The District made this decision by consensus at its July 28, 2021 Board of Directors Meeting. This decision was reached in an effort to assist those in our community, as well as airport staff recovering from the tragic aircraft accident of July 26, 2021. In an abundance of caution, as well as respect for those most affected by the accident, the Airport District Board and Airport Staff agree that the cancelation of the 2021 Air Show is in the best interest of the community and District. The District would like to thank all those who put forth so much time and effort into preparing for this annual event including the Truckee Optimist Club, KidZone Museum, and the local Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) Chapter 1073 for all their efforts and understanding. Please check back for updates on future Air Show & Family Festival events.
