Airport Improvement magazine article: Truckee Tahoe Airport (TRK) in California recently made a bold environmental move by changing from standard Jet A to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The general aviation airport started offering SAF several years ago, with a goal of gradually increasing the percentage sold to 100% by the end of 2023.

With the reopening of Runway 2/20 we kindly remind our aviation community that the easiest way to reduce your impact on our Truckee neighborhoods (winds permitting) is by departing Runway 2. The noise abatement procedure off Runway 2, known as the Scales Departure is a straight out departure until abeam the Sewage Treatment plant then a left turn to the Truck Scales on Interstate 80. From there proceed on course staying near the freeway if east or westbound. For more information please visit our ➤ Pilot Website
