  1. California Airports Issues A Dialogue

  2. Topics • ACRP Report 90: Impact of Regulatory Compliance on Small Airports • AvGas Replacement • Sequestration Impacts • Pilot Retention

  3. ACRP 90: Impact of Regulatory Compliance on Small Airports • Identify compliance requirements applicable to small hub and non-hub airports • Quantify cost of compliance • Looked at: FAA/DOT; EPA; TSA; OSHA requirements • Study period: 2000-2010 • Found 291 Federal compliance actions adopted during the study period

  4. Conclusions • Cost continues to grow • Small airports do not have the revenue generating capacity to meet costs of expanding requirements • Limited airport resources • Applying standards uniformly to all airports results in disproportionate responsibility on small airports

  5. Strategies • Most options not in airports’ control • Increased funding • Changes in policy to account for different size and complexity of airports • Better estimates of compliance costs • User engagement during regulatory comment period

  6. AvGas Replacement • Unleaded Avgas Transition Advance Rulemaking Committee • FAA committed to new unleaded fuel by 2018 • FAA request for candidate replacement fuels (6/10/13) • CEH Lawsuit status • Governor’s initiative to limit Prop 65 applicability • Court ruling on EPA lawsuit

  8. Pilot Retention • US active pilots 2011: 617,000 • US active pilots 2002: 632,000 • US active pilots 1980: 827,000 • Completion rate 1990: 47% • Completion rate 2010: 28%
