150/5320-12D Draft AC 150/5320-12D, Measurement and Maintenance of Skid-Resistant Airport Pavement Surfaces

This AC contains guidelines and procedures for pavement evaluation with friction measuring equipment, and maintenance of high skid-resistant pavements. The draft adds approved Continuous Friction Measuring Equipment (CFME); moves guidance on the design and construction of skid-resistant pavements to AC 150/5370-10, Standards for Specifying Construction of Airports; and revises the recommended texture measuring techniques and contact information for approved CFME.
