Any plane except the Cargo Plane can easily land on any runway of the Sandy Shores Airfield, however bigger planes need careful manoeuvring to land. The airfield can be accessed from Panorama Drive and from the dirt roads connecting it to Joshua Road in the north and Route 68 in the south. Senora National Park is located in front of the main entrance of Sandy Shores Airfield.

Events of GTA 5

During the early events of GTA 5 Trevor Philips and Ron Jakowski capture the Sandy Shores Airfield after taking over it from The Lost MC. They clear off the Sandy Shores Airfield by gunning down several Lost MC members. The Sandy Shores Airfield was soon taken over completely by Trevor Philips.

Later, the airfield is used many times and appears in many missions like Monkey Business and The Merryweather Heist Offshore Approach. In Arms Trafficking Air 5, Trevor's rival drug runners take over the airfield and move in their own aircraft and equipment. Trevor has to bomb them with his Cuban 800.
