Q: How long will I have to wait before a space opens for me?
A: While there are no exact estimates, hangar turnover is averaging less than 1 per year (2018-20). Tie-downs are averaging between 2-4 per year.
Q: Can I put myself down twice on the same list?
A: Yes. Each instance will require its own separate application and maintenance fees. Each space would have a separate license agreement.
Q: Can I switch from one wait list to another (between hangar and tie-down)?
A: Yes. You will forfeit your current position and be placed at the end of the list you're switching to. No additional payment is necessary. This is an irrevocable decision.
Q: Is transient parking space available at the GA West Ramp?
A: No. The city does not provide any transient parking space at the GA Ramp. Persons interested in transient parking must contact one of the FBO's on the field.
Q: I am a tenant. How do I terminate my space agreement?
A: Follow the process outlined in this document.
