The Streaked Horned Lark (SHL) is currently considered a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act. Streaked Horned Lark population is centered in parts of the Willamette Valley and the Northern Oregon Coast. Their habitat includes areas which are classified as sparsely vegetated grasslands for nesting such as airports. Oregon Department of Aviation's (ODAV) goal is to identify and protect nesting sites yet allow for airport projects to move forward to maintain the system of airports within Oregon. ODA is closely working with both the FAA and USFWS to identify habitat locations at the various airports throughout Oregon that have been identified as potential habitat.

For information, please contact Heather Peck, Planning & Projects Manager at Oregon Department of Aviation at (503) 378-3168.
The Oregon Department of Aviation has updated our online portal, the Oregon Aviation Program Payments system, which now includes the ability to request and pay for aeronautical studies. This replaces our previous notification process, which means you will now provide notice of proposed construction or alteration through the portal instead of submitting FAA Form 7460-1 to us.
The portal can be found here: https://apps.oregon.gov/ECommerce/EPS/Aviation. To complete the notification process, click on Aeronautical Study and follow the prompts.
In addition to accepting payment through the portal, payment will also still be accepted over the phone at 503-378-2217 or via check sent to Oregon Department of Aviation, 3040 25th Street SE, Salem, OR 97302.
If you have questions or suggestions related to aeronautical studies or any portion of this process, please contact Brandon Pike, Aviation Planner, at 503-378-2217 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Initial Drone Registrations About to Expire
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is reminding everyone whose drone registrations expire in December that the DroneZone is the FAA's official website for registration.
If you completed your drone registration directly with the FAA before the DroneZone was established in January 2018, a DroneZone account was created for you using the information you provided. Access your account by entering the same email address you used when you first registered, and by using the “forgot password" tool to establish a new password.
If you registered using a third-party service, contact that company to request your DroneZone login credentials. Otherwise, you will have to create a new account in the DroneZone and get a new registration.
Registration on the DroneZone is fast and easy and the fee is only $5 for a three-year period. All drones must be registered, except those that weigh .55 pounds or less (less than 250 grams) and are flown exclusively under the Exception for Recreational Flyers (PDF). Please do your part to keep the skies safe and renew your registration today.
