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
