NASAO & Aviation Career Services (ACS) Present:
Airport Compliance A & B Webinars
March 22, 2017 at 2:00PM CT / 3:00PM ET
April 12, 2017 at 2:00PM CT / 3:00PM ET
NASAO and Aviation Career Services present a series of interactive webinars in Airport Compliance to help prepare you for assisting your airports in understanding and meeting their obligations to the FAA.
As a condition for accepting a grant from the FAA, airports are expected to comply with a wide variety of rules, regulations, policies, and procedures. NASAO and ACS present, in two parts, an overview of the Airport Compliance Program and discuss a few of the areas that trouble airports and state transportation agencies in meeting their obligations to the FAA.
Airport compliance is a program rooted in Federal law and managed by the FAA. The program serves to protect the public interest in civil aviation and ensure compliance with applicable Federal laws, rules, and policies. Airports “assure” the FAA they will comply by agreeing to Grant Assurances when they accept a grant from the FAA. But, how many airport operators really understand these assurances? How many are actually prepared to perform the required activities to be fully in compliance? These webinars will discuss the program and some of the easiest ways airport operators can fall out of compliance.
Part A will be an overview of the Compliance Program and the associated Grant Assurances with highlighted focus on challenging areas.
Part B will be a follow on and discuss some of the issues, airports and state agencies supporting those airports, have trouble meeting. Participants will have the opportunity to download the FAA’s Airport Compliance Manual and several case studies that will be discussed.
At the end of this webinar, participants will leave with the ability to:
