Scottsdale Airport is a city-owned public-use airport located nine miles (14 km) north of the central business district of Scottsdale, a city in Maricopa County, Arizona, United States. Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Scottsdale Airport is assigned SDL by the FAA and SCF by the IATA (which assigned SDL to Midlanda Airport in Sundsvall, Sweden).

As per Federal Aviation Administration records, the airport had 444,798 passenger boardings (or enplanements) in calendar year 2005 and 266 enplanements in 2006. According to the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2007 2011, Scottsdale was designated as a reliever airport, which is a general aviation airport that may be used to relieve congestion at a large commercial service airport.

It is one of the busiest single-runway facilities in the nation, with approximately 202,000 operations in 2004. The airport averages approximately 10,000 passengers a year. The airport offers clearance, ground and tower services from 1300Z to 0400Z (6 am to 9 pm local time) daily.

Neighbors complain about aircraft noise around the airport, with over 9,000 complaints being logged in 2004 alone. However, it is unlikely that the airport would close, due to Federal grant assurances, and the tremendous economic impact it provides for Scottsdale. Also, the land would revert to the Seventh-day Adventist Church (which founded the airport), under the deed that the city of Scottsdale signed with the church to make the airport municipal.
