The Airport Department is responsible for the management and administration of the Airport 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 establish the minimum requirements to be met by an entity as a condition for the privilege to conduct an aeronautical activity or provide a commercial aeronautical service at the Airport.
For further information or explanation please contact Assistant Airport Director Hazel Johns, 805-967-7111 or HJohns@SantaBarbaraCA.gov.
Airport Film Permits are issued to professional and student photographers wishing to film on Airport property for commercial, non-profit or educational purposes.
