Identification Information
Abstract:

This is a layer of Public Use Airports currently permitted and within theby the State of California, by the Department of Transportation (Caltrans), Division of Aeronautics. Details for each site are updated regularly after airport permit safety inspections of each site.

Purpose:
The dataset was created to allow a visual identification of airport using Google technology and to easily identify the airport classification of each site.

Supplemental Info: Additional information can be found at the Caltrans Division of Aeronautics home page:   http://www.dot.ca.gov/hq/planning/aeronaut/index.html.
Time Period: Start:      End:
Currentness:
Progress:

Annual updates will occur, however the schedule is not yet determined, possibly an annual update by the Division of Aeronautics unless a daily automation is in place, thereby continuous updates. 

Contact Kevin Ryan (POC) for update schedule.  (916) 653-3012, or any other data related inquiries.
Update Frequency:

Updates are conducted regularly and frequently and a minimum of 18 months intervals.
