NEW BUSINESSES AT VCB
The newest businesses at Nut Tree Airport are Power Aviation Services and CalStar Air Ambulance Services.  Power Aviation Services is able to service and maintain fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft . P.A.S. can be reached at (707) 469-7925.  Power Aviation Services is located in the large hanger north east of the fuel farm, behind Blue Ridge Aeronautics.  Power Aviation Services can also be found at Auburn Airport.  Our own Rusty Mayes can help you with your upcoming annual inspection as well as repair aircraft ailments.  They maintain turbine fixed wing and rotary wing aircraft.Go by and see them in hangar A4 at the Nut Tree Airport.

CalStar Shock/Trauma Air Ambulance Services is a non-profit corporation that provides much needed immediate emergency rescue services.  They are available 24/7 to the area.  Most helicopter ambulance programs contract for flight operations with an outside vendor. CALSTAR, however, operates under its own FAA Part 135 Air Carrier Certificate and is directly responsible for all aspects of flight operations and aircraft maintenance.  You can reach their home base at: (916) 921-4000

There are no restaurants on the field.  The airport is just over Interstate 80 from the factory outlets and many eating establishments.  The New Nut Tree development with theme park, retail outlets and future restaurants is just a couple hundred yards from the Airport.  Bring your sneakers and take a 5 minute walk to all sorts of excellent shops. The current shops at the Nut Tree include Best Buy, BevMo, Old Navy, Borders, Sport Chalet, Petsmart, HomeGoods and Pete's Coffee.  Restaurants include Finton's Creamery,  Villa Corona Mexican Restaurant,  Amici" East Coast Pizzeria and Panera Bread.
