Alturas Municipal Airport (ICAO: KAAT, FAA LID: AAT formerly O00), is a city-owned public-use airport located one nautical mile (1.85 km) west of the central business district of Alturas, a city in Modoc County, California, United States.[1] This airport is included in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems for 2009–2013, which categorizes it as a general aviation facility.[2]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Alturas Municipal Airport is assigned AAT by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[3] (which assigned AAT to Altay Airport in Altay, Xinjiang, China).[4]
