Mefford Field 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-hangar and twelve
single engine individual hangar units. The objectives of the city
are to implement provisions of the Airport Master plan.
The Tulare Aviation Commission, 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 Aircraft holds a concessionaire
agreement with the City for physical operation of that facility.
