Over fifty years ago, Arnold Senterfitt mapped his first airport in Mexico. This was done on a trip with three other aircraft who were in search of airports for a yet to be named group of people who were to become the Flying Samaritans. Upon finding and landing on several dirt strips, Arnold measured and made rough diagrams for his future use. After several more trips and many more diagrams, all on single sheets of paper, Arnold gathered up all the diagrams and put them in a note book. Upon seeing this "airport book", several of Arnold's friends wanted a copy and this was the start of Senterfitt's Airports of Baja and Mainland Mexico.

Developed over a period of more than 50 years, this Mexican airport guide covers all paved airports in Mexcio and most airports/landing strips in Baja Mexico plus it now covers airports in Central America Countries. Considered a must by most that fly south of the border, it is carried by both small and commercial aircraft.

  • All International Airports in Mexico
  • All paved airports in Mexico

A must for flying in Mexico

  • By A Customer from Marathon, FL on Thursday, January 04, 2018
  • Pros: It is the best source of information for us little GA people.
  • Review: Not only does the author provide the critical information i.e runway length, frequencies, etc, he also has personal notes about what he experienced when landing / visiting / etc.

  • By Roger from Miami FL USA on Monday, September 22, 2014
  • Pros: None
  • Review: Very poor. Not what I expected. Poor pictures not enough details.

Well... there isn't an awful lot to say....

  • By Jsmes from dewey AZ USA on Wednesday, February 12, 2014
  • Pros:
  • Review: Probably won't be going back.

Not all that useful

  • By A Customer from Wayne PA USA on Thursday, July 18, 2013
  • Pros: Reasonably comprehensive
  • Review: Very little detailed information on airports beyond the "vital statistics" such as runway length, fuel availability etc.

A must have!!!

  • By A Customer from Oregon on Tuesday, January 22, 2013
  • Pros: Knowledge, acuracy and proven
  • Review: No where else can all of this current information be found in one place!! Even better, take advantage of what the Baja Bush Pilots organization can offer to you in the way of support!

It is a "must have" if flying to Mexico and Central America

  • By Milton Hershey from Houston TX on Wednesday, December 26, 2012
  • Pros: Am recommending it to my friends
  • Review: I bought this book because one of my friends who flys to Mexico highly recommended it to me. I am delighted with the information contained in it as well as it seems that because of the personal notes on many pages, the author has visited many of the airports and has first hand knowledge of what to expect

  • By frank from Fort Worth TX USA on Tuesday, November 06, 2012
  • Pros:
  • Review: Not the easiest to use , but some good info at time.Too much money for what it is.

Indispensable

  • By Old timer thinking about recertifying from Sierra Vista, AZ on Sunday, March 22, 2009
  • Pros: Chock full of off-the-beaten track landing strips with local information.
  • Review: In 1973, as a low-time fixed wing single engine whiz kid, I flew, with unsuspecting friends, from COS to Tepic where we spent Christmas on a beach spoiled only by occasional horses. Except for this collection, the trip would have been a disaster in more ways than the obvious one. Enroute, we flew mostly tiny dirt strips where ground service consisted of barefooted kids toting 5-gallon jerry cans of questionable "Avgas" that I filtered through a piece of chamois. The kids, not lacking enthusiasm even if aviation ground skills weren't their forte, served as "guards" for our Cessna in our absence, and were ecstatic with the buck or two we doled out upon our departure. Aside from providing us excellent orientation maps, without this book our two-week trip wouldn't have been as "quaint" and enjoyable as it turned out to be. The 2008 update is a must-have for the vacationing tourist.

A nice complement for my Mexico trip kit.

  • By Ron from Jasper TX USA on Monday, March 24, 2008
  • Pros:
  • Review: Helpful, but not a must have.
