Airport of the Month: Mariposa

January 1, 2022 - January 31, 2022

One of Yosemite’s gateways, Mariposa (MPI) is located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. Did you know that Mariposa offers a handful of amenities in addition to being a fun cross-country destination?

AirBornn Aviation is the local FBO, and provides rental cars to pilots with advance notice. You can use the rental cars to drive to Yosemite National Park, making the trip to this famous national park much shorter, given that you are already in the mountains. Jump onto Highway 140 for the drive, which takes just over an hour, and follows the Merced River to the park. Other options include going to Badger Pass, where you can ski, or rent snowshoes and cross-country ski gear for a hike to Glacier Point.

Don’t want to head to Yosemite? Walk 15 minutes along the road (or use the courtesy car) to the small village just south of the airport, where a small diner awaits. The Airport Bar and Grill serves American-fare for lunch and is a quiet local favorite.

Have you been to Mariposa, or going there this month? Let us know at flyoutgroup@sancarlosflight.com how it is.
