Aviation Capital Improvement Program



Private citizens, groups and organizations can play a role in their local airport’s development through the Adopt-an-Airport Program. Eligible adopters commit to beautify an airport, enhance its image and increase public awareness for two-year terms.


Publicly-owned airports included in the Texas Airport System Plan are eligible. The following groups are eligible to adopt airports through the program:

  • Members or employees of civic and nonprofit organizations
  • Employees of private businesses and governmental entities
  • Families

Note: A group must be located or reside in the city or county in which the adopted airport is located.


The authorized representative of a new or renewing adoption group must submit an application to the district coordinator of the highway district in which the airport is located.
