4 IAH CONSTRUCTION IN 1966

5 IAH 1969

6 MID 1980S APPROACH TO RUNWAY 15L

8 FIRST LANDING RUNWAY 9/27 IN 1987

9 Artist's Rendering of Future Terminal A and AB Parking Garage at IAH

10 GROWTH PROJECTIONS l IN 1997 IAH 14TH BUSIEST PASSENGER U.S. AIRPORT AND 21ST IN THE WORLD l BY 2017 BOTH PASSENGER AND AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS ARE EXPECED TO DOUBLE l HOUSTON AIRPORT SYSTEM IN AGGRESSIVE EXPANSION PROJECT l $200,000,000+ SPENT DURING 2000

11 IAH & THE FUTURE l RUNWAY 15R/33L EXPANSION COMPLETE ABOUT MARCH 2002 l RUNWAY 8L/26R OPERATIONAL ABOUT MARCH 2003 l IAB NOW TERMINAL D l HARDY TOLL ROAD CONNECTOR OPENS JANUARY 28th at 10:00 AM

12

13 IAH & THE FUTURE l TAXIWAY/RUNWAY CONSTRUCTION, TERMINAL CONSTRUCTION, CARGO RAMP CONSTRUCTION WILL CREATE NUMEROUS TAXIWAY CLOSURES l WHEN RUNWAY 8L/26R OPENS EXISTING RUNWAY 8/26 THEN KNOWN AS RUNWAY 8R/26L CLOSES FOR 6-8 MONTHS FOR COMPLETE REHAB

14 IAH & THE FUTURE l NEW RENTAL CAR FACILITY l NEW MAIL FACILITY l SECOND TAXIWAY BRIDGE ON SOUTH SIDE OF TERMINALS

15

16 IAH TOWER l RECORD TRAFFIC DAY 1,433 l 1999 TOTAL 467,250 l 1999 TRAFFIC TRAFFIC UP 3.17% OVER 1998 l OUT/OFF TIMES 8.88 FOR 1999 A DECREASE OF 1.88% FROM 1998 WHILE TRAFFIC INCREASED

17 TOWER POSITIONS l 3 LOCAL CONTROLLERS l 2 GROUND CONTROLLERS l CLEARANCE DELIVERY/FLIGHT DATA l TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT l SUPERVISOR l 2 COORDINATOR POSITIONS

18 CONTROLLER TOOLS l DIGITAL ATIS ( ) l PRE-DEPARTURE CLEARANCES l AIRPORT SURFACE DETECTION EQUIPMENT (ASDE)

19

20

21 CONTROLLER TOOLS l NORTH AND SOUTH RAMP TOWERS SOUTH RAMP l PILOT REPORTS VERY HELPFUL IN AREAS NOT VISIBLE FROM THE TOWER!!!!

22

23 AIRPORT CONFIGURATIONS l LANDING RUNWAYS 15L/R RUNWAYS 26/27 DEPARTURE RUNWAYS 15L/R l ARRIVAL TRAFFIC FROM EAST AND SOUTHWEST USES RUNWAYS 26/27 l ARRIVAL TRAFFIC FROM THE NORTHWEST USES RUNWAYS 15L/R

24 LANDING RUNWAYS 15L/R RUNWAYS 26/27 DEPARTING RUNWAYS 15L/R

25 EAST FLOW l LANDING RUNWAYS 8/9 DEPARTING RUNWAYS 8/9 & 15L/R l NORTHBOUND RUNWAY 8 l EASTBOUND RUNWAY 9 l WESTBOUND RUNWAY 15L/R l RUNWAY CENTERLINE CROSSINGS CREATE UNIQUE SITUATIONS

26 LANDING RUNWAYS 8/9 DEPARTING RUNWAYS 8/9/15L/R

27 DEPARTURE PUSHES l LANDING RUNWAYS 26/27 l DEPARTURE RUNWAYS 15L/R RUNWAY 26 l RUNWAY 26 USED PRIMARILY FOR NORTHBOUND OR WESTBOUND TRAFFIC l RUNWAYS 15L/R ALL OTHERS

28 LANDING 26/27 DEPARTING 15L/R & 26

29 ARRIVALS l SIMULTANEOUS AND PARALLEL APPROACHES TO RUNWAYS 26/27 l CONTROLLERS ARE AWARE GENERAL AVIATION PILOTS DESIRE TO LAND RUNWAYS 15L/R l RUNWAY 27 BEST LANDING RUNWAY CURRENTLY DUE TO CONTRUCTION ON NORTH SIDE l FBOS LOCATED ON WEST COMPLEX BOTH SIDES OF RUNWAYS 15L/R

30 ARRIVALS l ADVISE GROUND CONTROL IF UNFAMILIAR/CONSTRUCTION l NO GENERAL AVIATION PARKING ALLOWED AT TERMINALS l QUALITRON AND GARRETT BOTH HAVE COURTESY TRANSPORTATION TO THE TERMINALS l READBACK ALL HOLD SHORT INSTRUCTIONS

31 DEPARTURES l HAVE CURRENT ATIS WHEN YOU CONTACT CLEARANCE DELIVERY l ADVISE CLEARANCE DELIVERY OF LOCATION ON AIRPORT l VFRS ADVISE DIRECTION OF FLIGHT AND REQUESTED ALTITUDE l IFRS EXPECT IAH DP IF LEAVING TERMINAL AREA AND A PDR THAT TIES INTO FILED ROUTE

32 DEPARTURES l ADVISE CLEARANCE WHEN READY TO TAXI l MONITOR GROUND CONTROL, THEY WILL KNOW YOU ARE WAITING l IF RUN-UP IS REQUIRED ADVISE GROUND CONTROL l READBACK ALL HOLD SHORT INSTRUCTIONS

33 DEPARTURES l GROUND CONTROL WILL ASSIGN THE CORRECT TOWER FREQUENCY l IF YOU DESIRE MORE THAN STANDARD WAKE TURBULENCE SEPARATION ADVISE THE CONTROLLER PRIOR TO TAXIING ONTO THE RUNWAY l AOPA VIDEO OPERATIONS AT TOWERED AIRPORTS

34 IAH TOWER ON THE INTERNET

35 WONDER IF I CAN GET A TOUR??
