    Near me i have a small general aviation airport. No tower or anything. What are the rules? By mom dads there is a bigger airport (tower etc) and we can and get a time to fly. Just curious about smaller ones and fly in airports

    You still need to find a phone number and alert them to the fact that you will be flying.

    Did you check the B4UFLY app? See what is says about flying in that area.

    You should read AC 91-57A. If it's an airport, then you have to notify them somehow, tower or no tower.
