Inbound, Ground & Parking Procedures

Inbound traffic will first listen to AWOS (119.625). It will be updated throughout the day. After listening to AWOS, announce your intentions on CTAF (122.975) for entering the traffic pattern. Buckeye Municipal Airport is an uncontrolled airfield and will remain so throughout the event.

The airport will be closed to all traffic during the air show on Saturday and Sunday from noon until approximately 2:00pm.

Upon landing, make sure to display one of the following signs in your aircraft windshield so it is visible to ground personnel and monitor ground operations (121.05). Use one of the links below to print the sign that corresponds to your aircraft parking need (please print using landscape orientation):
