Minimum Standards

SASO Minumum Standards Information

Minimum Standards are baseline requirements that an operator must meet in order to conduct commercial aeronautical activity at an airport. With tenant and stakeholder input, the Aviation Department has developed Minimum Standards to address activity at the three City of Phoenix airports. The City Council has formally adopted amending Section 4-160 of the Phoenix City Code by adding new minimum standards fees for certain types of service operators on October 8, 2008.

The amendments will implement new Minimum Standards fees developed by the Aviation Department for Specialized Aviation Service Operators (SASOs) and help the airport system be self-sustaining.

Fees established for the following service operators are:

Type of Operator Service Minimum Standards Fee
