Decree No. 92/1970

Bs. As. 15/1/70

VISTO is informed by the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force, as proposed by the Minister of Defence, and


That the classification of airfields set up by Decree 8091/61 offers a little elastic frame that creates difficulties, as it prevents the establishment of public airfields, if certain services are not always essential and sometimes unnecessary.

That in practice such classification has not provided substantial benefits.

That the provision of article 13 of the same decree could not be applied in its entirety by imposing the disqualification of an important amount of public airfields, especially those where the activity of aeroclubs is preponderant.

It is necessary to classify aerodromes in order to the tax regulation of article 25 of the Customs Code, which determines that they are public or private, according to the use to which they are intended.

That Articles 5th and 6th of Decree 4141/44 regulated the identification of airfields and the latter was repealed by Decree 8091/61, thus leaving a void of rules for such identification.

There is a need for general administrative regulation, which allows for proper identification of airfields in national jurisdiction.

That the aerodromes should be enabled by contemplating, as far as possible, the uniformity sought by the International Civil Aviation Organization, through the 1944 Chicago Convention and their respective annexes.




Article 1 - Aerodromes shall be qualified as public or private according to the use to which they are intended.

Art. 2° ­ The identification of airports and airfields shall be carried out by adopting the name of the municipality, town or geographical accident closest to them or the most important town they serve.

Art. 3° − Entitlement of airfields shall be subject to prior compliance with the rules which, in such a way, are included in Annex 14 of the International Civil Aviation Convention, if there are no differences reported to the International Civil Aviation Organization.

Art. 4° − This decree does not modify the provisions of Decree 8310/1964 of the Act No. 13.041, nor does it modify the complementary and widening rules of the Act.

Article 5: The Command in Chief of the Air Force shall be the authority to apply the provisions contained in this decree.

Art. 6° . Default of Decree 8091 of 13 September 1961 and any other provision opposing the present.

Article 7: This decree shall be endorsed by the Minister of Defence and signed by the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force.

Art. 8° . Communicate, publish, give to the National Directorate of the Official Register and archívese.
