  1. Yakima Air Terminal/McAllister Field Master Plan Airport Board Briefing May 21, 2012 YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  2. Meeting Purpose To present the results of the facility requirements analysis and explore alternative approaches to meeting future needs. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  3. Summary of Airfield Requirements • The current length of Runway 9/27 (7,604 feet) is sufficient for most aircraft types expected to use the airport. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  4. Summary of Airfield Requirements • Runway 4/22 is not eligible for future FAA funding. • Both VFR and IFR wind analyses show more than 95% coverage on Runway 9/27 at a 13 knot crosswind. • Airfield capacity analysis shows that Runway 9/27 provides sufficient capacity for forecast activity through the year 2030. • Runway Capacity: 230,000 annual operations • Forecast Demand in 2030: 151,072 annual operations YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  5. Summary of Terminal Area Requirements • The existing passenger terminal building needs rehabilitation and expansion. (2015 – 2020) • Passenger flow patterns need to be addressed. (2012 – 2015) • Maintenance issues (HVAC equipment, roof leaks, etc.) need addressed. (2012 – 2015) • The airport’s administrative offices require upgrades. (2012 – 2015) • The public parking lot will need to be expanded. (2015-2020) YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  6. Air Cargo Needs • Additional loading/unloading/processing area will be needed as more cargo is shipped in and out of Yakima. • FedEx is the only carrier with offices and indoor processing facilities. • Additional area for the other cargo carriers is likely to use existing apron space. • Cargo carriers may desire dedicated indoor space in the future. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  7. General Aviation Needs • There is a need for approximately 40 additional T-hangars. • Demand for 13 new “corporate” or “group” hangars has been identified. • Additional area for FBO expansion will be needed. • General aviation automobile parking areas – separate from the airfield area need to be identified. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  8. Alternative Identification Alternatives must; • Provide for activity growth and meet forecast demand levels. • Continue to accommodate all airport users – airlines, air cargo, and general aviation. • Meet FAA criteria for safety and planning. • Minimize environmental impacts. • Assure community compatibility. • Use airport property efficiently. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  9. Airfield Alternatives • Runway Length • Remove extension from the ALP • Leave extension on the ALP for contingency purposes. Runway 4/22 • Close the runway. • Continue operations on the current runway at Board expense. • Reduce runway footprint and operate at Board expense (possible WSDOT financing available). Turf Runway • Should meet all FAA design and location standards. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  10. Reconstruct Runway 4/22 YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  11. Reconstruct Runway 4/22 • Calculate cost of reconstruction to BI (Small) standard. • Explore potential for WSDOT participation in funding. • Determine feasibility of maintaining the runway without FAA support. • Determine annual usage. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  12. Add A Turf Runway YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  13. Add A Turf Runway • Does it meet FAA standards? • Flight safety/ATC considerations require more than 700 ft. separation between runways. • Affect on overall air traffic. • Environmental consequences. • Cost. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  14. Terminal Expansion Alternatives • Do-nothing. • Rehabilitate and modernize existing terminal. • Construct a new terminal • At the same location • At a different location. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  15. Terminal Alternatives YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  16. Terminal Alternatives • ATCT line-of-sight compliance • FAR Part 77 surfaces • Ability to expand beyond 20-years • Community access (visibility) • Airfield access • Adjacent land uses • Design Issues • Cost YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  17. General Aviation Alternatives • Where should new hangars be built? • What is the optimum layout for new facilities? • How should they connect with the runway system? YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  18. General Aviation Alternatives YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  19. General Aviation Alternatives • Compatibility with adjacent uses. • Meet FAA guidelines. • Minimum environmental consequences. • Minimize cost YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA

  20. Other Considerations • Provide for other airport related uses such as; • Heavy maintenance facilities • Aircraft manufacturing. • Aviation-related industrial • Aviation-related commercial. YAKIMA AIR TERMINAL | McALLISTER FIELD | Yakima, WA
