Off-Peak Construction of Airport Pavements Using Hot-Mix Asphalt
Provides guidance for the planning, coordination, management, design, testing, inspection, and execution of off-peak construction of airport pavements using hot-mix asphalt (HMA) paving materials. Also focuses on HMA airfield pavement construction and applies to other types of airfield improvements where off-peak construction is identified as the preferred delivery method.
Airside Applications for Artificial Turf
Provides guidance for the planning, design, installation, and maintenance of aviation grade artificial turf in areas adjacent to the operational areas of an airport.
Rapid Construction of Rigid (Portland Cement Concrete) Airfield Pavements
Provides guidance for the planning, coordination, management, design, testing, inspection, and execution of rapid construction of rigid (Portland Cement Concrete) airfield pavements. This AC focuses on rigid airfield pavement construction. The material contained herein also applies to other types of airfield improvements where rapid construction is identified as the preferred construction method.
Airside Use of Heated Pavement Systems
Establishes minimum performance requirements for the design, construction, inspection, and maintenance of heated pavement systems for use in the Aircraft Operations Area (AOA).
Guidelines and Procedures for Maintenance of Airport Pavements
This AC provides guidelines and procedures for maintaining airport pavements.
Airport Pavement Management Program (PMP)
This AC discusses the Airport Pavement Management Program (PMP) concept, its essential components, and how it is used to make cost-effective decisions about pavement maintenance and rehabilitation (M&R).
Provides standards for the design of heliports serving helicopters with single rotors. Basic concepts can also be applied to facilities serving helicopters with tandem (front and rear) or dual (side by side) rotors; although many standards will not apply to these facilities.
This version adds guidance for pavement or structure larger than the touchdown and liftoff area (TLOF), but less than the size of the final approach and take off (FATO); turbulence effects; clearance between parking areas and taxi routes and within parking areas; minimum dimensions of curved approach/departure airspace; Touchdown/Positioning Circle (TDPC) Marking; Flight Path Alignment Guidance markings and lights; Emergency Helicopter Landing Facility Requirements (EHLF); FATO to FATO separation distance for simultaneous operations; revised standards for size of “H” for general aviation heliports; increased TLOF size when the FATO of a hospital heliport is not load bearing; and Heliport Protection Zone (HPZ) for hospital heliports. See "Principal Changes" for a complete list.
This AC provides guidance to assist operators in planning, designing, and constructing seaplane bases and associated facilities.
