The McDermitt State Airport was originally constructed by the Board of Aeronautics in 1967. In 1986, in conjunction with the FAA and Humboldt County, Nevada, a new, relocated and expanded runway was constructed at the airport. The airport is located on the Oregon-Nevada border, west of U.S. Route 95. The 1990 NPIAS identified McDermitt State Airport as a general aviation facility.
The location of McDermitt State Airport is important to the State's airport system from a geographic coverage and access standpoint. The airport is located approximately 40 miles south of Rome State Airport and 75 miles north of Winnemucca Municipal Airport in Winnemucca, Nevada. McDermitt State Airport is categorized as a Level 4 airport and should continue to be included in the NPIAS.
