Sedona Airport is a small non-towered airport located two miles (3 km) southwest of the central business district of Sedona, a city in Yavapai County, Arizona, United States. The airport covers 220acre and has one runway and one helipad.Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Sedona Airport is assigned SEZ by the FAA and SDX by the IATA (which assigned SEZ to Seychelles International Airport in Mahé, Seychelles).Sedona is a very popular destination among Arizona tourists, especially with those who are interested in the New Age movement or those seeking to be close to nature. The airport is located on top of a high mesa overlooking a major portion of the city; it is not uncommon for tourists or locals driving around downtown Sedona to see an approaching airplane fly overhead and then suddenly disappear into the mountains without ever appearing to land. The airport is also located very close to the Red Rocks of Sedona.

  • Great views Sedona to the West and the topography in general. Moderately difficult trails. Had a wonderful time hiking this area.  more »
  • Lots of paid parking at the viewing area. Spectacular view of the city. You can also take a hike down to the vortex if you are not able to park there. It is .6 mile hike but seems longer.  more »
  • A spectacular place to see the sunset, along with about 100 of your new best friends. There's a paid parking lot across the road, but crossing the road can be treacherous since most pedestrians aren't...  more »

  • Easy to find overlook with tons of parking! The view is beautiful though the sunset isn't much from up here since the western view is blocked by a lot of trees. But still gorgeous and worth a visit
  • Great view! The Sky Ranch Lodge is right next to it. There are 2 air tour places near by as well as the Mesa Grill restaurant. I haven't been to the Mesa Grill but I hear, it is good.
  • There is not much to do there. Good is good but pricy Feels luxury to people who don't fly much yet. Very beautiful views and very exciting landing there.
  • It was a beautiful evening for a sunset with a partly cloudy sky. The cliffs illuminate and show their best colors. Very crowded so get there early. $3 to park across the street.
  • Great views of West Sedona. This is now a fee base parking area for the viewpoint. Get a Red Rock parking pass from the ranger station as you enter town , way cheaper than paying to park at the various other sites.
