Grand County Government advises pilots flying into GNB to call flight service at 1-800-992-7433, option #1 to check NOTAM information to determine if the Granby-Grand County airport is open and the runway is plowed.

The Colorado Pilots Association selected the Granby/Grand County Airport and the Salida Airport as its 2009 General Aviation Airports of the Year!

Pilot community thanks the Town of Granby for the donation of a courtesy car for use by visiting pilots.

The restoration of courtesy car availability at the Granby Airport (GNB) is also due to an economic development grant from the Friends of the Granby Airport, Inc., and due to cooperative efforts by members of EAA Chapter 1267, and members of the Friends of the Granby Airport. Inc.

The GNB courtesy car is stationed at the Flight Planning Facility which is in the former airline terminal at the East end of the airport. The keypad access code for entry into the Flight Planning Facility is CTAF. Further instructions on completing the required courtesy car access form and for obtaining access to the keys to the courtesy car are posted inside the Flight Planning Facility.

The courtesy car is provided on a first-come, first served basis. Pilots are requested to replace whatever gasoline is used."

Airport

Located in open terrain atop the Granby Mesa, the airport is an easy-in, easy out mountain airfield as can be seen from this view from the southeast. County-plowed runway in winter. No fees.

Free Computerized Weather Information System

Due to rising terrain to the East and the highly noise-sensitive, area bearing 075 degrees from, and located only 0.5 nm East of the airport, good mountain pilots rarely, if ever, take off to the East. Study the traffic pattern chart and the noise-sensitive notice shown below.
