A RESOLUTION TO APPROVE AMENDMENTS TO THE WARRENTON-FAUQUIER AIRPORT MINIMUM STANDARDS FOR AVIATION SERVICES AND THE WARRENTON-FAUQUIER AIRPORT RULES AND REGULATIONS
WHEREAS, in January 2006, the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors adopted the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport Minimum Standards for Aviation Services and the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport Rules and Regulations; and
WHEREAS, upon further review of the Rules and Regulations and Minimum Standards, it has been determined that revisions are necessary to provide clarification of wording and to create a procedure for aircraft owners to utilize the “unscheduled maintenance” provision as it currently stands; and
WHEREAS, the following revisions to the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport Rules and Regulations are proposed:
Chapter 3, Section 3, Paragraph A, Page 12:
Section 3: Maintenance of Aircraft
Repairs to aircraft or engines shall be made in the areas
designated for this purpose by the County and the Airport Manager, and
not on any part of the runway, taxiways, ramps or fueling service
areas. This section does not prohibit owners from performing
maintenance on their own aircraft in their assigned hangars or tie-down
space as authorized by the FARs
1. Warranted maintenance work that requires repair or additional attention by the warranting company.
2. A malfunction that prevents the aircraft from being taken to another airport for maintenance.
3. Maintenance work that requires a specialty service that is not being provided by an existing FBO or SASO operating at the Airport.
b. All aircraft maintenance shall be conducted strictly in accordance with Airport Services Minimum Standards; all Federal, State, and County fire and safety regulations; all Federal, State, and County rules and regulations; airworthiness directives, and other applicable rules and regulations.
c. No aircraft engine shall be started on an aircraft unless a competent operator is at the controls of the aircraft.
d. No aircraft engine shall be run up unless the aircraft is in a position that the propeller or turbine engine blast clears all hangars, shops, other building, persons, other aircraft and automobiles or vehicles in the area, and the flight path of arriving or departing aircraft.
WHEREAS, the following revision to the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport Minimum Standards for Aviation Services is recommended:
Revision to Appendix A:
Addition of Non-based Maintenance Permit Fee per occurrence $25.00
; now, therefore, be it
RESOLVED by the Fauquier County Board of Supervisors this 13th day of July 2006, That the proposed revisions to the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport Rules and Regulations and the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport Minimum Standards for Aviation Services be, and are hereby, adopted.
