Airport development - both aeronautical or non-aeronautical – has required formal FAA review and approval. Section 163 of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 fundamentally changed the regulatory environment for airport development projects. This provision was intended to provide U.S. airports with both flexibility and relief from federal regulatory oversight for non-aeronautical projects on non-federally obligated land. As with any new introduction, the FAA was tasked with interpretation and application and developed new oversight and approval processes.

This on-demand presentation will help sponsors and consultants alike better understand aspects that may be perceived as challenging. Section 163 still offers to substantially expedite certain airport development projects, add new flexibility, and give airports a far more competitive process for encouraging real estate development. Learn how to navigate the waters with lessons learned and best practices to assist your airport partners. 


At the end of this on-demand webinar, you will be able to:
• Explain Section 163 and FAA implementation guidance - what it really “applies” to and means for airport land and development.
• Explore how Section 163 is playing out so far, including practical observations of challenges airports are experiencing with the FAA’s implementation.
• Identify solutions airports and the consulting community are using to address challenges.
• Discuss best practices consultants can draw upon to assist sponsors (and the FAA) with this process.
