What size of aircraft can land at the St. Thomas Municipal Airport?
That depends on the particular aircraft and its capabilities, including its weight and acceleration and stop capabilities.
The airport has been redesigned to accommodate aircraft with an ALN (Aircraft Load Rating) of 9. While an aircraft like a B-737 can take off and land at our airport, constant repetitive use would stress the runway and reduce its lifespan considerably. The airport accommodates the critical aircraft which in our case is the Dash 8-300 and the Short S360. All piston and turbo prop aircraft plus all small and large corporate class jets can be accommodated.
Do you have a courtesy vehicle?
Yes. It is available for visiting corporate pilots to use while their customers are in town on business.
