Pacific City State Airport


Pacific City is located in southern Tillamook County, along the Nestucca Bay inlet from the Pacific Ocean. Pacific City State Airport is located one mile south of the City on a 15-acre site. The Airport is part of the State's coastal airport system, situated between Tillamook Airport and Siletz Bay State Airport. The Airport is approximately 75 miles southwest of Portland. Pacific City State Airport is owned by the ODA. The main industry in the Pacific City area is tourism, although there are also commercial fishing, dairy, and logging operations. Many retirees live in the community. Major points of interest include Three Capes Scenic Loop, Camp Kiwanda, and Hay Stack Rock.

The Airport has one runway that is 1,875 feet long by 30 feet wide. The runway, Runway 14/32, is oriented in a northwest-southeast direction. The runway is paved but has no runway lighting. The Airport handles an estimated 2,000 general aviation operations annually. It is estimated that 89 percent of these operations are itinerant. Approximately five aircraft are based at the Airport.

The Oregon Department of Aviation owns and operates 28 airports. Of these, nine airports have been designated as warning airports. These airports do not meet normal dimensional standards and have conditions that require specific pilot knowledge. They require special techniques and procedures to use safely and may not be usable by many aircraft under normal conditions.

If you have not flown into Cascade Locks, Crescent Lake, McKenzie Bridge, Owyhee Reservoir, Pacific City, Pinehurst, Santiam Junction, Toledo, or Wakonda Beach recently we encourage you to contact us at (800) 874-0102 to get the latest information on them.

We also encourage you to use the "sign in" boxes we have at some of the state airports. This allows us to better assess the level of use at some of our smaller airports. If you observe any problems at any of the state airports, please let us know so that we can correct the problem as soon as possible.

Pacific City State Airport, 6355 Pacific Ave, Pacific City, OR

Beginning May 11, 2019, Rowboat Gallery, in conjunction with Friends of the Pacific City State Airport, will be hosting an exhibit celebrating Pacific City’s commitment to its historic public airport. Titled Altitudes, this special event will showcase art related to the airport, airplanes, aerial perspectives of Pacific City, and other artistic interpretations of the theme.

The show will include work from a number of local artists, as well as artists represented by the gallery. Sally and Bob Rissel are providing vintage photographs and scale model aircraft. An opening reception at Rowboat Gallery is planned for May 11 beginning at 5:30 pm. The Headlands Coastal Lodge & Spa will also be displaying a selection of images from the show at their beautiful new hotel/restaurant overlooking Cape Kiwanda. To round out Altitudes, an installment of Rowboat’s popular Rock the Boat series will feature aviation-themed storytelling, scheduled for June 8th at 6:00 pm.

An advocacy group that included local residents, businesses, and northwest pilots came together in the Fall of 2017 to establish Friends of Pacific City State Airport in order to forestall the State’s intention to sell the airport property. FPCSA filed for non-profit corporation status in June 2018, and in September organized a well-attended work party to clear and clean up the entire airport property. Working extensively with the Oregon Department of Aviation, FPCSA was successful in getting official approval for its proposal to keep our airport within the State system.

The March 2019 issue of Oregon Department of Aviation’s Flightlines magazine has a cover feature on the history of the airport, additional stories about FPCSA, and a full-page map of the Pacific City area highlighting lodging, dining, shopping and other visitor attractions. Copies of the magazine will be available at the opening. An online version is at: FLIGHTLINES 2019.
