Avigation Easement

Hidden Valley Airpark in Texas has shared their avigation easement as a starting point for others to use. Preparing such an easement for an airpark is important protection particularly if such agreements can be reached with those under the airpark flight patterns.

Conflicts on airparks

There probably isn’t any real solution to that problem because people are people and there are always going to be conflicts.

Self-certification more important now

Well, recently a bill was introduced into the House of Representatives that calls for the TSA to establish security requirements for general aviation airparks – HR 3397 The General Aviation Security Act of 2005.

Airpark Security Self Certification

It is a good idea to have an Airpark Security Plan. Even if it is a self-certified plan, it shows airpark attorneys, insurance agents, area law enforcement, and government officials your airpark takes security seriously. Following is a starting point to put such a plan in place.

Residential Airpark Security

A residential airpark is a wonderful place to live, bring up a family and enjoy the convenience of living with your airplane, whether that is for business or pleasure.

Enforcing the CC&Rs

One of the major issues that continually comes up in discussions about residential airparks is how a homeowners association or an airpark developer enforces the covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC&Rs) that have been established.

How do you handle CC&R violators?

A problem that crops up regularly at residential airparks concerns the individual who won’t live by the Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs).

Blocking ‘Public’ areas

One problem that comes up from time to time relates to the blocking of a little used street or taxiway.
The blockage could occur from someone parking a motorhome in the right-of-way. Perhaps what originally was a small shrub has grown over the years into a pretty good-sized tree that impedes the easy movement of an airplane or car.
