SPAP elevation problem?

Is there a problem with the SPAP airport in Peru? The runway appears to be in a narrow box canyon that cannot be approached without crashing. Elevation on the runway appears to match elevation listed online, but I could not land or takeoff there due to the high “canyon” walls.

Hi there,

I just took off from there in the TBM and there is possibly an error with the elevation. Will relay this to the airport editing authorities.

Howdy,

It appears that this airport has been disused for quite a while. Satellite imagery dating back as far as 1989 shows this location as being overgrown. In light of these facts, I have decided to remove this airport.

Thanks,

Ryan
