Airport Organization 7 FAR Part 150, Airport Noise Compatibility Planning. Part 150 applies to the airport noise com- patibility planning activities of public-use airports, including heliports. It outlines the proce- dures for developing and submitting airport noise compatibility programs. FAR Part 151, Federal Aid to Airports. Part 151 provides detailed information regarding FAA airport construction and development grants. It also specifies that all airport development under the federal-aid airport program must be done in accordance with an approved airport layout plan. Each airport layout plan and any changes to the layout are subject to FAA approval. This part also lists the advisory circulars that are incorporated in the airport development standards. FAR Part 152, Airport Aid Program. Part 152 applies to airport planning and development under the Airport and Airway Development Act of 1970, as amended. It outlines eligibility requirements and application procedures; funding, accounting, and reporting requirements; nondiscrimination in airport aid programs; suspension and termination of grants; and energy conservation programs. FAR Part 157, Notice of Construction, Alteration, Activation, and Deactivation of Airports. Part 157 defines the requirements for notifying the FAA when proposing to construct, alter, activate, or deactivate a civil or joint-use (civil/military) airport or to alter the status of such an airport. FAR Part 170, Establishment and Discontinuance Criteria for Air Traffic Control Services and Navigational Facilities. Part 170 sets the federal criteria for the establishment of air traffic control services. FAR Part 171, Non-Federal Navigation Facilities. Part 171 establishes procedures for requests for instrument flight rules (IFR) procedures, minimum requirements for approval, performance requirements, installation requirements, and maintenance and operations requirements for non-federal aids to navigation. This could include VHF omnidirectional range (VOR) facilities, nondirectional radio beacons, instrument leading system (ILS) facilities, microwave landing sys- tem (MLS) facilities, and others. State and Local Regulations Individual states and local units of governments may have additional rules and regulations to comply with. These may cover stormwater runoff and wetland protection, zoning, labor require- ments and wage rates, working hours, product use, noise ordinances, and other issues. State aeronautics offices typically work with local airports to educate them about these rules and regulations. Some states require airports to have a license to operate. State airport conferences can be a valuable tool for learning about current requirements and for communicating with other air- ports about suggestions for meeting those standards. Check with the state aeronautics contact and local jurisdictions for rules that apply in a specific area.
