Airport Safety Inspections
Under contract with the FAA, the aviation section performs airport safety inspections to all public use general aviation airports in Missouri. Airports are inspected on average once every three years. Inspections focus on identifying safety concerns such as obstructions in the runway protection zones, nonstandard lighting and pavement markings, and poor pavement conditions. Information from these inspections are also used in several aeronautical publications.

Grant Programs
The aviation section administers several state and federal grant programs for capital improvement and maintenance projects at public use airports. Click on the heading to learn more about these programs.

Missouri is an FAA block grant state, so MoDOT's aviation section is the approving authority for all airport master planning and airport layout plans for general aviation airports in Missouri. An AMP is a planning document used by airport owners and MoDOT to coordinate logical development of airport facilities. An ALP is a visual depiction of all existing and planned airport development.

The aviation section also maintains a state airport system plan which is basically a constantly changing database of information tracking aviation facilities and activity levels at Missouri airports. Airport activity levels are tracked using several acoustical traffic counters that are placed near runways around the state for a period of time. The SASP, along with the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems, are the primary resources for reviewing and prioritizing applications for grant funds to improve an airport.

Any public airport owner can request and receive technical assistance on airport issues. MoDOT Aviation's knowledgeable staff that can provide technical assistance to airports on a variety of operation, maintenance and construction issues. This service is free of charge.
