The Friedman Memorial Airport Authority (FMAA) is responsible for the management and administration of the Friedman Memorial Airport (SUN) which includes operation, maintenance, and capital improvement of aviation buildings and facilities.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) places the responsibility with the Airport operator to ensure that adequate aeronautical services and facilities are available on a fair and reasonable basis to all aviation users.
To encourage the safe and orderly development of the Airport and its operation, the FAA recommends that Minimum Standards for Commercial Aeronautical Activity be developed. Airport Minimum Standards are the criteria established by an airport owner as the minimum requirements that must be met by businesses in order to engage in providing commercial aeronautical activity at SUN.
The prior “Amended Minimum Standards for the Conduct of Commercial Aeronautical Services” for the Airport was last amended in 1997 and were no longer sufficient to address the evolving airport and regulatory environment. This project resulted in new Airport Minimum Standards for SUN.
