi and 33% general aviation. The National Park Service has restricted this airstrip for commercial landings though it is open to private landings. [1]
