Burning Man is an event where a temporary community is erected annually in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. It is dedicated to experimentation in community and art.
At Burning Man the community explores various forms of artistic self-expression, created in celebration for the pleasure of all participants.
Since Burning Man is a temporary community in a very remote location, flying directly into the event is unique & sometimes quite challenging.

Each year, Burning Man creates a temporary airport to accept flights during Burning Man. The official airport for Burning Man is the Black Rock City Municipal Airport. However, flying directly into the airport can prove difficult.
The Federal Aviation Administration officially recognizes the airport with the identifier 88NV. It is non-towered, so pilots communicate via a Common Traffic Advisory Frequency for safety information as well as critical details about the landing pattern.
A pair of mile-long runways are roughly outlined in the desert during the event, one strictly for take-offs and the other strictly for landings, and is not lighted.
Because of the unique air traffic and safety issues associated with this unique airport, only a small handful of pilots and aircraft are allowed to use the airport. Additionally, due to the changes to the surface each year, information about the airport is subject to change, making it unusable some years.
With changing rules from the organizers of Burning Man, it can prove challenging to charter a private jet to the festival.
