How to find the Carson City Airport once you are in Carson City
It would appear easy to find the Carson City Airport with a smart phone or GPS, but many people get lost with this technique.
Once you get into Carson City, it is best to follow the directions below and you will go right there and avoid the frustration of getting sent to the wrong place.
- From the 395 freeway, take exit 41 and go east on College Parkway.
- The airport is less than a mile from the freeway (College Parkway also crosses the 395 main business Carson Street).
- Address is 2640 E. College Parkway, Carson City, NV 89706-0402 USA.
- You drive into the main airport terminal entrance and go right to the Sterling Air building.
- If the Sterling Air building is not open, go through the chain link gate to the left of the Sterling Air door into the airport and go to the right around the building and wait at the picnic table. If both the building and the gate is locked hang tight and I show up typically at our agreed time.
- Call Paul’s mobile at 775-772-8232 with any questions or if you get lost.
