Community Awareness

The Ukiah Regional Airport is committed to maintaining a safe operational environment for general aviation operations at the Ukiah Regional Airport. At the same it is our goal to evaluate operational variables that impact the quality of life for all Ukiah area residents.

Given these considerations, the requested procedures have been developed with the full understanding that the pilot in command has the ultimate authority to determine the safest operation of his/her aircraft and that procedures contained in this brochure defer to the pilot’s judgment when conditions dictate.

It is further noted that as the environment surrounding Ukiah changes, these procedures may require modifications in an effort to recognize the changing needs of Ukiah and the residents we serve.

Remember, not everyone in and around the airport is an aviation enthusiast. Please keep in mind the impact we have on those on the ground. By adhering to these Operational Procedures, we maintain safe, responsible general aviation operations while helping to contribute positively to the quality of life for those who live around our airport, and their perception of the aviation community.
