Ramp (Parking) Area:

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.

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