Airport Driver Training Programs

In order to provide a safe operating environment for users of Chico Municipal Airport, and in compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations (FAR) Part 139.329, all airport users with access to the Airport Operations Area (AOA) are required to complete airport specific driver training every 12 - 24 consecutive calendar months. For this reason in order to be issued or to renew a gate access card you must first complete either the Chico Municipal Airport Non-Movement or Movement Area Driver Training Program.


Non-movement Area Driver Training

Non-movement area driver training is for pilots, tenants and their employees, operators, and other airport users who require access to their hangar, place of business, or parked aircraft.

Movement Area Driver Training

Movement area driver training is only required for emergency responders, airport, FAA and TSA personnel, and those whose job activities require driving on the taxiways, runways, and other airport movement areas which are under the control of the Air Traffic Control Tower. Movement Area Driver Training requires both a written test and a practical test. The practical test is given on Tuesday mornings at 9:00 a.m. Please contact Airport Field Supervisor Jim Koehler at (530) 624-1342 to schedule your practical test and to submit your written test for grading.
