Tooele Valley Airport

Additional Information

Tooele Valley (Bolinder Field) is a public airport that was recently acquired by Salt Lake City Corporation, and is administered by the Salt Lake City Department of Airports. The airport is funded by revenue generated by the airlines that use Salt Lake City International Airport. No local taxes are used to fund the airport.

A master plan for the Tooele Valley Airport was completed in April 1994. The airport is listed in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems, the Utah Continuous Airport Systems Plan and the Metropolitan Airports Systems Plan (MASP).

The Tooele Valley airport is a general utility airport that serves the communities in the Tooele Valley as well as general aviation from the Salt Lake Valley and surrounding areas. The airport is located 21 nautical miles from Salt Lake City International Airport and 17 nautical miles from Salt Lake Airport II. Because Tooele Valley Airport is not affected the Salt Lake City Class B airspace, it is an attractive location and is used extensively for pilot training activities. It is also a reliever airport for Salt Lake City International Airport.

The airport has the potential for a possible based capacity of 50 civilian aircraft according to the 1994 master plan.

The 600 acre airport has one asphalt runway (17-35), 6,100-foot long, 100-foot wide. The published rated strength of the runway is 30,000 pounds. The runway is equipped with Medium Intensity Runway Lights (MIRL), Distance Remaining Signs, Runway End Indicator Lights (REIL), and Precision Approach Path Indicators (PAPI). UNICOM frequency is 123.00 with pilot activated lighting by clicking the microphone three times. There is also a Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) approach to the runway 17. One parallel taxiway and a system of connecting taxiways serve the runway. Field elevation is 4316' MSL. A Non-Directional Beacon (NDB) has been installed that operates of a frequency of 371.510, providing yet another approach to the airport. Other facilities include one Skydive support hangar, six privately owned hangars, and two aircraft-parking aprons. The Salt Lake City Department of Airports also has a large building that is used to house maintenance/snow removal equipment. Salt Lake City Department of Airports maintenance personnel from Salt Lake International Airport are responsible for snow removal and maintenance of the Tooele Valley Airport as necessary.

Skydive Utah operates at the airport with three full time employees.

There are 27 based civil aircraft. The Tooele Valley has an estimated 55,000 annual operations.
