This AC provides general guidance and information for airport owners and operators in the collection, submission and management of data describing the physical infrastructure, characteristics, and services of their airport. This data is source material for the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)’s aeronautical information databases, for use in the dissemination of aviation information to the public, preparation of government and private industry aeronautical charts, and related flight information publications as required by Title 49 United States Code 44721, 49 U.S.C. 47130, and the planning and programming of various programs within the FAA. This AC also describes the schedule, frequency and standards for airport inspections. 

We are re-circulating this draft AC. It has been revised to conform to FAA and industry principles and standards of data management and stewardship. The final document will cancel AC 150/5200-35A, Submitting the Airport Master Record in Order to Activate a New Airport.
