Use Agreement ***Advanced reservations and our approval are required for camping and or courtesy van use***
The purpose of this agreement is to set forth the conditions under which the Aviation City pilot shelter/camping area may be used. The entire campsite and related support structures were built and funded by Friends of Arcadia Airport, Inc. Its intended use is for aviation related events which will help grow general aviation and our airport. Persons using the area do so at their own risk. Arcadia Airport is not responsible for any use of the facility or for any aircraft parked or tied down at the site while using the facility. There is a $10 fee per campsite per night. Your payment will go to help pay the rent, insurance, mowing and maintaining the site etc. We request an additional donation if you use any of our other supplies like, fire wood, charcoal, propane camp stove, large 5 ft griddle or large tent etc. Reservations are required for day tripper groups as well. We request a donation from each person to help cover our costs to keep the facility open to the GA community. There is a secure drop box in the pilot shelter for tie down fees and donations.
If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to Friends of Arcadia Airport, Inc. to help us support Aviation City we can give you the necessary paperwork for the IRS.
The pilot shelter/camping area is for the explicit use of the flying public and shall only be used for aviation related functions. Those functions include:
- Meetings and other organized functions of pilot or aviation related organizations such as Friends of Arcadia Airport, Inc., the RAF, AOPA, EAA, FSAACA or other recognized aviation groups. Ground school and air safety seminars.
- Overnight camping for visiting pilots and their passengers.
- The pilot shelter/camping area shall not be used for functions such as weddings, company picnics, family picnics or reunions even if an aircraft is involved or the principal organizer or other member of the group is a pilot or aircraft owner.
