We will assist in the initial site inspection. We will provide a recommendation letter, as appropriate. We will conduct a final airport inspection if all other requirements have been met and the site is ready for use.
A State license or registration will be issued after meeting all requirements of the Code of Maryland Regulations (COMAR), Chapter 4.
