As U.S. airports continue to face significant funding challenges to implement capital improvements, many airports are pursuing options to convert land no longer needed for aeronautical purposes over to non-aeronautical uses, such as commercial development. Beware, the process of converting aeronautical land is complicated and often requires the preparation of a Federal Land Release and supporting environmental analysis. This ACC Institute online training program includes a panel of industry experts who have a detailed knowledge of FAA approval requirements, federal law on when land releases are needed, and the common risks and pitfalls experienced during the FAA approval process. Don’t miss your opportunity to get the facts straight!
At the end of this ACC Institute online training program, participants will be able to:
1. Identify FAA approval and land release requirements.
2. Cite applicable federal case law associated with the release or disposal of federal obligated airport property.
3. Describe common risks and pitfalls associated with the land release process for approval to use airport land for non-aeronautical purposes.
4. Summarize the lessons learned from an airport having recently completed the land release process.
