FAA PAVEAIRWeb-Based Pavement Management Software

What is an airport pavement management system
What is an Airport Pavement Management System?

  • Discussed in FAA Advisory Circular 150/5380-7A

  • A system which identifies optimum strategies to maintain pavements at an adequate level of serviceability

  • Includes systematic procedures for scheduling maintenance and rehabilitation activities

  • Optimizes benefits while minimizing cost

History of airport pavement management systems apms
History of Airport Pavement Management Systems (APMS)

  • Development of Mainframe PAVER was started in 1968 for use on mainframe computers

  • Development was by the USACE for use by the Department of Defense (DOD)

  • Development of MicroPAVER was started in 1985 -funding was provided by the FAA for development by the ACOE

  • FAA version of MicroPAVER was delivered in 1987

  • FAA PAVEAIR – web-based APMS released on Feb 10, 2011

Benefits of an airport pavement management system
Benefits of an Airport Pavement Management System

  • Provides an objective and consistent evaluation of the condition of a network of pavements

  • Provides a systematic and documentable engineering basis for determining maintenance and rehabilitation needs

  • Identifies budget requirements necessary to maintain pavements at various levels of serviceability

  • Provides documentation on the present and future condition of the pavements in a network

  • Determines life-cycle costs for various maintenance and rehabilitation alternatives

  • Identifies the impact on the pavement network as a result of performing no major repairs

Pavement management programs must include
Pavement Management Programs Must Include:

  • Pavement Inventory:

  • Location, type of pavement, dimensions, construction date

  • Inspection Schedule

  • Detailed inspection must be performed at least once a year

  • Drive-by inspection must be performed a minimum of once per month

  • Record Keeping:

  • Inspection date, location, distress types, maintenance scheduled or performed

  • Information Retrieval

  • Program Funding

Faa paveair

  • FAA PAVEAIR Pavement Management System

  • Publicly available and free to use (source code available)

  • Databases can be made “public” or “private”

  • Includes similar functionality found in MicroPAVER version 5.3

  • Web-based

  • Access though the Internet, Intranet, or a stand-alone PC


  • Development was started in May 2008

  • The development and testing contractor is SRA International

  • FAA PAVEAIR has been developed from the ground – up as a new application


  • Program Requirements

    • The FAA is hosting a server installed at the WJHTC to be a repository for civil airport projects funded under the Airport Improvement Program (AIP).

    • The complete application is available for free download:

      • As a set of installation files.

      • Full source code.

      • Documentation for installation and operation.


Import Databases

Compatible with MicroPAVER.

Able to import Micro Paver e60 file.

Able to import Micro Paver MDB file.

Import Steps:

Data is uploaded into PDMSPaverImport.

Data is converted and temporarily stored in PaverToPDMS.

Data is then copied to a new PAVEAIR database.






• FAA PAVEAIR has been developed using ASTM D 5340, “Standard Test Method for Airport Pavement Condition Index Surveys”

• Another valuable reference has been the currently out of print FAA Advisory Circular FAA-RD-80-55, “Procedure for Condition Survey of Civil Airports”

  • The first release of FAA PAVEAIR has the same functionality of MicroPAVER version 5.3


  • Program Requirements

    • Web-based application

      • that provides a system for easy dissemination of information for airport pavement construction, maintenance, and management.

    • Data for multiple airports available on a single server connected to the web

    • Suitable for installation and use on:

      • Single PC

      • Private network

      • Intranet or Internet.

  • Advantages Disadvantages

  • No installation required • Requires internet access;

  • Always the most current cannot be used offline


  • Data stored on FAA Servers

  • Data can be Public or Private

  • Data can be accessed from

    any computer with internet access

Intranet version
Intranet Version

  • Advantages Disadvantages

  • No Installation required • Need dedicated server

    for clients • Must be maintained

  • Data stored on company • Requires access to

    servers (Private) intranet servers;

  • Data can be accessed cannot be used offline from any computer with

    access to the intranet server

Locally installed version
Locally Installed Version

  • Advantages Disadvantages

  • Can be used off-line • Must be maintained

  • Data is stored directly • Requires installation

    on your computer of IIS and SQL server express

    • IIS is only available on premium versions

    of Windows

    • Can only be accessed

    from the computer it is installed on.


  • FAA PAVEAIR is able to:

    • Collect:

      • Divide airport pavements into uniform sections

      • Record PCI data for each section

    • Store:

      • Pavement condition history i.e. Pavement Condition Index (PCI)

      • Pavement construction and maintenance history


  • FAA PAVEAIR is able to:

    • Analyze

      • Generate network level reports for planning, budgeting, inspection scheduling, and pavement condition at any time,

      • Provide project level analysis for M & R requirements and perform economic analyses for different M & R alternatives

    • Share Data


Various user security and access rights

Executive summary/review

Administrator (establish rights)

Data input (owner), etc.

Future faa paveair work

  • Conduct User’s Group meetings to improve the application

  • Develop procedures for disaster recovery and continuity of operations plans in the event normal operations are interrupted

Future faa paveair work1

  • Develop User Interface to manage users and profiles

  • Evaluate automated Pavement Condition Index feasibility

  • Continued support and development after initial deployment

  • Provide a Spanish and French language version

  • Support for MicroPAVER e65 files


  • Possible Implementations

    • By the FAA for AIP projects.

    • By large Airport Authorities.

    • By state DOT’s for GA airports (NASAO interest).

    • By consulting and engineering services companies for private or customer only access.

  • FAA will continue support and development after initial deployment; for example include functions to comply with existing FAA GIS Standards.
