Learn the purpose of the MOS process, the importance they play on airport projects, and the potential impacts on the airport sponsor. Attendees will hear approaches to determination if a MOS is required, recommended timing for the MOS request, and the process for submitting a MOS. Learn the required level of FAA approval for different categories MOS requests, and typical timelines to expect based on the level of approval required. Presenters will discuss utilizing previously approved construction MOS (with known success) on future projects, the importance of identifying potential MOS early in the design and determining if necessary, and the importance of MOS timing for an airport.

• Explain the purpose of the MOS process and its importance to the sponsor. 
• Cite the difference between Approval and Conditional Approval and duration of approval validity.
