Welcome to Yolo County Airport

Yolo County Airport (KDWA) is a General Aviation airport, nestled in the heartland of Yolo County, 8 miles southwest of Woodland and 4 miles west of Davis, California. Known for it’s rich military history during the Second World War, this airport offers a 6,000 foot runway, FBO services, and aircraft hangar space.  Non-aviation services are also available and we would be interested in welcoming new opportunities.

The airport is currently undergoing improvements, especially in runway and taxiway upgrades and airfield drainage. Recently the field was secured by a perimeter fence with electronic gate access and the new fence adds greatly to the overall security of property on the field and to the safety of all who use the airport.

Airport Access

Although Yolo County Airport is a General Aviation airport, the aviation areas on the field are secured. Non-tenant users wishing access may contact our FBO, Davis Flight Support (530-759-8766) to receive instructions to access the field. The links below are provided for specific information on the rules of the airport.

As a new tenant, complete the Gate Access Agreement form and submit to:
