This AC provides limited guidance on understanding and rating the surface condition of flexible (asphalt) and rigid (concrete) airfield pavements. Appendices A and B of this AC include the Asphalt and Concrete Airfield Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating Manuals (PASER Manuals). The FAA recommends the information and procedures contained in the manuals for use by airport staff and consultants, directly or in combination with additional testing and data collection, only when it is not possible to complete a more detailed pavement condition index (PCI) survey as part of a more comprehensive pavement maintenance management program.
