Application of the Airport and Airway Improvement Act to the Proposed Lease of the Albany County Airport

Headnotes: 

Section 511(a)(12) of the Airport and Airway Improvement Act permits an airport owner or operator to recoup its unreimbursed capital or operating costs from airport revenues, regardless of when the expenses were incurred. The Federal Aviation Administration, however, in the exercise of discretion conferred upon the Secretary of Transportation by the Act, may oversee the rates charged to airport users by private lessees to ensure that such rates remain fair and reasonable.
