 Help Fly Friendly at O88!

When flying into Rio Vista Municipal Airport, please observe the following procedures:

  • There is a noise sensitive area north of the Airport.
  • Avoid over flights over Trilogy at Rio Vista homes, the ranch and corral north of the end of Runway 33.
  • On Runway 25, it is a clam wind runway.  Please use this runway as often.
  • O88 recommends a straight out climb to 700 feet before crosswind turn on both Runway 7-25 and 15-33.

 Travis Air Force Base Asks YOU to Fly Friendly In and Near Their Air Space

Travis Air Force Base wants to eliminate midair collisions and reduce close calls through continuous flight safety and proper flight planning. Through visiting http://www.seeandavoid.org/default.aspx, pilots flying around O88 can be aware of military aircraft flying in the vicinity of the Airport.  The goal of See and Avoid is to promote information exchange between civilian pilots and the military flight safety community and provide a one-stop shopping to help all of us safely share the skies. This portal will allow users to find and link to all existing military Mid-Air Collision Avoidance (MACA) programs in a single web site, while also enjoying new access to information from bases that did not previously have web-based content.  Please fly smart and safely.

 Airport Privatization Pilot Program Information

Congress established FAA's Airport Privatization Pilot Program to explore privatization as a means of generating access to various sources of private capital for airport improvement and development. Private companies may own, manage, lease and develop public airports. The 2012 Reauthorization Act increased the number of airports than can participate from five to 10. The Act authorized FAA to permit up to 10 public airport sponsors to sell or lease an airport with certain restrictions and to exempt the sponsor from certain federal requirements that could otherwise make privatization impractical. The airport owner or lease holder may be exempt from repayment of federal grants, return of property acquired with federal assistance, and the use of proceeds from the airport’s sale or lease to be used exclusively for airport purposes. The pilot program began in September 1997.
