    Hello, i am about to get my conceled permit in the state of Florida, and im wonding if ill be allowed to have it at my job and so fourth. I work at a small airport (no comercial jets or anything, just the small stuff), and i would like to be able to have it at work sometimes and while im flying.

    I am also the pilot, and i frequently travel around the state...but dont go into international airports much, i usually do this in a cessna or similar type aircraft.

    What laws are their against having a ccw with me while i am at these airports? I couldnt find anything in the FAA reg's that says I as a pilot of my own plane cant have one.

    Thanks for the help, let me know!

    If it's not banned, it must be OK.

    IANAL, but I don't see a problem unless your travels will take to to airports which have "secure" areas - you know, metal detectors, passenger screening, commercial flights, etc.

    I carry daily at the General Aviation airport where I work and have flown all over the SE with my 1911 on my hip.

    Nary a problem.

    I did see a 'no guns' sign at an airport in NC once, but the sign suggested it was a local/municipal ordinance. I was only there for a few minutes to use the restroom, check weather and file a return flight plan...figured what they didn't know wouldn't hurt them and just minded my own business.

    As long as you stay concealed and don't try to carry the gun through a metal detector, you ought to be alright.

    I am hoping that I can spend a season doing flying work in Alaska, and keep a giant S&W .500 mag revolver on in the cockpit...THAT would be cool!

    the airport may have no gun policies which may or may not be enforcable according to state law, but there are no FAR's that restrict private firearms on private flights operating under part 91. part 121 and 135 operations have different rules though. its all in the FAR/AIM.
