1 ACRP Report 58: Aviation-Industry Issue Familiarization for Part-time Airport Policy Makers December 2011

2 Background information The administration and governance of an airport can prove quite challenging to inexperienced airport managers and policy makers that serve on airport boards, commissions, authorities, or similar organizations. Airport Cooperative Research Programs project 11/02 (Task 15) will help familiarize policy makers and new airport managers with a broad range of airport issues. The following presentation is a companion to the ACRP Report 58: Airport Industry Familiarization and Training for Part-time Airport Policy Makers. This presentation may serve as a standalone brief overview to help familiarize the audience with airport issues or it can be viewed in a group presentation. There are notes for each slide to help the viewer (or presenter) understand the intent of each slide. Therefore, viewers and presenters should use the Power Point Notes Page mode. It will take minutes to go through this presentation. The report and this companion presentation were prepared by Delta Airport Consultants, Inc. with graphics assistance by Lyonshare Studios, LLC.

3 The following presentation provides information about airport issues. New airport policy makers typically receive an airport orientation briefing specifically about their airport when they come on board, followed by an airport tour. Recommended items to include in the briefing about the local airport are shown in the companion report and are: Airport history and mission statement Organizational structure Charters, by-laws, and enabling legislation Airport finances and budget (income, expenses, reserves, and bonds/debt) Capital improvement funding – general information Airport statistics – activity, fuel sales, airline information Projects – now and in the future; contract awards and procurement of professional services Airfield operations – safety programs, aircraft rescue and firefighting, snow removal, security Role of airport policy maker and airport management staff Homework/take home items – annual financial report, executive summary of airport master plan, minutes of board meetings, enabling legislation, board member list, mission statement, and this ACRP primer slide presentation and/or report Now, on to the presentation…..
