Research Projects

Best management considerations in evaluating proposed vertical development on or near airports with airspace impacts.

Establish for the end user a process that would assist airport sponsors and the FAA to evaluate whether a development project is a true hazard based on evaluating imaginary and TERPS surfaces, recognizing current conditions at the specific airport. A goal for this project would be to define a process by which the FAA would accept a sponsor lead approval of a design, that may or may not conform to strict interpretations of the local airspace requirements. This problem can provide research in whether protecting for TERPS and OEI emergency procedures would limit building heights around an airport more severely than FAA Part 77 evaluations.
