Each passenger may bring two 25-pound bags. Bags must be no larger than a standard carryon bag: 24 inches x 16 inches x 10 inches.
If you need to bring additional luggage, supplies or oversize items, your best bet is to book an entire aircraft and use the additional space and weight capacity to haul your stuff.

All Burning Man restricted items are banned from your flight. You can find a list of restricted items here.
Where do we land at Burning Man?
All passengers land at Black Rock City Airport (88NV), a temporary “dirt strip” airport that is constructed only for use during Burning Man.
How do I get from Black Rock City Airport to my camp?
BRC Airport is over a mile away from most camp sites. There are usually mutant vehicles gifting rides to arriving passengers, but the safest bet is to arrange to have someone from your camp pick you up at your scheduled arrival time. You will want to arrange this prior to arriving at Burning Man as mobile phones will not work at the event itself.
Who is flying my plane?
Our pilots are experienced ex-military and/or airline transport pilots with extensive experience in mountain, desert and backcountry operations.
How are the aircraft maintained?
We use only the best aircraft provided by our charter partners. These aircraft are safe and meticulously maintained to the highest standard possible in accordance with FAA part 135 regulations.
