MKC is closed to air carrier operations with more than 30 seats except with prior permission from the Airport Authority. It is simple to receive prior permission, or a "PPR", just call (816) 859-7600, (816) 859-7619, or (816) 289-2718 and we will work out the details with your flight dispatch.

Wash Bay
Located just north of T-Hangar G, the Kansas City Aviation Department has provided a single aircraft wash bay for our general aviation aircraft owners. This first come-first served, free amenity includes a hose and low pressure nozzle and drainage from the pavement through a oil/water separator to prevent hydrocarbons from directly entering the storm water drainage on the airport. The aircraft owner is responsible for providing their own cleaning supplies and ensuring the area is FOD-free when they are finished washing their aircraft.
