Plymouth Airport Event Requirements

The Plymouth Airport Commission may grant permission for various events on airport property (in airport building or accessing/on airport land) which the Commission determines is in the best interest of the Plymouth Airport. This permission will be based on a numbers of criteria areas. The Commission reserves the right to waive certain requirements on a case by case basis.

Primary Criteria: The principal criteria by which the Commission will consider allowing an event to take place on airport property is that the event in some manner helps or improves the situation of the airport overall with regards to the aviation users and or the general public. Events which are specifically aviation related shall be given priority. Events which may have an adverse impact on the airport overall and or based tenants shall be discouraged and not allowed.

General Criteria:

  • The Commission requires a minimum of 45 days notice for requests which will attract medium to large groups of attendees.
  • Events sponsors shall be non-profit entities, “for profit “events will be approved only when there is an overwhelming positive impact for the airport as determined by the Commission.
  • Event sponsors shall provide adequate insurance naming the Plymouth Airport Commission, Plymouth Municipal Airport, Town of Plymouth and the Airport Manager as additional insured with regards to the event. The insurance minimums shall be 1 million dollars or as specified by the Commission.
