Abstract : The promises made to the FAA by airport operating authorities, which are found in grants-in-aid, or as a result of certification under 14 C.F.R. Part 139, are more than agreements for construction compliance. They can prove to be the basis of multi-million dollar lawsuits where hazards exist in the airport environment, and are found by courts to be the proximate cause of an aviation accident.
