Reno-Stead Airport General Aviation Minimum Commercial Standards

After a year of working with the Reno-Stead Airport (RTS) CEO Advisory Group, comprised of RTS Stakeholders, the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority Board of Trustees passed Resolution 534 adopting GA Commercial Minimum Standards (GAMS) on June 8, 2017. The RTS GAMS went into effect on July 1, 2017.

As a tenant and a consumer of commercial aeronautical services, it is incumbent upon you to ensure that when working with an aeronautical service provider that you are employing a provider of aeronautical services that is permitted to operate on RTS.  By way of example, this includes mechanics, detailers, flight instructors and landlords.

If you are providing commercial aeronautical services, it is required to complete the process to become properly permitted in order to continue to operate commercially at RTS.   The attached GAMS document provides detailed information regarding qualifications, insurance requirements and describes the process to become properly permitted.

If you are a landlord sub-leasing your hangar(s) it is necessary to complete the attached Private Hangar Rental Operator Permit Application as part of the requirements for sub-leasing your hangars to sub-tenants. In lieu of amending non-commercial leases to commercial leases, the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority (RTAA) has created a one-page permit application and a one-page revenue reporting form.

If you are a provider of other commercial aeronautical services at RTS, it is necessary to complete the attached RTS GAMS Application for Commercial Aeronautical Activities as part of the requirements for continuing to provide these commercial aeronautical activities at RTS.
