Adopt-An-Airport

The Adopt-An-Airport Program promotes airports and gives recognition to volunteers. It provides a means by which communities may become involved in their local airports and assist in the maintenance and beautification of airport facilities. It also promotes increased awareness of the advantages and economic impacts that airports have on their cities. Any public-use airport in Minnesota is eligible to participate in this program.

Local Civic Community Groups or Individuals Can Adopt-An-Airport

  • Volunteers assist the airport manager or operator with activities mutually agreed upon.
  • Promotes increased awareness of the advantages and economic impacts that airports have on their cities.
  • Educates the community on aviation and aviation careers and allows them to to learn what activities take place at an airport.
  • Both the airport and its volunteer groups receive signs indicating their participation in the program.
  • The signs can be placed in a conspicuous location such as the entrance to the airport.
