These Rules and Regulations, and any amendments thereto, are designed to protect the public health, safety, interest, and general welfare at Ryan Airfield and to restrict or prevent any activity or action which would interfere with the safe, orderly, and efficient use of the Airport by its passengers, operators, tenants, and users.
It is not the intent of these Rules and Regulations to excuse any entity from performing any obligation it may have under any agreement the entity has with Tucson Airport Authority (TAA), whether the agreement is in existence on the date of the adoption of these Rules and Regulations or entered into at any time thereafter.

TAA may remove or evict from the Airport any person who knowingly, willfully or recklessly violates any rule or regulation prescribed herein, or any rule or regulation in effect by the federal government or the State of Arizona, and may deny use of the Airport and its facilities to any such person if it is determined that such denial is in the public interest.
1.4 Variance or Waiver
TAA may vary from the provisions of these Rules and Regulations from time to time when circumstances may require.

Because of the unique facts and circumstances surrounding a variance, a variance in one instance or under certain terms and conditions does not mandate a variance under similar or related circumstances, terms, or conditions if TAA's experiences or the differences in circumstances (however slight) lead TAA to decline to make a similar variation in the future.
