The planning section is responsible for providing technical assistance to airport sponsors and private entities regarding airport-level planning activities.  Planning seeks to provide the framework needed to guide future airport development by identifying needs, establishing a schedule for implementation, and proposing a financial plan to support the implementation schedule.  Under the State Block Grant Program, the Aeronautics Division reviews and provides approval for Airport Layout Plans (ALP) on behalf of the FAA.
