CCRA’s identifier is AEJ (KAEJ). General flight information and supplemental resources can be found on the AirNav website. AWOS and weather data analysis is available, as is ARNAV (GPS) approach.

CCRA sits on a mesa above the intersection of US 285 and US 24. It is located in a valley that is closely surrounded on three sides by mountains. This topography creates what is called a ‘blue hole.’ Throughout most of the year, the sky above the airport is cloudless, even though the surrounding mountains may be shrouded by clouds. Consequently, the airport enjoys many more days of visibility than most mountain airfields.
