The government is giving this airstrip to private investors for setting up their pilot training institutes and aircraft maintenance engineering institutes. Previously, the procedure for private use of the airstrip was lengthy: The owner of the private aircraft had to contact the respective district magistrate who would further contact the directorate which would take the measures required for landing of the aircraft. Now, according to the new order, the directorate will only give its nod and the institutes will take care of the rest.In 2003, the state government had issued similar orders exclusively for people from the film industry. The charges were Rs 200 per landing along with Rs 1,000 per day for shooting at the air strip. The airstrip was, however, never used for shooting. The government has also decided to give subsidy in the landing and parking for ‘cross- country flying’ purposes, which means flying trainer aircraft from one aerodrome to another. Such aircraft will be charged half of the normal landing and parking fee, which will be Rs 250 for landing and Rs 100 per day for parking after two days of free parking. 
There are no scheduled flights. The airport is used by private and chartered planes.
