Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport (IATA: STSICAO: KSTSFAA LID: STS) is a county-owned public-use airport located six nautical miles (11 km) northwest of downtown Santa Rosa, a city in Sonoma County, California, United States.[1][2] It serves the county and surrounding areas of Wine Country in California.

The airport is named after Charles M. Schulz, the famed cartoonist of the Peanuts comic strip, who lived and worked in Santa Rosa for more than 30 years. The airport's logo features Snoopy in his "World War I Flying Ace" attire, taking to the skies on top of his "Sopwith Camel" (i.e. his doghouse).

History

From 2001-2007, the airport was exclusively used for general aviation. Prior to that, commercial airline service was by United Express, which was stopped because their flights (to San Francisco and Los Angeles) were not profitable.

In March 2007, Horizon Air returned commercial aviation service to Santa Rosa with flights to Seattle/Tacoma and Los Angeles. Horizon added service to Portland, Oregon in the fall of 2007, and to Las Vegas in spring 2008. The additional routes brought new hope that other airlines will start flying into Sonoma County.

Facilities and aircraft

Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport covers an area of 1,014 acres (410 ha) at an elevation of 125 feet (38 m) above mean sea level. It has two asphalt paved runways: 1/19 is 5,002 by 100 feet (1,525 x 30 m) and 14/32 measures 5,115 by 150 feet (1,559 x 46 m).[1]

For the 12-month period ending December 31, 2007, the airport had 128,875 aircraft operations, an average of 353 per day: 95% general aviation, 4% air taxi, 1% scheduled commercial and <1% military. At that time there were 350 aircraft based at this airport: 86% single-engine, 11% multi-engine, 2% jet, 1% glider and <1% helicopter.[1]

Future expansion

Airport officials are expanding the current terminal[3] from 9,000 square feet (840 m2) to 14,000 square feet (1,300 m2).[4] They hope to complete the project by mid-2010.

The airport is actively engaged in securing additional commercial air service, with goals of both increasing the number of flights to their current destinations and adding new destinations. These hoped-for destinations include:
