You have been selected to join an elite group
of survey professionals: those performing in the very specialized world of
airport surveys. Gathering high-accuracy aeronautical information requires
specific tasks and deliverables some of which may be all-new to a
traditional land surveyor.
The documents and information on this web site ensure you
have the right tools to complete your work in a timely and efficient
manner. The FAA, in concert with the National Geodetic Survey (NGS)
Aeronautical Survey Program, developed these materials. If you need more
