Description

This AC provides guidance to assist airport operators in developing a snow and ice control plan, assessing and reporting airport conditions through the utilization of the Runway Condition Assessment Matrix (RCAM), and establishing snow removal and control procedures. Consolidated version includes Changes 1 and 2.

For implementation purposes, all certificated airports must submit revised Snow and Ice Control Plans to the FAA no later than September 1, 2016, for approval.  The Federal NOTAM System is the primary means of conveying airport condition information by certificated and federally obligated airports.  Effective October 1, 2016, the Federal NOTAM System will incorporate the new reporting criteria and methodology contained in this AC.
