The Mefford Field Airport is a general aviation facility actively used by both local and transient aircraft with an estimated 30,000 annual operations. It provides a fixed base of operations for the Tulare Mosquito Abatement District and seven aviation related commercial enterprises. Included within the 180 acre facility are six conventional hangar buildings, two ten unit T-hangars and twelve single engine individual hangar units. The objectives of the City are to implement provisions of the Airport Master Plan.
The Tulare Aviation Committee, a five member advisory board appointed by the City Council, is charged with the responsibility of recommendation to the City Council in all areas related to airport use, improvements and development.
At the present time, Valley Aircrafts holds a concessionaire agreement with the City for the operation of a self service Jet A and AVGAS aircraft fueling facility at the airport.
