faa modernization and reform act of 2012
FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012

The President signed the FAA Modernization & Reform Act of 2012 on February 14, 2012

  • 4-year FAA reauthorization bill
  • Authorizes $3.35 billion for AIP (FY12 – 15)
    • $165 million less than previous years ($3.5 billion)
    • Still subject to annual appropriation bill
new federal share for aip grants
New Federal Share for AIP Grants

The federal share for development projects reverts back from 95% to the following rate:

  • Arizona – 91.06% (except PHX – 75%)
  • Nevada – 93.75% (except LAS – 75%)
  • Hawaii – 90%
  • Pacific Islands – 90%
  • California – 90.06%

(except BUR, ONT, OAK, SMF, SAN, SJC, SNA - 80.59%, SFO & LAX – 75%)


Essential Air Service Airports in Economically Distressed Areas

US DOT determined the following airports to remain eligible at a 95% federal share:

Kingman (AZ)

Prescott (AZ)

Show Low (AZ)

Crescent City(CA)

El Centro(CA)

Merced (CA)

Visalia (CA)

miscellaneous provision
Miscellaneous Provision
  • Construction projects with discretionary funds may begin before execution of grant agreements, due to climatic condition
  • Changes made to residential through-the-fence (TTF) and disposal of noise land requirements
    • TTF – adds language enabling a GA airport to enter into an agreement with a person to access airport with property adjacent to or near the airport
    • Disposal of noise land – allows designation of noise land as “buffer” land. Airports can lease without treating land as disposal.
new electronic grant payments
New Electronic Grant Payments
  • Delphi eInvoicing is in operation. Call DOT Help desk if you have any registration issues.
    • 1 (866) 641-3500, Option 4, Option 3

  • Delphi eInvoicing manual payment will begin on November 1st.
are you ready for fy13
Are You Ready for FY13?

Ready means that by 12/31/12 you have:

  • Planning complete
  • Project on an approved ALP
  • FAA environmental complete (FONSI, ROD, or submission of extraordinary circumstance form)
  • Airspace review and approval complete
  • Design complete and project ready for bid
fy13 environmental deadline
FY13 Environmental Deadline

Environmental documents should be completed by December 31, 2012

  • Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for Environmental Assessment (EA)
  • Record of Decision (ROD) for Environmental Impact Statement (EIS)
  • Submission of extraordinary circumstance form to support categorical exclusions
fy 2013 grants applications
FY 2013 Grants Applications
  • Get your application is early
    • Ensure calculation adds up and are supported
    • Administrative cost and support services need to have back-up for all numbers
    • Force Account work must be approved by FAA
  • Bids should not include contingency – even by another name
vehicle pedestrian deviations
Vehicle Pedestrian Deviations
  • In FY11, there were 44 Vehicle/Pedestrian Deviation related Runway Incursions (VPD-RIs) in AWP. This is by far the highest number of all Regions.
  • To date in FY12, there have been 18 VPD Runway Incursions in AWP.
    • By this time last year, AWP had experienced 22 so we are doing better, but…
    • We need your vigilance as we move into spring and summer which are our peak times for V/PD RIs.
  • Nevada Airports are doing well.
    • NV Airports had 4 VPD-Ris in FY11.
    • There have been 3 VPD-RI this fiscal year to date at Nevada Airports.
    • 2 at LAS and 1 at VGT.

wildlife hazard management
Wildlife Hazard Management
  • To date in FY12,
    • A total of 123 wildlife strikes have been reported at or near AWP Airports.
    • Of those, 116 occurred at Part 139 certificated airports.
    • The remaining occurred at General Aviation (GA) airports.
  • We strongly recommend all Part 139 certificated airports and busy GA Airports conduct a Wildlife Hazard Assessment and develop a Wildlife Hazard Management Plan even if they have not experienced a “triggering event.”
  • All wildlife strikes should be reported to FAAat http://wildlife.faa.gov.
runway safety area program
Runway Safety Area Program
  • All practicable improvements to RSAs at Part 139 airports, including NavAids related actions, must be completed by December 30, 2015.
  • GOOD NEWS: Based on the information we have, all Part 139 Certificated Runways in Nevada meet current RSA Standards.
  • Not So Good News: We have 30 RSA projects to be completed by the deadline.
    • AWP program is faced with timing & funding challenges in meeting the 2015 deadline.
    • Our ACIP, includes over $400 million in AIP funding for RSA projects. This means that other, lower priority, projects must be deferred.
safety management system sms
Safety Management System (SMS)
  • Airports implementation of SMS is limited to Large Hub Airport projects only until further notice.
  • FAA-Air Traffic Organization (ATO) implementation of SMS may include any project with potential to impact operation of the National Airspace System.
  • AWP has identified the following large hub airport projects that require further screening under the SMS process in 2012:
    • McCarran (LAS) Two Taxiway Rehabilitations (CSPP).
    • Honolulu (HNL) Rehabilitate Taxiway Z (design only).
    • San Francisco (SFO) Runway 10L-28R and 10R-28L Runway Safety Areas.
    • Los Angeles (LAX) Construct two aprons at Bradley Terminal and Taxiway “T”.
    • Phoenix (PHX) Rehab Taxiway “B8”.
  • Other SRMPs may be initiated by FAA-ATO.
design standards update
Design Standards Update
  • FAA is working on update to Advisory Circular 150/5300-13, Airport Design.
    • FAA’s goal is to publish AC 150/5300-13A by the end of Fiscal Year 12.
    • Principal Changes are in the areas of:
      • Chapter 3, Runway Design
      • Chapter 4, Taxiway and Taxilane Design
      • Declared Distances and RSA Application
      • Runway Protection Zone (RPZ)
      • Taxiway Design Group (TDG) Concept for Fillet Design
      • Runway Design Code (RDC), Runway Reference Code (RRC) and Taxiway Design Group (TDG) designation
      • Minimum separation between non-intersecting runways
      • Runway incursion prevention geometry for new construction
      • Consolidation of numerous runway design tables to one design requirements matrix – Table 3-5
  • FAA is also working on updates to the Heliport Design AC and new standards for Parachute Landing Areas on airports.

National ADO Initiatives

  • Geographic Balancing (Geo-balancing)
    • National redistribution of resources to better serve our customers
    • New Phoenix ADO to serve AZ and NV
      • Phoenix office will initially report to LAX ADO
    • LAX and SFO ADOs will exclusively serve California
  • National SOPs under development to create consistency among ADOs
