Airport Permitting - Permit Revocation/Suspension

Site Approval

Pursuant to PUC 21668, the Department may revoke an Airport Permit if any of the conditions shown below are present.

  1. There has been an abandonment of a site or an airport.
  2. There has been a failure within the time prescribed to develop the site as an airport or to comply with the conditions of the approval as set forth in the permit.
  3. The airport or site no longer conforms to the minimum airport standards prescribed by the Department, or no longer complies with the conditions imposed in the Airport Permit or site approval.
  4. The owner or operator of a permitted airport has failed to comply with any rule or regulation of the Department.
  5. The site may no longer be safely used by the general public because of a change in physical or legal conditions either on or off the airport site.
Additionally, an airport owner may request, in writing, that the Department revoke (or suspend) their Airport Permit (CCR 3536).

Note: Failures to meet minimum airport standards and permit conditions may be discovered during airport inspections by Department personnel. The Department may summarily revoke a permit for public safety considerations. Otherwise, the Department will provide prior notice and the opportunity, upon request, for a hearing by the Department to determine whether the revocation shall remain in effect.

Pursuant to PUC 21668.2, the Department may, in lieu of revoking an airport permit in accordance with PUC 21668, suspend any Airport Permit, or require suspension of operations of a portion of an airport. Any such suspension shall remain in effect until the department determines that the conditions requiring the suspension no longer exist. The Department may summarily suspend a permit for public safety considerations. Otherwise, the Department will provide prior notice and the opportunity, upon request, for a hearing by the Department to determine whether the suspension shall remain in effect.
