Tenant Access Remains Open


Punta Gorda Airport remains OPEN for tenants to access to their leased hangars and facilities. Unless notified otherwise, tenant badges are active and should be operating normally. We have provided the Sheriff’s Office with direction on how to identify essential employees by their badge, so they will be able to differentiate tenants from essential employees if patrolling onsite. While T-Hangar tenants are not essential employees, the airport itself is still considered essential infrastructure AND tenants are not restricted from flying their private aircraft. We recommend tenants have a reason for going to their hanger (i.e. flying, retrieving something) and use [...]
