Cecil Airport Wildlife Hazard Assessment
Cecil Airport is in the process of starting a 12 month long Wildlife Hazard Assessment of the airport.

To conduct a Wildlife Hazard Assessment (WHA), Environmental Resource Solutions, Inc. (ERS), our consultants, will diligently follow the five-step process indicated in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 14-Part 139-337, ensuring that the VQQ WHA will be fully compliant with all FAA mandates related to WHAs. The five steps in securing FAA approval are initial analysis, identification of potentially hazardous wildlife species, identification and location of wildlife attractants, results and recommendations, and employee training.

Preparation for the WHA is spent conducting several months of surveys to identify the species utilizing VQQ property, how species occurrence may change with each season, and their movements and patterns onsite, as well as offsite. This will be accomplished through Fixed-Point Surveys, General Observations, Night Spotlight Surveys, and Small-mammal Transects.

ERS will also utilize the following data sources and onsite reconnaissance: Recent aerial photographs or aerial surveys, Interviews with airport personnel, Observations during the fixed-point surveys, and General inspections of on-site and off-site areas.

Recommendations will include those for habitat management, wildlife permitting, and wildlife control and removal, with suggested control measures for specific species observed at VQQ during the assessment. Upon VQQ approval of the WHA report, it will be forwarded to FAA.

Helopad Certification

The Cecil Airport Operations Department recently received the approval from the FAA for the Certification of landing sites at our existing helopads previously not recognized by the FAA. This process included inspection by the FDOT Aviation Office as well as FAA Flight Procedures personnel. Cecil Airports meet and exceed the recommended configuration for a helicopter landing location for daytime use. With this certification the helopads will be published in the FAA Airport Facilities Directory with direction of flight and restrictions for direction of launch and landing on helopad 1, please do not fly into the control tower.
