SBSM Santa Maria 2023
Santa Maria Airport is the small regional airport serving Santa Maria, Brazil. It is operated by the Municipality of Santa Maria. The airfield started life in 1944 with the collaboration of the United States Army and it was opened in April 1945. Between 1971 and 2015, with the creation of the Santa Maria Air Force Base, civil and military facilities were shared. However, in 2015 an agreement between the Brazilian Air Force and the Municipality of Santa Maria, transferred part of the facilities to the latter. The civil portion of the aerodrome is administered by the Municipality and the military portion by the Brazilian Air Force. It shares a modern new control tower
At this moment there is only one regular airline using the airport, this is Azul Brazilian Airlines flying to Porto Alegre.
Santa Maria has two runway:
Runway 11-29 8839'
Runway 02-20 4938' (only used by the military)
The airport has an ILS approach for Runway 11 110.3 'ISM'
Various military types use the airport including the AMX Jet trainer and C130 Hercules aircraft, but the C130 is now being phased out in favour of the new Embraer KC390 transport/tanker aircraft.
