Session #1: Introduction to Airport Law

This session provides an introduction both to the workshop and to airport law. Presenters focus on how airport law is different from aviation law, the law governing other transportation modes, or more general municipal law. This session explores the way the federal government (primarily—but not exclusively—the FAA) regulates airports and the activities of airport proprietors. Attendees can expect a discussion about the lines between the authority between the federal government and local governments with an emphasis on understanding where federal regulation is pervasive, where legal authority is shared, and where there is only limited federal regulatory oversight. It introduces common terms and legal relationships among the various stakeholders and provides background for new attendees at the workshop and attendees experienced in airport management but new to the field of airport law.

Session #2: A History of Airports in the U.S.A.

This session introduces participants to the history of airports and airport regulation in the United States. It explores why this history is valuable for understanding the role of local, state, and federal governments in the airport system. We will explain why a historical context is useful for understanding new concepts of airport law and how the evolution of airport law is unique in the United States.

Session #3: A Lawyer's Introduction to Airport Finances

Understanding the permissible sources and uses of funds for airports is one of the foundations of airport law. This session offers an introduction to the unique legal constraints under which airports generate revenue and the legal limitations on expenditure of airport funds. Note: this session is intended to be an introduction to sources and uses of airport funds: airport finance, federal regulation of airport finances, and the legal requirements for documenting the sources and uses of airport funds.
