ABOUT THE AIRPORT
Sonoma Valley Airport (aka Schellville) is a privately owned Public Use Airport serving Sonoma County since 1946. Schellville airport receives no funding from any government agency (tax payer dollars). We are free to the public to use. We do not charge a landing fee, and overnight stays up to 7 days, tie down is free.
Open to pilots dawn to dusk. Welcome to Schellville,
we hope you enjoy your stay.



Sonoma Valley Airport was started by Waldemar "Wally" Reichelt not long after Wally was discharged from the US Army at the end of WWII.

The airport was much smaller than it is
today but many of the original structures,
such as these seen the the photo at left,
still stand.


In this view looking southwest,
taken in the 1960's, Runway 17/35
is in the same location it is today. Looking like a taxiway to 17/35, the short "east/west" was actually
"Runway 25/7" used when the
prevailing westerly winds kicked-up.


The airport as
it looks today.
