Our general aviation Airport is a 990-acre, full-service, non-towered facility located at the foothills of the rugged Sierra Nevada Mountains in the Carson Valley area of Douglas County and just minutes from the pristine alpine waters of Lake Tahoe. Built in 1942 as a military training base, Douglas County operates the Airport to serve diverse aviation uses, including sport aviation, emergency services and corporate flying. The area is recognized as one of the best locations in the world for soaring and is home to approximately 18 businesses, 340 based aircraft and an estimated economic impact of $47 million and 130 jobs.
