McClellan Airfield (IATA: MCCICAO: KMCCFAA LID: MCC), known officially as McClellan Airport, is a county-owned public-use airport located six miles (10 km) northeast of the central business district of Sacramento, a city in Sacramento County, California, United States.[1]

The airport is on the former site of McClellan Air Force Base, which existed as a military base from 1939 to 2000. It was transferred to Sacramento County in 2000, as part of its conversion into McClellan Business Park. The airport is a public-use facility which operates as an uncontrolled airfield in what the FAA designates as Class "E" Airspace. Current airport tenants include Calstar, the California Department of Forestry, United States Coast Guard Air Station Sacramento and the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District.
