Airport Finance 17 management can contact its local FAA airports district office (ADO) for assistance in develop- ing reasonable minimum standards. Minimum standards are often made part of an airport's commercial leases and address requirements such as intended scope of activities, site development standards, personnel expe- rience, financial stability, and insurance.

Entities established as flying clubs for the benefit of their members should not be authorized to provide commercial services to the public.

Airport owners of federally obligated airports are required by grant assurances to establish and enforce fair, equal, and not unjustly discriminatory airport rules and regulations.
