Peruvian Aviation Infrastructure as of 31/12/1941


These are fully operational airbases, with permanent facilties including hangers, workshops, magazines, etc.

-Iquitos (NE)

-Tumbes (NW)

-Lima (Central)

-Tacna (S)

-Cuzco (SE)

Ferry Strips:

These are basic facilities designed to support the transfer of short-legged aircraft between aerodromes, or for emergency landings. They would consist of a strip, a small fuel cache, a radio/weather shack, and possibly a small shack for emergency crew shelter. There would probably be just a handful of personnel assigned to each such facility.

-Chiclayo and Chimbote (north coast, linking Lima to Tumbes)

-Tarapoto and Requena (inland, linking Iquitos to Chimbote and Chiclayo)

-Nazca and Arequipa (south coast, linking Cuzco, Lima, and Tacna)

Float Bases

These are support facilities for ongoing floatplane or flying boat operations. They would include small docks or ramps, fuel caches, workshops, barracks, and such.

Note that Iquitos (on the Amazon) and Puno (on Lake Titicaca) are on water bodies capable of supporting such facilities.
