1 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization Program

2 2 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Introduction Welcome to the Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization Program. This Familiarization program is designed to prepare you to use a streamlined aircraft procedure request environmental process, which will be implemented soon. The goal is to standardize and streamline the process in preparation for Nextgen, which will provide new ways for aircraft to operate in the National Airspace System (NAS).

3 3 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Introduction The content of this program is divided into four main topics, which are covered individually in the following modules: 1. Familiarization Program Overview 2. Changes in the Environmental Process 3. Aircraft Procedure Environmental Prescreening Filter 4. Review of Filter Results

4 4 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Basic Environmental Process Unchanged The basic steps of the Environmental Process will not be much different than they are now. There are only a few new procedural and role modifications that you will need to know about, and these relatively minor changes will be covered in modules 2 and 4. The rest will be old hat, so after providing quick descriptions of the changes, the focus of the familiarization will shift to the biggest difference in the process…

5 5 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Supplemental Familiarization Materials The learning objectives for the familiarization will be presented at the beginning of each module to which they apply. In addition to the informational components of the familiarization program, such as this PowerPoint presentation, the following familiarization materials will be provided for use during familiarization and for reference afterwards.

9 9 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Module 2 Changes in the Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process

10 10 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Introduction This goal of this module is to prepare you to identify the changes that will soon occur in the environmental process to obtain a categorical exclusion (CATEX) or a need for additional environmental review.

11 11 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Learning Objectives This instructional module will prepare you to identify the: Information needed for evaluation by the Aircraft Procedure Environmental Pre-screening Filter, Parts of the Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process User Guide that provide additional information related to the environmental process, and Steps in the aircraft procedure request environmental process at which a proposed procedure could receive a CATEX, be sent for additional environmental review, or returned to the proponent.

12 12 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Streamlined Environmental Process Benefits The environmental process has been streamlined to enable participants to: Understand each step in the process as it relates to environmental issues, Use one environmental process for all proposed procedures, and Optimize the use of resources in reviewing proposed procedures.

13 13 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Streamlined Environmental Process Benefits The environmental process: Is consistent, repeatable, and efficient Is based on fully defined roles and their corresponding tasks, Includes environmental concepts in the early planning of changes of airspace and Manages proposed procedure development changes to ensure that changes outside of the established environmental parameters are returned for additional environmental review.

14 14 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Who Will Find the Streamlined Process Helpful? The streamlined environmental process was designed to serve the following groups: Proponents, Flight-standard-service (AFS) specialists, Operations-support-group (OSG) flight- procedures-team (FPT) specialists, OSG environmental specialists, AeroNav Products, and Third-party developers.

15 15 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process The process-flow diagram below depicts a high- level view of the aircraft procedure request environmental process. Perform Additional Environmental Review Complete/ Update Procedure Action Design Publish or Implement Procedure Complete Environmental Pre-screening Filter Review Environmental Submission Develop Procedure Need for New/Updated Aircraft Procedure YES NO Passed Environmental Review? No Changes or Changes within Environmental Parameters? New/Updated Procedure Published or Implemented Receive FAA Responsible Federal Official (RFO) Approval

16 16 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 The process starts with a proponents request to design a new or to update an existing aircraft procedure, and culminates in either the publication or implementation of the procedure by the FAA. Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process

17 17 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 The first step in this process involves the completion of an action design, which is prerequisite to the environmental process. Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Perform Additional Environmental Review Complete/ Update Procedure Action Design Publish or Implement Procedure Complete Environmental Pre-screening Filter Review Environmental Submission Develop Procedure Need for New/Updated Aircraft Procedure YES NO Passed Environmental Review? No Changes or Changes within Environmental Parameters? New/Updated Procedure Published or Implemented Receive FAA Responsible Federal Official (RFO) Approval

18 18 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 The next step is for the proponent to complete an aircraft procedure environmental pre-screening filter. Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Perform Additional Environmental Review Complete/ Update Procedure Action Design Publish or Implement Procedure Complete Environmental Pre-screening Filter Review Environmental Submission Develop Procedure Need for New/Updated Aircraft Procedure YES NO Passed Environmental Review? No Changes or Changes within Environmental Parameters? New/Updated Procedure Published or Implemented Receive FAA Responsible Federal Official (RFO) Approval

19 19 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 The result will be one of two outcomes: identification of a possible CATEX or the need for additional environmental review. In both cases, the filter will create a summary of the proponent information entered. When the filter identifies a CATEX, it will also produce an unofficial CATEX Declaration. Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process

20 20 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Aircraft Procedure Environmental Pre-screening Filter The filter is an automated PDF. The filter will provide information in an efficient, repeatable, and time-saving manner.

21 21 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 After entering information concerning a proposed procedure into the filter, proponents will know whether a CATEX is identified, or whether further environmental review will be required. Aircraft Procedure Environmental Pre-screening Filter

22 22 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 The filter replaces the existing manual checklist. The new automated process should reduce the volume of paperwork and will provide more detailed information than was previously gathered. Aircraft Procedure Environmental Pre-screening Filter

The expected outcomes from the OSG FPT are to: Produce an approved CATEX declaration to be included in the procedure package Send a completed procedure package to AeroNav Products for development if the conditions for a CATEX are met, or Forward the procedure package to the OSG Environmental Specialist if a CATEEX can not be identified or return the filter results to the proponent to determine next steps

38 38 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 OSG Environmental Specialists If additional environmental review is required for pubic procedures, an OSG environmental specialist will conduct the environmental review and use the filter results to determine whether the proposed procedure meets the conditions for: A CATEX declaration, An environmental assessment (EA) The OSG environmental specialist will send the results of the additional environmental review to OSG FPT for processing.

39 39 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 AeroNav Products When AeroNav Products receives a completed public procedure package, containing all the required documents from OSG FPT or AFS via the Procedure Tracking System (PTS), AeroNav Products will determine whether procedure changes are required.

40 40 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 AeroNav Products If no changes are needed, or if changes were made within the environmental parameters, AeroNav Products: Develops the proposed procedure, Makes any necessary changes to procedure, and Forwards the completed procedure package for publication after receiving the approval of a responsible federal official (RFO).

41 41 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 AeroNav Products If changes were made that were outside of parameters, AeroNav Products returns the procedure package to OSG FPT for review with the proponent to determine next steps.

42 42 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Module 3 Aircraft Procedure Environmental Pre-screening Filter

43 43 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Introduction The goal of this module is to understand the filter and how it is used.

44 44 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Learning Objectives This instructional module will prepare you to: Access the filter, Enter information into the filter, and Recognize the filter outputs

45 45 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Live Filter Demonstration

46 46 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Module 4 Review of Filter Results

47 47 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Introduction The goal of this module is to recognize whether the results of the filter are compliant with FAA Order 1050.1E paragraph 303C.

48 48 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Learning Objectives This instructional module will prepare you to: Recognize whether a CATEX identified by the filter is compliant with FAA Order 1050.1E paragraph 303C, Use the CATEX quick-reference card and the Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process User Guide to recognize whether a CATEX identified by the filter is complaint with FAA Order 1050.1E paragraph 303C. Use the CATEX quick-reference card to identify the qualification criteria associated with a CATEX identified by the filter.

49 49 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Overview As noted in module two, the filter will improve the environmental process by increasing consistency, repeatability, and efficiency during the review process.

50 50 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Overview However, the filter will never be used as a substitute for human expertise in the review process. In fact, human expertise will be essential in reviewing the output(s) of the filter. The FAA personnel who have been responsible for environmental review in the past will retain their roles as reviewers.

51 51 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Overview However, instead of reviewing the checklists submitted by proponents…

52 52 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Overview …they will be reviewing the output(s) of the filter after proponents have entered their information into the filter.

53 53 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Overview The rest of the traditional process for conducting environmental review of proposed procedures will remain essentially the same. Because FAA personnel are already familiar with this process, the following description focuses mainly on the part that will be a little different – the review of the filter output(s). The rest of the proposed procedure review will be summarized to note the minor changes that will occur after the initial review has been completed.

54 54 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results The FAA environmental review begins when the filter identifies a possible CATEX or the need for additional environmental review. In both cases, the filter produces a PDF document, summarizing the information entered by the proponent.

55 55 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results If a CATEX is identified, the filter also issues an unofficial CATEX Declaration, stating the appropriate FAA order that corresponds to the specified CATEX. The CATEX Declaration can only be approved after FAA review.

56 56 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results The PDF information summary generated by the filter, as well as the CATEX identified, will be emailed to the FAA official who has been assigned to review the proposed procedure.

57 57 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results The possible recipients of the filter are: A member of the operational-support-group (OSG) flight-procedure team (FPT) if the proposed procedure is not from a third party An OSG environmental specialist if additional environmental review or the proposed procedure is from a third party.

58 58 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results The CATEX quick-reference card contains information beneficial to reviewing the filter results. It can be used as a guide to determine if all of the information needed for an identified CATEX has been included. Once the CATEX type is determined, the General Checklist and CATEX Specific Checks sections of the Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process User Guide can be used to further evaluate if the information provided is complete and complies with FAA Order 1050.1E paragraph 303c.

59 59 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results To use these tables, first determine the type of proposed procedure by looking at the bottom of page one on the completed filter PDF. Either the New Procedure or the Change to an Existing Procedure box will be selected.

60 60 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results Next, determine whether the proposed procedure is a helicopter-only request.

61 61 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results If the answer to the question, Is this a helicopter-only request?, was no, refer to the: New or Existing Procedure Quick-reference Card

62 62 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results To determine the correct CATEX type, match the following field information on the PDF to the card : Type of Procedure Administrative Change (Existing Only) Minimum Altitude of Procedure Noise Sensitive Areas Multiple Aircraft Type Total Annual Operations Single Aircraft Type Total Annual Operations

63 63 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results If the answer to the question, Is this a helicopter-only request?, is yes, refer to the Helicopter-only Procedure Quick-reference Card.

64 64 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results

65 65 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Reviewing The Filter Results To determine the correct CATEX type, match the following field information on the PDF to the card: Type of Procedure Administrative Change Minimum Altitude of Procedure Emergency Helicopter Request Noise Sensitive Areas Daily Helicopter Operations Over a Major Thoroughfare

66 66 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Leveraging the User Guide The General Checklist and the CATEX-specific checks in the Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process User Guide contains information that will be beneficial in reviewing the filter output(s) including: The quick-reference card A general checklist, CATEX-specific checks that provide CATEX outcomes by type and the conditions required for each.

67 67 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Leveraging the User Guide The general checklist presents CATEX outcomes in detail to enable reviewers to follow the logical sequences of conditions necessary to verify that the filter output(s) are complete and compliant with FAA Order 1050.1E paragraph 303C. In addition, the details of the question-and-answer process of entering information into the filter are listed.

68 68 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Leveraging the User Guide OSG FPT and AFS specialists can use the user guide to assist them in reviewing the filter output(s).

69 69 Federal Aviation Administration Aircraft Procedure Request Environmental Process Familiarization 2013 Leveraging the User Guide The checklist helps reviewers determine whether they would reach the same conclusion if presented with the same information. Consequently, the task of matching the information in the PDF information summary with the appropriate section of the checklist is vital to reviewers understanding of the reasons for the filter results. Proposed procedures that can not be identified for a CATEX will require additional environmental review.
