Advantage :: Burning Man Flights Black Rock City
As the only Burner-owned, Burner-operated air service, we’ve done our best over the past eight years to offer the best prices and services combined with the highest level of safety, honesty, integrity, and fun. Our thanks has been reflected in the thousands of smiles of our customers as they see Black Rock City from the air, the relief of the artists and theme camp members whose critical parts we’ve flown in, and the gratitude of the participants whose emergencies required immediate transport home.
Little did we know what we were flying into when we launched our very first charter flight to the Burn in 2005, but we liked what we saw so much that we stayed. Since then, we’ve built and donated the Black Rock City air terminal, sited runways, published approaches and an air-to-ground communications manual, and worked every year with BRC Airport and the FAA to improve air safety. (We’ve also created two theme camps, four mutant vehicles, and serious art, but that’s another story.)
We listened carefully to your feedback. You asked for more seats and more flights (yes, we ran out in 2012). You asked for earlier confirmed bookings. You asked for larger aircraft. You asked to be able to move larger groups to and from the playa at the same time. You asked for nonstops to the playa from LA, the Bay Area, SoCal, and the Pacific Northwest. You asked for better check-in facilities on the playa. Well... They're all here for 2013!
We offer up to twenty flights daily between Reno-Tahoe International Airport and Black Rock City before, during, and after the event. We transport participants, City builders, artists, and theme camps that help make it all happen. We also fly supply trips bringing construction materials, food, and time-critical equipment to the event. We’ve even flown in aircraft tires, spray rigs, and lift jacks!
Our aircraft for this route include Cessna Turbo StationAir 206, Turbo 207, and Kodiak K100. They have room for four to nine passengers.

Black Rock City Airport collects usage fees from passengers on arrival (Did you know that BRC Airport is mostly self-funding?). Passengers are responsible for paying these fees to enter the event. Fees are payable to BRC Airport staff on arrival in cash. Fees have not been set for 2013 yet but they were $20 per person in 2012 as a reference point.

If you are connecting from the airlines, take a taxi from the baggage claim area to Atlantic.
Reno and Sparks are the last major populated areas before heading out to the playa. They are a major outpost for picking up goods as well as an excellent jump off point for Black Rock City. The following links offer some local businesses that can help you prepare for the playa.
