Fly-in information

Trinity Center is the only airpark community along a public runway, adjacent to a lake in California. Flying into Trinity Center airport (O86) is fun and amazingly beautiful. Nestled in the Trinity Alps, Trinity Center is only 34 nm from Redding.

Unfortunately, we don't have fuel at Trinity Center. Or the entire county for that matter. So be sure to calculate your fuel and plan on stopping if needed before coming to the mountains. You can get the latest fuel prices on AirNav.

Since Trinity Lake level can vary between a foot or two over "full" to 100+ feet down, your aerial view of the airport can change each time you come in.

We do not have rental cars. However, many of the vacation rentals can arrange pickups at the airport. Bikes are available for use during the summer.
