150/5370-14A AAS-100 Hot Mix Asphalt Paving Handbook
Provides guidance on asphalt paving operations, including project organization, mix design, quality control, plant operations, laydown, and compaction.

The Handbook is included in the AC as Appendix 1. Because of its size, the Appendix has been broken up into several smaller files.
150/5320-17 AAS-100 Airfield Pavement Surface Evaluation and Rating Manuals
Provides guidance on understanding and rating the surface condition of flexible and rigid airfield pavements and provides a simple system to visually rate pavement condition.

Because of the size of this document, it is available as one complete file (see Complete) or as three smaller files (see Parts 1-3).
150/5380-7A AAS-100 Airport Pavement Management Program
Discusses the Airport Pavement Management System (APMS) concept, its essential components, and how it can be used to make cost-effective decisions about pavement maintenance and rehabilitation.
150/5370-13A AAS-100 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.
150/5220-9A AAS-300 Aircraft Arresting Systems

Contains FAA standards and recommendations for the installations of aircraft arresting systems on civil airports not owned or operated by the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD). This AC does not describe Engineered Materials Arresting Systems (EMAS). For guidance on EMAS, see AC 150/5220-22, Engineered Materials Arresting Systems (EMAS) for Aircraft Overruns.

150/5370-16 AAS-100 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.
150/5380-6B AAS-100 Guidelines and Procedures for Maintenance of Airport Pavements
Provides guidelines and procedures for maintaining rigid and flexible airport pavements.

Because of the size of this document, it is available as one large file (see Complete) or as several smaller files (see Parts 1-3).
150/5370-12A AAS-100 Quality Control of Construction for Airport Grant Projects
Provides information to ensure the quality of construction accomplished under the Airport Improvement Program (AIP).
150/5380-9 AAS-100 Guidelines and Procedures for Measuring Airfield Pavement Roughness

Provides guidelines and procedures for measuring and evaluating runway roughness as identified by surface profile data of rigid and flexible airport pavements. Provides technical procedures to quantify surface irregularities and to determine how surface irregularities may affect specific categories of airplanes.

150/5370-17 AAS-100 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).

150/5335-5B AAS-100 Standardized Method of Reporting Airport Pavement Strength - PCN

Provides guidance for using the standardized International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) method, called the Aircraft Classification Number – Pavement Classification Number (ACN-PCN) method, to report airport runway, taxiway, and apron pavement strength. Includes instructions for using the COMFAA program to calculate ACN values to determine PCN.

Also provides guidance for reporting changes to airport data that is generally published on Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Form 5010, Airport Master Record, particularly those data elements associated with Gross Weight (Data Elements 35 through 38) and Pavement Classification Number (Data Element 39).

Access COMFAA and related Support Spreadsheet on our Airport Design Software page.

150/5100-13B AAS-100 Development of State Standards for Nonprimary Airports

Provides guidelines for the development of State standards for and the use of State highway specifications for pavement construction at nonprimary public-use airports as provided for in title 49 United States Code (USC), Sections 47105(c) and 47114(d)(5), respectively.

150/5370-2F AAS-100 Operational Safety on Airports During Construction

Provides guidelines for operational safety on airports during construction. Principal changes include prohibiting construction in safety areas when associated runway or taxiway is open, providing guidance for incorporating safety risk management, and including checklists for writing Construction Safety and Phasing Plans (CSPP) and for daily inspections.

150/5370-11B AAS-100 Use of Nondestructive Testing in the Evaluation of Airport Pavements

Focuses on nondestructive testing (NDT) equipment that measures pavement surface deflections after applying a static or dynamic load to the pavement. It also briefly introduces other types of nondestructive measuring equipment to illustrate how supplementing NDT data with other test data may improve the quality and reliability of the pavement evaluation. This version updates Chapter 8, NDT-Based Evaluation and Design Updates, to reflect the requirements of the pavement design program FAARFIELD rather than the previous design program LEDFAA.
