Aeronautics, Rail and Transit > Aeronautics > Airport Approach Plan Study

In 2018, the Bureau of Aeronautics, working with its consultant Jacobs Engineering Group and under a grant from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), completed a much-needed project to identify the buildable areas in the vicinity of some of its general aviation airports in compliance with FAA's land-use compatibility grant assurance.

The deliverables included an interactive, web-based system that allows the user to point to a location near one of these airports and compute the maximum building height while still staying underneath the airport's protected airspace. Interactive Airport Approach Map.

Static, non-interactive building height maps were also created. In addition, as municipalities update and revise their ordinances, those with airports within their boundaries or airspace that reaches into their municipalities from adjacent airports can now utilize template airport approach ordinance templates that meet FAA and NHDOT requirements. The updated airport approach plans that are referenced in the ordinance templates were also produced for these airports.

Finally, to help with outreach on land-use compatibility near airports, a brochure was produced that airports can use as they work to educate others on this important airport safety issue.
