1 DANVILLE CITY COUNCIL WORK SESSION AUGUST 3,

2 THE CHALLENGE: ACCOMPLISH NEEDED FEDERALLY-FUNDED IMPROVE- MENTS TO THE AIRPORTS PRIMARY RUNWAY WHILE MINIMIZING OPERATIONAL IMPACTS AND PRESERVING IMPORTANT EXISTING AIRPORT FEATURES. 2 CURRENT FEDERAL AVIATION AUTHORITY (FAA) DESIGN STANDARDS FOR AIRPORTS WITH JET OPERATIONS SIMILAR TO DANVILLES AIRPORT CALL FOR SHORTER, MORE NARROW RUNWAYS AND TAXIWAYS THAN ARE NOW IN PLACE. TO DOWNSIZE DANVILLES AIRPORT WOULD SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCE ITS ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT POTENTIAL. THE FAA S CAPITAL PROJECT FOCUS IS ON STANDARDIZING AIRPORT INFRASTRUCTURE RATHER THAN MINIMIZING OPERATIONAL IMPACTS DURING CONSTRUCTION. THE FAA SHOULD IMPLEMENT THE DANVILLE PROJECT IN A FASHION THAT SUSTAINS BASIC OPERATIONS.

3 PROPOSED STRATEGY: WITH ASSISTANCE OF THE CONGRESSIONAL DELEGATION AND COMMONWEALTH OF VIRGINIA, SECURE MODIFICATIONS TO STANDARD TO ALLOW FOR NECESSARY IMPROVEMENTS, MINIMIZE COSTS AND OPERATIONAL IMPACTS, AND PRESERVE CURRENT AIRPORT FEATURES. 3

7 REDUCE THE LENGTH OF RUNWAY BY 607 NARROW THE PRIMARY RUNWAY TO 100 NARROW TAXIWAYS TO 35 IN WIDTH CORRECT LINE OF SIGHT OBSTRUCTION – 2600 MODIFY DRAINAGE ALONG 5000 OF RUNWAY GRADE AREAS OUTSIDE RUNWAY REDUCE PAVEMENT STRENGTH TO 66,000 LBS 7

8 AVAILABLE RUNWAY PAVEMENT WILL BE LESS THAN 3000 FEET JET AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS WILL BE RESTRICTED NO INSTRUMENT APPROACHES WILL BE AVAILABLE FUEL SALES WILL BE REDUCED BY MORE THAN FIFTY PERCENT FLIGHT INSTRUCTION AND CAP ACTIVITIES WILL BE CONSTRAINED ANTICIPATED LOSS OF MULTI-ENGINE AIRCRAFT BASED AT AIRPORT 8

10 PAVED AIRCRAFT OVERRUN AREA WILL BE REDUCED IN LENGTH JET AIRCRAFT OPERATIONS WILL BE RESTRICTED BASED ON LOAD FUEL SALES WILL BE REDUCED THIRTY-FIVE FT WIDE TAXIWAYS WILL RESTRICT LARGE JET AIRCRAFT ACCESS AIRPORT DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES WILL BE CONSTRAINED 10

11 OUR RECOMMENDATIONS TO IMPROVE SAFETY AND ACCESS A – Maintain runway length, width and paved aircraft overrun area B - Correct line of sight obstruction C - Correct drainage adjacent along 5000 pavement section D - Maintain existing drainage system for new pavement section that presently meets FAA design standards E - Maintain width of all taxiways F - Program funds to accelerate project * Sequence construction work to maintain 3000 feet of available pavement 11
