Show Complete Document History
The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers the minimum requirements for the design of a recreational airpark intended to service any aircraft with specified stall speed. Recreational Airparks may provide commercial services in support of the recreational operation of light sport aircraft, including, but not limited to: flight instruction, introductory flights, aircraft rental, glider towing, and maintenance services. An airpark site should take into consideration the need to ensure safe approaches and departures of aircraft. Each facility shall have a means by which a person can contact an appropriate authority in case of an emergency. One example would be a public phone. Each facility shall have a functioning wind sock. Runway location and orientation are important to airport safety, efficiency, economics, and environmental impact. The threshold should be located at the beginning of the marked runway surface. Fuel storage facilities are required to be placed in a location outside of the runway and taxiway safety areas.
