Residential Through-the-Fence Access Toolkit


Residential through-the-fence (RTTF) agreements allow people who own residential property with aircraft storage facilities near an airport to access the airport from off-airport property. These properties are sometimes known as "hangar homes." On February 14, 2012, the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 was signed into law (P.L. 112-95). Section 136 of this law permits general aviation airports, as defined by the statute, to enter into residential through-the-fence agreements with property owners or association representing property owners. RTTF agreements must comply with specific terms and conditions contained in the law.
