All vehicles operating on the AOA (airport ramp), except those under escort, must have company markings on both sides. The markings must have letters at least two inches high in a contrasting color that are visible from a distance of 50 feet. Acceptable markings are magnetic signs, window placards, or those painted directly on the vehicle.
Hand-generated signs are not authorized.
Airport-Issued Ramp Permits
All vehicles operating on the AOA, except those under escort, must also have an airport-issued ramp permit.
- Ramp permits are good for two years, unless issued to a contractor.
- Contractor ramp permits are good for the duration of the construction project. A deposit of $50.00 is required for each permit. The deposit is refunded when the project is closed out provided the ramp permit is returned.
Permits are available from the Access Control/ID Badging Office.
- Non-traditional vehicles operated on the air operations area are not required to have a ramp access permit BUT must still meet the requirements for company markings. A non-traditional vehicle is one that through original design, intent or manufacture, was not intended for use on public streets, such as ATV’s, belt loaders, tugs, forklifts, and golf carts.
- Equipment (backhoes, graders, etc.) that remains at the job site does not require a ramp permit and may be stored in the staging area; however, it must be identified with a company name or logo.
- Vehicles under escort are not required to have markings or a ramp permit.
