Richard Leahy adds:
"Constructed during the late 1970s by the Bensbach Wild Life Lodge. At that time the Lodge was owned by Bob Bates (currently Trans Niugini Tours in Mt. Hagen) and Brian Brumley. Brian did all of the construction of the lodge and hands on management of the lodge until he passed away about ten years ago in Cairns. Brian built the strip. It is still operating and is a good one. It is now owned by Bob Bates and is still very active."

This airfield provides light aircraft service to the area. IATA: BSP
