The AIP Handbook provides guidance to FAA staff about the administration of the Airport Improvement Program.

We are in the process of updating the AIP Handbook (see Draft AIP Handbook below). Until we complete the update, this version is current but must be used in conjunction with active Program Guidance Letters.

The public comment period for Draft AIP Handbook, Order 5100.38D, is now closed. Although FAA Orders are intended for use by FAA employees, this Order is widely used by airports, airport consultants, and others involved with the AIP. Therefore, we may consider the comments we received from these groups as we finalize it.
