Is your chartered flight legal?

We wanted to pass along a new website link www.avoidillegalcharter.com  dedicated to assisting the traveling public in identifying, avoiding, and reporting illegal charter activity.

The Truckee Airport has seen an uptick in membership and rideshare flight activity. Transportation of passengers for hire by an aircraft owner or operator is heavily regulated by the FAA. These activities are also regulated by the Truckee Tahoe Airport District through our Minimum Standards policies.

On the website any interested party may simply enter an operator name or aircraft tail number to verify charter status. If an operator is suspected of engaging in illegal charter, a report may be made by calling the Illegal Charter Hotline (888-SKY-FLT1) or by using the new, online Illegal Charter Report Form. Individuals may choose to remain anonymous through either reporting option.

For more information or questions contact Hardy Bullock at hardy.bullock@truckeetahoeairport.com or (530) 587-7940.
