Cesar Lim Rodriguez Airport[1] (Filipino: Paliparang Cesar Lim Rodriguez; Hiligaynon: Hulugpaan sang Cesar Lim Rodriguez) (IATA: RZP, ICAO: RPSD), also known as Taytay Airport,[2] Sandoval Airport[3] (after the barangay where it is located) or Taytay–Sandoval Airport,[4] is an airport serving the general area of Taytay, located in the province of Palawan in the Philippines. The facility was named after Taytay native Cesar Lim Rodriguez, a former judge[5] who donated part of his property for the airport.

The airport is owned by the Province of Palawan.[4] Recent interest in improving the infrastructure in this airport is due to its strategic location in the northern part of the Palawan mainland: the renowned beach resorts of the area (including El Nido and Apulit Island) and the historic town of Taytay are only 30 to 40 kilometers by road from the airport.[3] In comparison, the only other airport capable of handling large aircraft is located in the provincial capital of Puerto Princesa, approximately 230 kilometers to the south.[1]

In 2013 the Department of Transportation and Communications approved a ₱48.2-million budget for the airport's improvement, consisting of the concreting of a runway 1,100 meters long and 18 meters wide.[1]

In February 2016 the Sangguniang Panlalawigan of Palawan approved a resolution to permit the semi-privatization of the airport through a public–private partnership (PPP).[3] The Department of Transportation and Communications allotted ₱8.8 million for the airport's development for the year 2016.[2]
