Where will the boundaries of the event be?
The event will take up most of the eastern section of the ramp beginning 775 feet east of the T-hangars all the way around to 150 feet northwest of Specialized Aero. Runway 8-26 and taxiways A and B will be closed beginning Friday, May 3 at 6:00 AM.
Where in the world is everybody going to park?
We have contracted the farmland between the ramp and the runway extending from taxiway A, across taxiway B to runway 13-31. Additionally, the ramp space beginning 100’ east of the T-hangars up to the western event boundary will be Preferred and ADA parking.
Will I be able to access my hangar throughout the weekend?
Certainly. If your hangar is within the boundaries of the event and you know you’re going to fly that during the hours of the event, we respectfully request that you reposition your plane to the western ramp, weather permitting, for the duration of the event so that you can more easily get to and from the movement areas. If this proves impractical or impossible, please contact Chief of Operations, Clayton Corn at email@example.com or call him at 512-757-5991 to make arrangements.
Will I be able to fly my plane that weekend?
Yes, at any time except for during the TFR which will be from 1:30 PM until 6:00 PM local. Other than that you will be able to access your aircraft and fly, but please note that our Public Safety Plan mandated by the Fire Marshal states that your airplane must be towed via taxiway A to a designated “Hot Ramp” area located adjacent to the intersection of taxiways A and C before proceeding under power. We will be working with the CAF and CAP to provide marshaling services and we will provide a tug vehicle for your convenience.
What if I’m inside the event boundary and I need to get multiple planes in and out for commercial operations?
First, let me state that we are here to shine a spotlight on the airport and your business and be as good of a neighbor as we can possibly be. We understand this event will be an inconvenience to a small number of airport tenants and we will do our level best to accommodate everyone’s concerns and needs. If this is of specific concern to you and feel special arrangements need to be made, please contact Chief of Operations, Clayton Corn at firstname.lastname@example.org or 512-757-5991 to discuss.
How can I get tickets to the event?
We are making the event free to airport tenants and business owners. Please email Chief of Operations, Clayton Corn at email@example.com or call him at 512-757-5991 to make arrangements.
How is everyone going to get on and off the field?
Tenants will be issued a Tenant Parking Pass and enter through the main airport gate of Hwy 21. Airport Dr. will be one-way with both lanes open. Please maneuver into the right-hand lane. With your Tenant Parking Pass visible, you will be routed by parking attendants to access to your business or hangar via Airport Dr. Access will be controlled at a gate to be located between Texas State Aviation and Redbird Skyport. Those needing access inside the event boundary will be issued a laminate allowing passage through the security checkpoint.
What if I’d like booth space to promote my business located on the airport?
We wholeheartedly invite you to participate! We’re more than happy to provide booth space at no cost to any airport business who wishes to exhibit. You must abide by all applicable laws and provide your own booth and materials, we will provide electricity if needed. Please contact Clayton Corn at firstname.lastname@example.org if this is something you’d like to take advantage of.
