Welcome To The Reno-Stead Airport Association


The Reno-Stead Airport, formerly Reno Army Air Base and then Stead Air Force Base was turned over to the city of Reno in 1966 and is now operated by the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority . It is the premier general aviation airport in Northern Nevada and is a reliever airport for Reno-Tahoe International Airport.

The Reno-Stead Airport Association (RSAA) was formed in 1996 by business owners and tenants on the Reno-Stead Airport who felt that a legal entity would be the best solution to ensuring airport user input to development and use plans for Reno-Stead.

RSAA’s mission is to ensure that all Tenants have the opportunity to speak in a united voice to the Reno Tahoe Airport Authority (owner of the airfield facility), the Federal Aviation Administration and the Local Governments relative to safe and affordable flying in Northern Nevada, while also enriching and promoting the reputation of General Aviation within our community.

Membership in RSAA is open to all individuals who use or wish to support the Reno-Stead Airport.
