Dover Air Force Base, Delaware

The Civil Air Terminal is the civilian-use facility on the airfield at Dover Air Force Base and is operated in accordance with a joint-use agreement with the United States Air Force. Because it is located on a U.S. military installation, it is not open to civilian air traffic at will.  Those wishing to include the Civil Air Terminal in their flight plans must request, and receive, prior permission within 72 hours.  Seasonally, the Civil Air Terminal is the primary host for aircraft for NASCAR racing events and the Firefly Music Festival.
