The Carson City Airport has received more than $29 million in FAA grants and airport funds to improve the infrastructure of the airport’s runways, taxiways, and aprons for expansion and to better serve the aviation community. We continue to strive to bring first class enjoyable experience to our tenants and visitors to the Carson City Airport.

Past Projects:

Main Apron Reconstruction will begin August 26th. Phase I will comprise of the East Third of the Main Apron. Phase II will comprise of the West Third. Phase I and II of  Main Apron Reconstruction is expected to be completed by November, 2013.

Safety Aspect

Safety is the primary consideration for the Carson City Airport during construction. To ensure all safety and security measures are maintained, the Carson City Airport Authority in conjunction with Atkins Global Engineering (airport engineer) has prepared a “Construction Safety Plan.” The purpose of this plan is to provide attention to aviation safety and operational practices and requirements during construction on the airport.

For additional information concerning the Construction Safety Plan, a copy will be available for review in the Carson City Airport Manager’s office located in the terminal building at the airport.

Airport Board approves ADS-B Ground Station Installation!

Over 50 District constituents attended the June 26, 2019 board meeting to discuss the merits of installing an Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcast (ADS-B) system to provide air traffic coverage in the Lake Tahoe - Sierra regional airspace.

The Board voted 5-0 in favor of funding 2 ADS-B ground stations for ~$1M. One station will be located at KTRK and the other at KTVL (South Lake Tahoe Airport). The stations will provide full ADS-B coverage in both Martis Valley and the Lake Tahoe basin.

FAA licensed prime-contractor Harris Corporation will install the ground stations. Work is expected to be completed by late spring 2020.

Once completed the system will improve aviation safety and efficiency, not only for pilots and their passengers, but also for community members and local and national air traffic controllers. The system is expected to give local air traffic controllers better tools to reduce neighborhood overflights with increased control of flight paths.
