Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • The overlook is a nice place to relax and enjoy the view of Sedona. We stayed until sunset, it was such a delight.  more »
  • Another "Vortex" area, and if you're a sceptic--or just not into that-- you'll love the beautiful views. There's a rim trail off the view overlook if you've got some pent up energy to release.its beau...  more »

  • Gets crowded for sunset viewing, but paid "Airport parking" across the street is usually available. If I remember correctly, we paid something like $3 or $5 flat rate. There are limited other pullouts along the way, but you'd have to come pretty early to snag a spot there. Nice view over the Sedona valley facing West into the sunset and to your right the reflections in the red rock formations towards the East of Sedona. Go here for a quick drivable view of the sunset, but don't expect solitude.
  • See Sedona from the SKY!!! So many celebrities fly in to this little airport! The Sedona Airport overlook is one of Arizona's best kept secrets! You absolutely must stop here! Take in the most breathtaking views of the red rocks and the little town of Sedona. The Airport also has a fabulous bar and a gourmet restaurant with outdoor patio seating! You will find breakfast, lunch and dinner, featuring world renound chef! Book air tours direct here with "Guidance Air" from the airport and save $$$ too! You truly must see Sedona from the sky!
  • You might think that stopping at a scenic overlook is beneath your visitor's mentality, however you are so wrong. So, so wrong. If there is any easy to reach, mind-blowing vista in Sedona better than the airport overlook, please send me there. Sure, you can climb Bell Rock and watch the sunset or join me at Cathedral Rock for Full Moon drumming and have a guaranteed, one-of-a-kind experience, but the Airport Overlook is a drive-up and get-out affair that offers a unique view of Sedona nestled below while surrounded by the countless, massive Red Rock formations that brought you here in the first place. Take your selfies here and post them everywhere for your friends to be dazzled by them. Come early in the morning for dynamic photographs. Get married a few hundred yards away at the Masonic Lodge's lookout where Barry Goldwater hosted Easter Sunrise service for many years. Watch sunset with 100 other people. Stay at the Airport Lodge and walk over to the Overlook whenever you feel like it. I bet you'll be glad you did.
  • 3 dollars to park, watching the sub disappear behind three mountain, priceless.
  • The view was elevated, but the viewing area is not maintained. Overgrown bushes and trees block a majority of the view of the city and red rock cliff faces. There are better places for sunset especially since parking is charged for a blocked view and crowded area.
