Can I install a fuel tank or dry shed on my Tiedown space?

What are the requirements for renting a tiedown space?
You must own or lease an airworthy aircraft that you intend to park in the space and list on your permit. In addition, the aircraft must be float-equipped if you are renting a float space. "Airworthy" and "float-equipped aircraft" are defined in 17 AAC 42.699 as follows:
"Airworthy" means the condition of an aircraft that is legally authorized and mechanically capable of flight through the air.
"Float-equipped aircraft" means an aircraft that is on floats or is equipped for floats that are temporarily off the aircraft but are on the assigned tiedown space.
What kind of documentation do I need to prove that I am the owner or lessee of the aircraft listed on my permit?
You must provide one of the following for each aircraft you list on your permit:
Can I rent out my tiedown space or let others use my tiedown space free of charge?
You may not transfer your permit, sublet the space, or allow a person to park an aircraft not listed on the permit in your space.
Can I add another person, such as my spouse or a friend, to my tiedown permit?
You may add another person to your permit only if that person separately applies and qualifies for a permit. If a person is added to your permit, that person must comply with all requirements applicable to your permit, including being an owner or lessee of an aircraft listed on the permit. Transferred spaces are not permissible without prior authorization. Please contact the Leasing Office with any changes that may occur.
When will my permit expire? How do I apply for a new one?
All permits will expire on March 31, 2025. A permittee who wishes to retain their tiedown space after the expiration of their permit must apply for a subsequent permit. The application will be approved if it is determined that 1) the space is not needed for airport expansion, development, operation, or other state purpose, and 2) the permittee qualifies for a permit and is in compliance with the tiedown regulations. The Leasing Office will send notices and application forms to permittees before their permits expire for their convenience in applying for a new permit.
Where can I move snow from my tiedown space in the winter?
FAI tiedown permitees may remove snow from their spaces and position it for later removal by Airport staff, provided it is kept as close as possible to the tiedown space (click here for image). Snow may not be moved or positioned across adjoining tie-down spaces, taxiways, taxilanes, parking rows, nor in any manner that creates a hazard or blocks vehicle or aircraft access to the parking row. Snow piles must be kept as low as possible, no higher than 36". FAI staff will remove these piles as the workload permits. For additional information see Operations Order 2.4.
How do I safely taxi out of my space?
For safe taxiing out of one's tiedown space, use the aisle centerlines and avoid electric pedestals. Under no circumstances can you drive across rows. Click here for detail diagram.
