Airport Ownership and Rights

Airport categories can be split into two types, public-use and private use. At the same time airport ownership is broken into two categories as well, private ownership and public ownership. However, airport categories and ownership do not line up along the same lines - there exist privately owned, public use airports. This lesson seeks to distinguish between public and private ownership of airports as well as their powers available to each.
