Someone who hangs around the airport a lot. Generally, more ramp rats will be found in smaller, friendlier airports, where there are flight schools and such to mooch coffee off of.

The ramp is the large concrete area where planes are parked. Contrary to it's name, ramps are usually fairly flat.

See airport bum.
