General Information

Medium and Small Hub – Airports that meet the FAA’s definition of medium and small hub airports. The FAA definition is based on the reported number of U.S. commercial enplanements. Medium hubs account for 0.25 to 1.0 percent of total U.S. enplanements. Small hubs receive 0.05 to 0.25 percent of the total annual enplanements.

Regional Hubs - Airports that serve the transportation and economic hub for more than one community. Regional airports generally accommodate larger aircraft, have instrument approaches, and have more landside facilities, infrastructure, and services than other smaller, public use airports.

Community – Airports that generally fulfill the role of a small community’s primary airport and serve basic needs such as passenger travel to regional hubs, mail service, local aviation related business, and emergency needs. This classification includes communities with a year-round population of at least 25 people, a public school, and located more than one hour by road from an International, Regional Hub, or other Community class airport. This classification is divided into two subcategories, On-Road and Off-Road. Off-Road airports are not connected to the National Highway System.

Local – These airports are considered general aviation airports and widely vary in size, scope, and dimensions. Local airports are divided into three sub-classifications: Local NPIAS High-Activity, Local NPIAS Low-Activity, and Local Non-NPIAS. High-Activity airports do not qualify for other classifications, are in the NPIAS, and have at least 20 based aircraft. Low-Activity airports do not qualify for other classifications, are in the NPIAS, and have fewer than 20 based aircraft. Non-NPIAS airports are DOT&PF owned facilities that are not in the NPIAS and ineligible for federal grant funding.

Landing Strips – This classification includes all aircraft landing areas that are registered with FAA and open to public use but are not in the NPIAS and not owned and operated by DOT&PF.

Maintenance Provider:

Contract – includes airports owned and operated by DOT&PF but with day to day maintenance activities provided through a DOT/PF funded contract. Contract airports may still require some maintenance services to be provided by DOT&PF as well as possibly other contractors i.e. electrical, building, heavy re-surfacing repairs, large scale brushing, or other repairs that may be outside the scope of the standard maintenance contract.

DOT M&O – includes airports with onsite DOT&PF maintenance crews or airports maintained by DOT&PF crews from satellite maintenance stations.

Local Sponsor – includes airports not owned and/or operated by DOT&PF.

N/A – includes airports where ownership and/or maintenance is uncertain.

PFAS Identified in Soil:
What are PFAS?
PFAS are "emerging contaminants," or chemicals with limited data on human health effects. PFOS and PFOA are the most studied. PFAS are used in products that resist fire, stains, grease, and water. While PFAS can be found in firefighting foam, they can also be present in furniture and carpets treated for stain resistance, waterproof clothing, and food packaging.
Beginning in 2001, 3M and other major manufacturers of fire-fighting foams and consumer products containing PFAS-related chemicals began to phase out the use of PFOA and PFOS in these products due to findings that these chemicals can be harmful.
PFAS that enter the environment are known to persist for a long time and may travel long distances in groundwater.
