This AC is a reissuance of the Hot-Mix Asphalt Paving Handbook 2000. When finalized the Handbook will be incorporated into the AC as Appendix 1. The handbook is unaltered from the version issued in AC 150/5370-14A in July 2001. To access the handbook, see AC 150/5370-14A.

The handbook concentrates on field practices for asphalt paving, including plant operations, transportation of materials, surface preparation, laydown, compaction, and quality control processes. Although most of the information can be found in other documents, the handbook remains useful for airports and the information it contains is still valid.
