Nut Tree Airport is a general aviation (GA) airport located in Vacaville CA roughly halfway between San Francisco and Sacramento. The Airport is located on the I-80 corridor and has easy access to both Interstates 80 and 505. Vacaville and the Airport are stopping points for travelers visiting the SF Bay Area, the Napa Valley, the Capitol and South Lake Tahoe. The Airport is located within a locally known micro-climate between the SF Bay Area marine environment and the CA Central Valley region due to south/south-west air currents.  The Airport boasts only a limited number of flight days each year that are obscured by weather.


The Airport consists of 286 acres and receives approximately 102,700 aircraft operations each year. The Airport is home to 201 based aircraft and has 117 hangars and other various commercial office spaces. The Airport’s 4,700 foot long runway can accommodate a variety of aircraft from single engine to twins to small/medium sized business jets.


History

Nut Tree Airport began as a dirt airstrip located behind a fruit stand and eventual restaurant of the same name.  The Airport has operated since 1955 and has hosted many well-known aviators and their aircraft. Many remember the rich history of the Nut Tree of old, with its restaurant, fly-ins and pumpkin patch. The airport is currently owned and operated by Solano County and is a division of the General Services Department.
