The runway is currently
6,005’ x 75’ with new 4-bar PAPI approach lights on each
end. The airport category has also been increased to
safely accommodate larger airplanes.
Large corporate jets, including all Citations,
Challengers, Falcons, Hawkers and Gulfstreams routinely
use the airport.
A&P-IA Mechanic on staff.
The airport is served by three GPS
and VOR approaches that provide the best (lowest)
approach minimums between San Antonio and Laredo, and
the airport is slated to receive GPS LPV approaches
(250' AGL minimums) on September 18th. The straight-in
approaches to each runway are especially nice.
Airport Security is excellent.
Security includes six security lights and a video
surveillance system, plus the runway and ramp are
enclosed by a tall, deer-proof (resistant) fence that
provides good security as well as a safe aircraft
operations area. The airport manager also lives on the
airport, overlooking the ramp, providing an added
measure of security.
The Cotulla-La Salle County Airport (KCOT) is well suited for a wide range
of operations due to its location and capabilities, and there is ample
acreage and infrastructure on the airport to accommodate large-scale airport

The National Weather Service automated weather system on the airport
is a definite advantage for FAA Part 135 air taxi operators and others
seeking enhanced safety. This system provides continuous official weather,
which is reported through normal NWS/FAA channels, over a VHF transmitter on
118.32 MHz and by phone at 830-879-2861.
The Airport Manager will gladly assist to the degree requested, during
planning, preparation and completion of specific flights and/or other needs.
Construction is in Progress
The new 6,005' runway is available at this time; the new
ramp and south taxiways open September 9th. New GPS-LPV
approaches will be published September 18th. Project
scheduled for completion in December. During the
remainder of the project, the 6,005' runway will remain
open except for brief scheduled closures; check NOTAMS.
