Introduction to Byron Airport

(Class G Airspace)

Byron Airport is a non-towered airfield in Class G Airspace, located in the Bay Area, just 65 miles from downtown San Francisco and 55 miles from Silicon Valley. The surrounding communities offer an abundance of affordable housing for employees relative to other municipalities in the Bay Area.

Airport Specifications:

  • 4,500' x 100’ Runway 12-30 with PAPIs

  • 3,000' x 75’ Runway 5-23 with PAPIs

  • Class G Airspace up to 700' AGL (non-towered)

  • Lowest 100L fuel prices in the region

 

Easy access is available via I-580, located just 15 minutes from the airport.  ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Unmanned Aerial Systems
(UAS) Test Site

Many companies developing innovative UAS technologies want to test their product in the Bay Area given the proximity to capital (Silicon Valley) and talent. However, these emerging technologies require an environment conducive to innovative and cutting-edge aviation testing and development activities. Until now, there were no viable solutions to this problem, aside from testing on private land.

 

In March 2020, in coordination with the University of Alaska Fairbanks and ACUASI, Byron Airport was admitted to the Pan-Pacific Unmanned Aerial System Test Range Complex (PPUTRC). The PPUTRC is one of only official Federal Aviation Administration test sites in the United States for UAS.

 

Byron Airport now offers a designated UAS test area, which was established through a Certificate of Authorization maintained by ACUASI.

 

ACUASI has developed strong relationships and a proven track record with the FAA and will actively partner with companies to acquire any other required operational and/or airspace permits/waivers.
