Does anyone know any FAA / ADO issues with using an area of good grass turf that is parallel to the existing hard surface runway? Non-Towered, Class E airport. The area has perfect grass and no transition issues from the runway to the parallel grass surrounding the runway. Just looking at a regulation standpoint. I believe the airport manager is just making things up out of thin air on the fly. I can’t find anything out there that says this is a unsafe or illegal practice. Not that it matters but it’s for an aircraft that will have a tail skid instead of a tailwheel and it’s natural home is turf. Any thoughts or people to talk to would be helpful.
