11 State Dollars for Your Airport Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
State Dollars for Your Airport is on our website: The document can be found under “Publications and Forms”. This is a “How to…” manual for airport managers, sponsoring agencies, and ALUC’s to better understand the funding programs and application procedures. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

12 State Aviation Legislation Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
AB 511, Assembly Member Yamada This bill would add a section to the State Aeronautics Act. It would require marking and lighting for all Meteorological Evaluation Towers (MET) erected to gather wind data at locations where wind energy facilities may be built. Discussion on this bill stopped late last year but is expected to resume in April 2012. This bill would add state requirements to tracking, marking and lighting these towers. Some other states already have similar requirements in place. The FAA only makes recommendations. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

13 State Aviation Legislation Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
AB 662, Assembly Member Hueso-Chula Vista This would require that new airport land use compatibility plans that are required to include AICUZ data go through a NEPA review first. If not, the AICUZ won’t need to be integrated into the CLUP. The bill is currently inactive. If this status remain for another week, the bill will not be considered for additional debate or future implementation. This bill has become inactive for a short time so the City of Coronado, the bill’s sponsor, and the Military folks can focus on resolving their differences. The City of Coronado is concerned that the new land use compatibility plan being drawn up by the Airport Authority could limit development in the City. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

14 State Aviation Legislation Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
SB 446, State Senator Dutton-Rancho Cucamonga This legislation would establish the Ontario International Airport Authority and require the transfer of management and operational control of the Ontario International Airport from the City of Los Angeles to the authority. Discussion on this bill stopped late last year, but it could resume next month. This effort by Ontario to take back their airport has been playing out in the media over the last few months. If things don’t get ironed out between Ontario and LAWA then Senator Dutton reserves the right to bring this bill up for consideration next month. PAX traffic down 30% in last 2 years.

15 State Aviation Legislation Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
SB 619, State Senator Fuller-Bakersfield This bill provides an exemption from the regulatory jurisdiction of the state Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) to flight instructors and flight schools. This bill passed at the end of last year’s session and is now law. Without this bill, flight instructors and schools were looking at complying with some new and expensive regulations that would put many of them out of business. This bill reinstates an exemption that was lost in the passage of a recently passed bill. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

25 2012 Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
$3.62 billion 2,057 projects Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) The CIP is one element of the overall California Aviation System Plan (CASP), which takes the Department’s aviation planning to programming. It details airport project needs within the state for the next five to ten years. Projects are selected based on a priority matrix approved by the CTC, based on safety first. A project must be in the CIP in order to obtain State funding. We’re developing the 2012 Aero Program off the 2011 CIP. The biennial Capital Improvement Plan element of the California Aviation System Plan (CASP) is required by State law PUC Projects in the CIP are selected for funding under the California Aid to Airports Program (CAAP) with the Aeronautics funding Program. The CIP covers 5-10 years. State law requires 10 years while the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) reports a 5 year Airport Capital Improvement Plan (ACIP). CIP compiles capital needs for California’s public-use, public-owned airports. CIP serves is an unconstrained fiscal estimate for current and future airport development projects. Projects will be selected from the CIP to form the biennial Aeronautics funding Program. The Program contains 3 FY’s.. The priority matrix is used to select projects from the CIP.

26 Airport IQ Database (ASM): Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
Airport Manager’s Current Contact Information Database Upgrade and Support Our database is called “Airport IQ” or “ASM” Airport System Manager. We need the airports to keep us up to date on their contact information for grant management, emergencies and day-to-day information operations. It’s a web-based database for public use airports and staff. Airport managers can enter in their project information via the internet using a secure user name and password. They can view their contact information and update their project’s descriptions, cost and year on-line for our CIP. Airport information such as inspection dates, runway information airport operation information, as well as planning information is available to Aero staff to use. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

27 Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
Project Delivery Acquisition and Development Project Grants (90% State match) 2010 Aeronautics Program: 42 projects, $5.7 Million First FY 10/11 Allocated, Now need to Allocate 2nd FY 11/12 2006 and 2008 Programs plus new Projects rolled into 2010 2012 Draft Aeronautics Program: 18 Projects, $2.7 Million Draft Submitted to TACA Jan 2012 Info Item CTC May for Adoption by CTC June 2012 All projects in the Aeronautics Program will be subject to the Commission’s 2010 STIP Guidelines Timely Use of Funds (TUF) policy: A project must be allocated in the year it was programmed. A project must be in the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) to be eligible for matching grant funding. The CIP is a 5-10 year projection of airport project needs done every other ODD year – September 2011 CIP. The Aeronautics (Aero) Program is a 3-Year Program done every other EVEN year - July 2012, for the next FY 12/13, 13/14 & 14/15. A&D Grants – PS&E – Capital Improvement Projects for public use, public owned General Aviation (GA) 2010 Aero Program: Of these 42 projects, 23 projects are new and 19 project are previously programmed projects. Projects in the 2006 or 2008 Program that were NOT allocated were rolled up into the new 2010 Program. So the new program has older and newer projects totaling 42. 2012 Aero Program: 18 New Projects sorted from 2011 CIP based on 1-9 Priority Ranking (Safety then Capacity). Not as many projects as 2010 because of economy and that the 2010 combined older programs. TUF: Timely Use of Funds: Requires a project to come in for allocation in the FY programmed or the project will lapse and be withdrawn from the Aeronautics Program. What does this mean? Just because a project is in the program, it must go back to the CTC to get allocated. The airport must submit an A&D form and Resolution from their Board of Supervisors or similar authority.

28 Airport Pavement Maintenance System
Surveyed 85 GA airports in CA from Airport Pavement Maintenance System (APMS) Identifies the airport’s surface pavement condition index (PCI) (ranges from 0(failed) -100 (excellent)). Purpose: Maintain and update the APMS contract, which identifies approx. 200 smaller airport pavement needs and estimates costs. Educates Airport managers on importance pavement maintenance – to upkeep pavements and to delay the need for total rehabilitation of runways. Currently working on a APMS FAA Airport Improvement Plan (AIP) Grant to conduct 85 surveys at $600K. Then hopefully another contract will be granted to finish the remaining airports. FAA determined the list of NPIAS airports. Hill International is the consultant and as of Jan 2012, 80 of the 85 airports have been surveyed throughout the state and the final reports should be all completed by April 2012.

29 Resurface Runway &Parking Ramp $140K Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
Blue Canyon Airport Resurface Runway &Parking Ramp $140K Before After The Blue Canyon Airport is situated along Interstate 80 at the Blue Canyon exit in the Sierra Nevada Mountain range above the 5000ft elevation. The runway of the airport sustained damage during the U.S. Forest Service efforts combating the July 2008 American River Complex Fire. The runway damage consisted of aviation fuel spills that cause the asphalt emulsion to dissolve and significantly reduce the structural integrity of the affected area and substantial ruts caused by the helicopter skids. Placer County Department of Public Works began the process of rehabilitating the runway and ramp by isolating the contaminated runway areas for hazardous waste testing and removal of the contaminated materials by an approved contractor. Once the material was removed the holes where backfilled and compacted with Class 2 ¾” Maximum Gradation aggregate base in accordance to Section 26 of Caltrans Standard Specifications and then capped to original grade with a minimum of six inches of ½” MAS Type A (PG64-10) in accordance to Section 39 of Caltrans Standard Specifications. The other areas damaged by the fire effort where ground out to a depth of four inches and replaced with the same ½” MAS Type A asphalt. Once the runway was patched the airport ramp was cleaned, cracks sealed and a tack coat applied prior to placement of 1 ½” of hot mix asphalt, the same mix used to patch the runway. With the ramp competed preparations were made for the placement of the slurry coat on the runway. All patches were measured for flatness and areas deemed excessive where ground to tolerance and swept clean. The final process was the placement of the polymer modified asphaltic emulsion (Slurry Seal) grade PMCQS1h with Type II aggregate and then rolled by a neumatic roller to ensure adhesion to the runway. Project completed Jan Total project cost $165 K State max. $140 K Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

30 Shelter Cove Airport Runway Overlay & Restripe Pavement $499K
Before After Shelter Cove Airport is a small, public-use general aviation airport located on 50 acres of land, one mile west of Shelter Cove in Humboldt County. The Shelter Cove Resort Improvement District (District) manages and operates the airport consisting of a single 3,400 foot long by 60 foot wide paved runway. This remote facility sits at the base of mountains, bookended by ocean cliffs. With waves crashing up near the ends of the runway, the Shelter Cove Airport has one of the most stunning visuals upon approach. Due to its remote location and limited access, Shelter Cove Airport is a very important asset to its community. An ambulance ride to the nearest hospital takes hours, which could mean the difference between life and death. Many lives have been saved by aircraft transport from this airport. Shelter Cove Airport is also a valuable staging area for fire fighters and Coast Guard rescue operations, as well as for the California Department of Forestry, Bureau of Land Management, Department of Fish and Game, and law enforcement agencies. This airport allows residents to live in one of the world's most beautiful places without sacrificing their safety and sense of security.  Airports are not merely important for staging and emergencies – they are considered on- and off-ramps to the entire air transportation system, and Caltrans takes the responsibility of their safety seriously. Division of Aeronautics (Division) staff are responsible for conducting inspections on California’s public-use airports. Aviation Safety Officers possess the authority to suspend an airport permit if they determine that the site may no longer be safely used because of a change in physical or legal conditions.  In March 2011, Division staff inspected the Shelter Cove Airport and found that the runway was in poor condition. Cracks and broken asphalt pieces littered the runway and created Foreign Object Debris in the form of loose surface fines and gravel. Repair would require a two inch overlay of asphalt concrete and restriped runway markings to meet Federal Aviation Administration standards.  To assist in enhancing safety, rehabilitating the runway, and reducing further deterioration, the Division granted the airport Acquisition and Development Program funds. The Shelter Cove Resort Improvement District received $499,000 toward the repaving project with a total cost of $563,000. The District paid $30,000 for resurfacing six parking spaces: three spaces overlay, three spaces filled/rolled with asphalt grindings. Construction began in November 2011 and was completed in December 2011.  “The District is appreciative of the partnership with the Division of Aeronautics and their participation in this project,” said Shelter Cove Airport Manager, Richard Culp. Now, users of the Shelter Cove Airport will be able to experience the beauty and serenity of this remote airport as well as a safe and smooth landing.
