I think there is an Airport called "Grand Canyon National Park" that's near to the GC but there is one or two that are located in it. Those airports consist of only dust runways but unfortunatley at this time I can't remember those airports names or their ICAO.

i was on my way to Vegas, from Pheonix AZ, I saw a ditch carved into the rocks, I guess that was the canyon 😂

One of the "Scenic" flights in FS09 starts near that Grand Canyon NP Airport, with the plane airborne and flying toward the rim of the canyon. The Grand Canyon one of the more impressive geological features in FS09, in my opinion.

A fun trip is to take off from that airport and follow the canyon to the west, flying as low as you can-- a 100 feet or so above the river, if you can manage it. It requires a very maneuverable airplane, to say the least. I've done parts of it in the Extra 300, but I went all the way to Las Vegas in a Vought Corsair (in FS2002). That was fun.
