1A and 2C certification for cell tower construction FAQ

What is the difference between an FAA 1A and 2C certification?

The 1A and 2C certifications refer to land survey accuracy. An FAA 1A certification is +20 ft horizontally, +3 ft vertically. An FAA 2C certification is +50 ft horizontally, +20 ft vertically.

Where do I find the standard FAA 1A form? Where do I find the standard FAA 2C form?

You do not need an official form, but we will provide a certificate stating that the cell tower survey we performed is within the required accuracy range. This is known as a FAA 1A letter or an FAA 2C letter.

Telecom FAA Certification in Santa Ana, CA

Santa Ana is the most populated city in Orange County. The city is located on particularly flat land, which is advantageous in any tower construction project, but there are also flood risks in many areas. The Santa Ana river is the largest river in Southern California and poses a continuous flood risk despite dam construction. Coupled with the usual earthquake dynamics in Southern California, extra care must be taken in land surveying for risk management and stability concerns.

Mission Viejo is a suburban, mainly residential city located in south Orange County. The most significant geological feature in this area is Lake Mission Viejo, a huge artificial lake built for the large planned residential community that Mission Viejo consists of.
