We hope you enjoy our new site. We will be adding new things so come back and check often. If you have any ideas on how we can improve the site, questions about Airport Operations, or Drone Activity, email us at Airport@auburnwa.gov
Attention Drone Users! Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS, AKA Drones) are required to abide by Federal Aviation Regulations set forth for proper and safe operation.
If you are unfamiliar with what requirements need to be met before operating a drone, please visit http://knowbeforeyoufly.org/
Once you have complied with all FAA requirements prior to flying a UAS/Drone, you are required to receive authorization from the Auburn Municipal Airport if operating within the five (5) mile radius of the airport itself.
If you are wanting to receive said permission from the Airport for Drone Operations, consider the following:
The aircraft being flown most be strictly for hobby and or recreational use.
The aircraft must operate in a manner that does not interfere with, and gives way to, any manned aircraft; and when flown within five (5) miles of the airport, the operator of the model aircraft provides the airport with prior notice of the operation including:
-Date and time of flight activity
-Location from the airport
-Operating altitudes (none will be authorized above 400 feet)
-Radius/routes of flight
-Name of pilot/operator
-Contact phone of pilot/operator
For those model aircraft operators flying from a permanent location within 5 miles of an airport should establish a mutually agreed upon operating procedure with the airport operator. Please contact the airport office to establish an operating procedure in advance of use.
FLY WASHINGTON PASSPORT PROGRAM
The Auburn Municipal Airport is the state Headquarters for The Fly Washington Passport Program. This program encourages pilots and aviation enthusiasts to explore Washington’s public-use airports. Beyond motivating pilots to fly, this program supports general aviation airports, area businesses, tourism, and provides flight planning, safety, and educational opportunities. The program relies on the voluntary participation of Washington’s public-use airports, pilots, aviation enthusiasts, and sponsors. The ultimate objective for this program is to increase aviation economic activity and enhance general aviation visibility.
Participants, using an official Fly Washington Passport Program booklet, collect “passport stamps” at enrolled public-use airports. Any licensed pilot from any state, and their passengers, may participate. Participants will earn levels of recognition and prizes as they explore the airports of Washington State.
Once you have collected enough stamps from airports across the State of Washington, bring your completed passport to the Airport Administration Office to redeem for your Jacket and or Gold Pin Reward!
