Lead Agency


The North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG) is a voluntary association of cities, counties, school districts, and special districts which was established in January 1966 to assist local governments in planning for common needs, cooperating for mutual benefit, and coordinating for sound regional development.

Technical Oversight


The Air Transportation Technical Advisory Committee (ATAC) oversaw the Regional General Aviation and
Heliport System Plan and advises NCTCOG staff on regionally significant issues affecting the general aviation
and heliport system.



The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Aviation Division assists cities and counties applying for, receiving and disbursing federal and state funds for reliever and general aviation airports included in the Texas Airport System Plan (TASP).

In addition to administering the state grant funds, the aviation division is a participant in the FAA
State Block Grant Program through which it has responsibilities for the federal improvement program for
general aviation airports. The division also operates a fleet of state owned aircraft for the transportation
needs of state officials and employees as well as providing maintenance and repair services to most
state-owned aircraft.


The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is the national aviation authority of the United States. An agency of the United States Department of Transportation, it has authority to regulate and oversee all aspects of civil aviation in the U.S. This System Plan was funded and supported by the FAA.
