Order 5190.6B sets forth policies and procedures for the FAA Airport Compliance Program. It provides basic guidance for FAA personnel in interpreting and administering the various continuing commitments airport owners make to the United States as a condition for the grant of federal funds or the conveyance of federal property for airport purposes. The Order discusses the obligations set forth in the standard airport sponsor assurances, addresses the application of the assurances in the operation of public-use airports, and facilitates interpretation of the assurances by FAA personnel.
Change 1 to Order 5190.6B updates Chapter 1, Scope and Authority; Chapter 9, Unjust Discrimination between Aeronautical Users; Chapter 10, Reasonable Commercial Minimum Standards; Chapter 11, Self-Service; and Chapter 23, Reversions of Airport Property. The FAA will continue to release changes until the entire document is updated.
