Calaveras County Airport (ICAO: KCPU, FAA LID: CPU), also known as Maury Rasmussen Field, is a public airport located four miles (6 km) southeast of the central business district of San Andreas, in Calaveras County, California, United States. It is owned by the County of Calaveras.[1]

Although most U.S. airports use the same three-letter location identifier for the FAA and IATA, Calaveras County Airport is assigned CPU by the FAA but has no designation from the IATA[2] (which assigned CPU to Cururupu, Maranhão, Brazil).[3]
