General Aviation


General Aviation (GA) Services at Reno-Tahoe International Airport (RNO) and Reno-Stead Airport (RTS) are operated by the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA). GA includes all civil aviation operations other than scheduled passenger and cargo airline service.

Whether your GA activity is conducted for pleasure, private business or public service, RNO appreciates the needed flexibility in conducting general aviation operations.

The Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority considers GA to be a key contributor to regional economic growth and development, and an integral component of the airport system and its ability to thrive. General Aviation services and infrastructure are also critical to the overall success at Reno-Tahoe International Airport and Reno-Stead Airport and it is a strategic priority to optimize General Aviation operations and services at both locations. The RTAA initiatives to optimize GA at RNO and RTS include:

  • Encouraging a variety of FBO contracts and other service vendors
  • Attracting jet service centers and maintenance/repair facilities
  • Optimizing the GA customer service experience to attract and retain general aviation
