The Truckee Tahoe Airport is a community airport that provides high quality aviation facilities and services to meet local needs, and strives for low impact on our neighbors while enhancing the benefit to the community-at-large.


Local Truckee resident and Army veteran Jessie: " We were kayaking at Donner Lake and I looked up and saw multiple WWII era C-47's banking over the lake and it brought tears to my eyes and filled my heart with pride! Thank you Truckee Tahoe Airport for putting on this 4th of July event."
