CHANGE 1 (02-26-2014)

This change replaces Runway Reference Code (RRC) with new Approach and Departure Reference Code (APRC and DPRC) designations; expands Taxiway Fillet information and adds a new Appendix 8, Taxiway Fillet Design; adjusts TDG limits, with associated changes to fillet dimensions; moves Figure 4-1 to Chapter 1; combines Tables 3-4 and 3-5 to form Standards for Instrument Approach Procedures; incorporates minor editorial corrections; adds a Record of Changes at the end of the AC; and incorporates revisions describes in the Errata Sheet for the original release.

150/5070-6B APP-400 Airport Master Plans

Provides guidance for the preparation of airport master plans that range in size and function from small general aviation to large commercial service facilities. Appendix D of this AC cancels Chapter 1, Section 5; Appendix 6; and Appendix 7 of AC 150/5300-13, Airport Design. Consolidated file contains Changes 1 and 2.

150/5340-18D AAS-300 Standards for Airport Sign Systems (Cancelled)

Incorporates new mandatory hold signs that reflect changed standards for the Precision Obstacle Free Zone (POFZ) and Category (CAT II/III ) operations. These changes correspond to revisions to AC 150/5300-13, Airport Design, that change the Precision Object Free Area (POFA) to the POFZ and incorporate new separation standards for taxiways that parallel runways used for certain low visibility operations. This AC cancels AC 150/5340-18C, Standards for Airport Sign Systems, dated July 31, 1991.

150/5300-13 AAS-100 Airport Design (Cancelled)

This advisory circular (AC) provides standards and recommendations for airport design. Consolidated file contains Changes 1-18.

We expect to publish an update to this AC in September 2012. Learn more about the changes planned for AC 150/5300-13A.

Because of the size of this document, it is available as one large file (see Complete Consolidated) or as several smaller files (see Parts 1-4).

Date Cancelled: 09-28-2012
CHANGE 5 (02-14-1997)

Provides guidance to assist airport sponsors in their evaluation and preparation of the airport landing surface to support instrument approach procedures and incorporates change 4 criteria into the airport layout plan preparation guidance.

CHANGE 6 (09-30-2000)
Provides expanded guidance for new approach procedures and incorporates new Flight Standards requirements.
CHANGE 7 (10-01-2002)
Provides new guidance consistent with Runway Safety Area Program requirments, clarifies nighttime threshold siting requirements, and revises new instrument approach procedures and requirements for preparing airport layout plans.
CHANGE 8 (09-30-2004)
Removes Precision Object Free Area (POFA) and establishes Precision Obstacle Free Zone (POFZ), changes standards for the Runway Safety Area, and revises Appendix 2 to allow for greater flexibility in threshold siting criteria.
CHANGE 9 (09-26-2005)
Corrects Table 3-3 and revises Appendix 2 to include standards for runway end siting requirements, including a new 40:1 departure surface.
CHANGE 10 (09-29-2006)
Adds information about tail heights and a table specifying wingspan and tail heights for each Airplane Design Group to Chapter 1, a paragraph about End-Around Taxiways and associated figures and tables to Chapter 4, and a new Appendix 17, Minimum Distances Between Certain Airport Features and Any On-Airport Agriculture Crops. Includes changes to Chapter 1; Tables 2-1, 2-2, 3-1, 3-2, and 3-3; Chapter 4; Appendix 2, and Appendix 16. Cancels Appendices 6 and 7. See also Errata Sheet below.
CHANGE 11 (03-28-2007)
Clarifies the standard for the Runway Protection Zone (RPZ), makes an editorial correction to Table 3-3, and updates the Table of Contents and Figure 2-3.
CHANGE 12 (01-03-2008)
Reschedules the One Engine Inoperative (OEI) implementation date from January 1, 2008, to January 1, 2009. Also requires end-around taxiway projects to be pre-approved by the Office of Airport Safety and Standards, Airport Engineering Division; changes the applicability of Appendix 2, paragraph 3b, to allow the use of these standards to object to objects affecting navigable airspace relative to 14 CFR Part 77; and identifies what Airport Airspace Analysis Survey criteria to use based on current or planned instrument approaches serving the runway ends.
CHANGE 13 (06-19-2008)
Moves data from Table 1 of Advisory Circular (AC) 150/5340-18D, Standards for Airport Sign Systems, into Tables 2-1 and 2-2 of this AC. A new paragraph 213 includes the information from Table 1 and additional information about this change.
CHANGE 14 (11-01-2008)
This Change reschedules the One Engine Inoperative (OEI) implementation date from January 1, 2009, to January 1, 2010.
CHANGE 15 (12-31-2009)

Reschedules the One Engine Inoperative (OEI) implementation date from January 1, 2009, to January 1, 2010. The change also (1) revises table 1-1 to remove the increase in RSA width for an airport reference code (ARC) upgrade from aircraft approach category C to D due to an increase in airport elevation, (2) revises table 2-2 to increase 1 foot per 100 feet increase above sea level all distances for all items for Aircraft Approach Category D to comply with Terminal Instrument Procedures (TERPS), and (3) revises Appendix 14 to include the use of declared distances when the runway threshold is displaced due to obstructions and to clarify the airport owner’s responsibility to provide declared distances for inclusion in the Airport/Facility Directory for each operational runway direction.
