The airport is unfenced and open to visitors. Many old propliners lie derelict around the few buildings that exist. In the past, visitors were asked to check in with the primary tenant, International Air Response. But recently, IAR has begun to move out of the airport. It is unknown at this time what will remain of the derelict propliners and other buildings and equipment at the airport. One story circulating is that the owner of the airfield, the Gila River Indian Community, will develop the airport into a functional general aviation facility. However, a there is a strong opposition to this plan, and the website link is to the latest news regarding the situation.
