A Resolution to Amend the Warrenton-Fauquier Airport Rules, Regulations, and Minimum Standards

Topic Description:

Fauquier County wishes to have the ability to better manage a limited number of aircraft that  display some extent of disassembly and to ensure that used fuel products are properly disposed. The following changes to the airport rules and regulations are recommended:


Chapter II, Section 2: Parked Aircraft

c. No person shall park or store any aircraft that is missing any major exterior component necessary for flight on any tie-down or ramp.  Examples include: wings, empennage, cowling, and propeller.  Should temporary removal of a component be required to perform any unscheduled maintenance as defined in Section 3 of this Chapter, it will require a written request to the Airport Manager and written permission from the Airport Manager to include a time limit that the condition can exist.


Additionally, in order to bring the Airport into compliance with EPA guidelines covering the disposal of aircraft fuel sump samples, containers have been placed in the tie-down areas for the collection of this fuel.  The following addition is recommended:


Chapter III, Section 6: Disposal of Sump Fuel

All fuel samples collected from aircraft for the purpose of detection of contaminants shall be disposed of utilizing the containers on the Airport ramps labeled “SUMP FUEL.”   Absolutely, no fuel is to be disposed of in any other manner, such as pouring on the asphalt or grass.
