Sky Ranch Airport (FAA LID: 3L2), also known as Sky Ranch Estates, is a privately owned, public use airport located two nautical miles (4 km) southwest of the central business district of Sandy Valley, a town in Clark County, Nevada, United States.[1]

This field should not be confused with the former Sky Ranch Airport (1930s - 1970) which was located 7 miles (11 km) north of Sparks, Nevada, at which the first two "Reno" National Air Races were flown.

Sky Ranch Airport covers an area of 158 acres (64 ha) at an elevation of 2,599 feet (792 m) above mean sea level. It has two runways: 3/21 is 3,340 by 45 feet (1,018 x 14 m) with an asphalt surface and 12/30 is 3,300 by 105 feet (1,006 x 32 m) with a dirt surface.[1]

For the 12-month period ending January 31, 2011, the airport had 3,000 general aviation aircraft operations, an average of 250 per month. At that time there were 71 aircraft based at this airport: 83% single-engine, 9% multi-engine, 4% ultralight, 3% helicopter, and 1% jet.[1]
