The civilian part of this airfield is also known as Maldonado Internacional.

Mentors have graced the Uruguay skies for many years, various subtypes having been operated by both air force and navy. This T-34C is one of two survivors of this particular model. It is on navy charge with Escuela de Aviación Naval at Laguna del Sauce.

The navy has used several models of the S-58 for many years and this Wessex HC2 is one of five late acquisitions from the UK. Recently, the last survivor was withdrawn from use.
