Airport Minimum Standards for Commercial Aeronautical Activity Project

The Friedman Memorial Airport Authority (FMAA) is responsible for the management and administration of the Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN) which includes operation, maintenance, and capital improvement of aviation buildings and facilities.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) places the responsibility with the Airport operator to ensure that adequate aeronautical services and facilities are available on a fair and reasonable basis to all aviation users.

To encourage the safe and orderly development of the Airport and its operation, the FAA recommends that Minimum Standards for Commercial Aeronautical Activity be developed. Airport Minimum Standards are the criteria established by an airport owner as the minimum requirements that must be met by businesses in order to engage in providing commercial aeronautical activity at SUN. 

The current “Amended Minimum Standards for the Conduct of Commercial Aeronautical Services”  for the Airport were last amended in 1997 and are no longer sufficient to address the evolving airport and regulatory environment. This project will result in new Airport Minimum Standards for SUN.

Stakeholder Outreach

Engaging airport stakeholders is an important part of the development of the new Airport Minimum Standards to solicit input and answer questions. To this end, FMAA will hold two (2) dedicated  Stakeholder Outreach meetings to engage stakeholders prior to considering the adoption of the new Airport Minimum Standards by FMAA.

The meetings will be held virtually on Tuesday, December 14, 2021, at 5:30 pm and Tuesday, January 4, 2022, at 4:00 pm.
