Sonoma Valley Airport (FAA LID: 0Q3) is a public-use airstrip opened on August 1959 in Schellville, Sonoma, California, United States. Located 4.14 nmi (7.67 km) south of central district of Sonoma (4.76 mi, 7.67 km)[1] and 26.9 nmi (49.8 km) north of San Francisco (30.94 mi, 49.8 km), the airfield offers two asphalt runways, of which the 17/35 is restricted, with prior permission required.
Open to public use for light aircraft, Sonoma Valley Airport does not allow ultralight and rotorcraft operations, except for MEDEVAC or law enforcement helicopters.

There are no night operations. Flying hours begin at morning civil twilight and end at evening civil twilight.

Among other fixed-wing aircraft, vintage planes can be seen on Sonoma Valley's apron, such as a fully restored, flying Curtiss P-40, a North American SNJ-4, three Boeing-Stearman PT-17 biplanes, a Globe Swift, a Cessna 195, a Douglas DC-3, a Dornier Do 27 or a Seabee amphibious. Others are being restored, like a Howard DGA-15.
