The Traditional Paragraph

New Airports

Proponents wishing to build a new airport must file a Notice of Landing Area Proposal (FAA Form 7480-1), a Landing Area Sketch, and location plotted on a copied portion of a 7-1/2 minutes USGS Quadrangle Map (usually available at your county USDA Soil Conservation Service). The information must be submitted at least 90 days in advance of the day that the work is to begin. Heliport proponents must submit the Notice of Landing Area Proposal (FAA Form 7480-1), a 7-1/2 minute quad map, and a sketch or plan showing the relationship of the helipad to hospital building, parking areas, and surrounding structures.
