FBO Check-in:
All pilots are requested to check in at the FBO Customer Service counter on arrival to provide local contact information, service requirements, and departure information to aid in providing timely service and managing the ramp space.

Fuel Orders:
Fuel orders are taken at the FBO customer service counter only and must be recorded on a Fuel Order form. For your convenience, you may place your fuel order here. Your order will go directly to Customer Service.  Please indicate on the form that you would like a confirmation that your order has been received and make sure you receive the confirmation. Fuel servicing is provided on a first come, first served priority based on departure requirements. To meet your fueling requirements in a timely manner, we will have additional fuel trucks and line personnel on duty.

Towing Aircraft:
Aiken Aviation has plenty of room for aircraft parking; however, there may be times when line personnel need to move parked aircraft to make the most efficient use of ramp space or to move up an aircraft to prepare for departure. Pilots are requested to leave their aircraft configured to tow. When you check in at the FBO customer service counter, please let a Customer Service Representative (CSR) know if the aircraft is not configured to tow, if you would like to be contacted before moving your aircraft, or if you have special concerns about towing the aircraft. For your convenience, we have wheel chocks available.

Ramp (Parking) Area:
Ramp (parking) areas are congested with aircraft, vehicles, and pedestrians. The ramps are non-movement areas and are not controlled by Air Traffic Control (ATC). Pilots operating in these areas do so at their own risk. When taxiing in a parking area, be alert for parked aircraft, taxiing aircraft, aircraft with engines running, and vehicle and pedestrian traffic. Taxiing during hours of darkness or limited visibility is more demanding and requires greater attention. Pilots are reminded to contact Aiken Unicom (122.8) prior to entering an active taxiway.

Landing Fees:
The City of Aiken does not impose fees on any aircraft landing at the Aiken Municipal Airport regardless of weight or size.

Helicopter Traffic:
Helicopter traffic will not use the normal designated helicopter parking area. Helicopter pilots should follow the line personnel instructions and anticipate parking in the flagged grass areas.

Restricted Operations:
Formation flights, practice approaches, and touch-and-go operations are prohibited from April 6-14, 2014.
