Our Rural Airports
The importance
of our rural airports
A rural airport is a time capsule to an earlier time. Most rural airports have not changed much over the years. They are not like the major airports that most travelers are used to seeing. They feel much like airports of the 50ís No screening or other annoying security to deal with. Highway 49, 50, 80 & 120 are the major highway along the western slope of the Sierra.

The "Forty-Niners" traces this path once searching for gold. Some settled along this same route. when traveling on visiting our Rural Airports and traveling along with the miners. In the early 30ís and 40ís most of our rural airports started to appear. along the western slope of the Sierra Gold Country.

New Hangar Policy
New Hangar
Policy for
Waiting List
On December 15, 2015, the Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors approved a new hangar waiting list policy for Columbia and Pine Mountain Lake Airports.

For years anyone could be on a waiting list for a hanger at either airport. This now has changed with the new waiting list policy. This new policy will require you to fill out a new hangar application, be over 18 years of age, have valid ID, and make a one-time deposit of three hundred dollars ($300.00) in advance.

Flying the Hump
Was The Only Option.
During World War II, 600 Allied Aircraft were lost crossing the Himalayas to supply the Flying Tigers in China. Japan controlled the entire coast of China, Philippines, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and then Burma.
In August 2016, a C47 departed from Australia and flew through Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar and "across the hump" to Kunming, then on to Guilin, China. The final resting place for this historic aircraft is to be the main exhibition display at the Flying Tiger Museum
