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.

New Care Flight Heliport Now Open! 

Construction is complete on the new heliport project on the west side of the airfield. Meyers Earthwork Inc., was the contractor on the $382,500, eight week joint Truckee Tahoe Airport District and FAA AIP (Airport Improvement Project). The project entailed relocating and expanding the Care Flight helipad to the west side of the Care Flight office/housing building and expanding the heliport to park two helicopters with up to 43' rotor diameters simultaneously. A new portable 500 gallon high fuel flow Jet-A delivery system was also included with this project, allowing for quick-turn EMS flights. (Drone Photo by: Marc Lamb)
