The applicant should either be the owner of the land, or have obtained the landowner’s permission for the use of the site as an aerodrome. A proposal to use land as an aerodrome may be subject to the requirements of applicable planning regulations and applicants are advised to consult the Cayman Islands Government Planning Department before embarking on any such project. The intended applicant should also consult with the CAA before committing to expenditure on developing or equipping an aerodrome.
The initial application for an aerodrome certificate must be made on the Aerodrome Certificate Application Form. The completed form should be returned to the CAA together with a map showing the aerodrome location and boundaries (preferably on a scale 1:25 000) and the appropriate application fee.
Additionally, survey data in the form of charts, profiles, sections, evidence of pavement strengths and surface textures etc, relating to the aerodrome site, must be provided by the applicant as required by the CAA. An application for the variation of a certificate must be made in writing and be accompanied by the relevant survey and other information where there are any changes in the aerodrome characteristics.
