Airport and Aviation Resource Materials, Documents and Studies

Documents, studies and other listed reference materials are designed to assist airport sponsors, state agencies, counties, cities and towns or other interested parties in understanding processes and land use practices utilized to protect and enhance airports as significant local, regional and state facilities. The list represents selected current studies and resources available across the United States. The contents of these documents may not by themselves meet laws or regulations adopted by the State of Washington or reflect the views of WSDOT Aviation or policies of the Federal Aviation Administration.

Additionally, WSDOT Aviation offers a technical assistance program to assist local jurisdictions and airport sponsors to protect and discourage incompatible land uses adjacent to public use airports consistent with state law. Where interpretations of law are involved, local jurisdictions, airport sponsors and other should consult their own legal counsel. The Land Use Compatibility Program addresses three major areas, which include height hazards, safety and noise.
