In the Heart of the Sierra

Carson City Airport, KCXP, is conveniently located 3 miles NE of downtown Carson City, 30 miles from downtown Reno, 13 miles from Virginia City, and only 20 minutes from Lake Tahoe, making our airport a welcome destination for vacation and business travelers, and ‘just for pleasure’ aviators. Pilots consider Carson City Airport to be the most user-friendly airport in Northern Nevada.

The airport is currently the 5th overall busiest airport and the 3rd busiest General Aviation (GA) airport in Nevada.

The ‘Capital City’ airport is a public use, 24 hour airport with a 6,100 ft. long x 75 ft. wide runway.
