TRB Webinar: Strings Attached—Permissible Uses of Airport Property and Revenue

Understanding the permissible use of airport revenue is one of the most common legal issues faced by airport management. This is especially true for use of revenue related to real estate development of airport property. TRB will host a webinar on Tuesday, July 26, 2022 from 1:30 – 3:00 PM Eastern that will explore the legal principles governing the generation and use of revenue from real estate development on the airport, and the approvals required for such development. Presenters will also examine the nexus between property use and regulations. Presenters will provide a map for airport management to aid in decision-making when considering the use of airport property for non-aeronautical and revenue generation purposes.

This webinar is based on ACRP Legal Research Digest 40: Permissible Uses of Airport Property and Revenue.

This webinar is sponsored by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, you must sign into to register.

A recording will be sent to all registrants after the webinar.
