NAME CHANGE: Sand Canyon Airport changes name to Chewelah Municipal Airport…
It is official. The Sand Canyon Airport has changed its name to the Chewelah Municipal Airport. This comes after the Chewelah City Council voted and approved the name change earlier this year. Mayor Dorothy Knauss submitted the paperwork to WSDOT Aviation and the FAA.
“The ‘Sand Canyon Airport’ was viewed as an air park,” Knauss said. “The city intends, now that we own it, to develop it, add fuel, etc., so we think Chewelah Municipal Airport is more reflective of what it will be one day.” More
