We have our strip about 10 years before filling out the FAA paper work so it would be on the chart. I was having 2 fly-in cookouts each year with about 200 people flying in and people were complaining about not being able to find the grass field strip.My original design is a one seater. 1M liability is about $400 a year. Pilot experience will be a factor.
When I finished my strip in 92, I was told the Feds wanted to know about it. They sent me a buncha mostly info requested type forms. Length, obstacles, open to the public type things. I sent it all in and they came back with this "approved" reply. And then they put it on the chart! I didn't want that.
So the neighbor, one of those who can't be outdone by anybody; decided he had to have a strip. Right next door and obviously conflicting traffic patterns. They "disapproved" his. I got a kick outa that. It's still in operation today.
I don't know the "rules" concerning that but what I got out of it was they didn't care about it other than they wanted to know it's there. That was the JAN FSDO.
Neighbors--- Neighbors in the area loved the invite for the free food at the cookouts and free airplane rides and free music. Neighbor farmer even sold us some land to extend the runway.
