At the request of the USFS, we issued a NOTAM to close the Weaverville Airport (general traffic), and for the airport to be used as a staging and operational area for firefighting equipment until August 28, 2023. They will have at least eight helicopters to fight the fire southwest of Trinity Center. The NOTAM may be extended based on the USFS operational needs.
Trinity County owns and operates a county wide airport system consisting of five public use general aviation airports located throughout the County - Lonnie Pool Field in Weaverville; James E. Swett Field in Trinity Center; Hayfork Airport; Hyampom Airport; and Ruth Airport.
Both county residents and visitors can access the rugged remoteness of Trinity County easily and enjoy the surrounding attractions of each airfield's locale.
Currently, there is no fuel or car rentals available at any of the five airports.
Trinity County operates Hangar Leasing at Trinity Center, Weaverville, and Hayfork Airports.
Overnight tie-downs are $3.00 per night and seasonal or annual permits are available.
