Federal Aviation Administration 1 TERPS Airport Obstruction Standards Committee (AOSC) AC 150/ Change 9 and 10 Airport and Aeronautical Surveys Presentation to: Penn State Airports Conference, Hershey, PA. Name: Timothy Roe Date: 03/01/2006
Federal Aviation Administration 2 Overview Introduction (Obligatory Joke) AOSC Overview TERPS Change 9 and 10 to AC 150/ Airport and Aeronautical Surveys Questions
Federal Aviation Administration 3 Airport Obstructions Standards Committee (AOSC) Chartered May 2003 works across all to transform outdated, inconsistent obstruction standards, and practices balancesThe AOSC works across all FAA lines of business to transform outdated, inconsistent obstruction standards, and practices to future policy that optimally balances operational safety, effectiveness, and economic benefit
Federal Aviation Administration 4 AOSC Steering Group Reports to Deputy Administrator, ADA-1 AOSC Steering Group Membership Ruth Leverenz, ARC-1 Kate Lang, ARP-1 (Acting) Russ Chew, ATO-1 Nick Sabatini, AVS-1

Federal Aviation Administration 15 Decision Document #02 40:1 Departure Surface Decision document #02 committed the Agency to… Establish a consistent 40:1 OCS standard Provide departure obstacle information to aircraft operators for all 40:1 penetrations Revise both the internal coordination procedures and the policy criteria governing the circularization process in the OE/AAA program.
Federal Aviation Administration 16 Change 9 to AC 150/ Added a New Departure Surface : Consistent with TERPS and FAR guidance Added to Appendix 2 Applicable to all instrument runways with departure procedures Added a New One Engine In-Operable(OEI) Survey Surface: Applicable at all runway ends used for air carrier departures Surface to be included in the ALP and made available to all air carriers at the airport Does not take effect until January 1,2008Does not take effect until January 1,2008
Federal Aviation Administration 17 AC 150/ Change 10 ARP will include 40:1 OCS clarification in change 10 of AC 150/ Departure Surfaces For Designated Runways The Airport Sponsor through ARP to the RAPTidentify runway end(s) intended primarily for instrument departures.The applicability of the surface table A2-1 is dependant on the designation of primary runway(s) for departure. The Airport Sponsor through ARP to the RAPT, will identify runway end(s) intended primarily for instrument departures. The determination of primary runway(s) for departure does not prohibit or negate the use of other runways. It only identifies the applicability of the A2-1 surface to the runway end(s).
Federal Aviation Administration 18 40:1 Departure Surface
Federal Aviation Administration 19 OEI Departure Surface
Federal Aviation Administration 20 Action Plan ARP: Develop guidance consistent with this decision ATO: Work with airports to develop operational guidance using existing infrastructure (e.g., outer taxiways) AVS: Provide guidance to supercede TIL A and emphasize that draft TIL has been withdrawn Provide guidance to National Flight Procedures Group exempting the application of the above guidance during the bi-annual review process for existing procedures Update and refine the Safety Assessment Toolset Review standards based on updated toolset
Federal Aviation Administration 21 Decision Document 04 Runway to Parallel Taxiway Separation guidance must be consistentIn support of Agency’s commitment to ensure safe precision approach and landing operations, policy clarification is needed, and the Airports Design A/C, TERPS and other guidance must be consistent (i.e., taxiing, parked and holding aircraft are obstacles)
Federal Aviation Administration 22 Construction of New Runways/Parallel Taxiways All CAT I operations 400 ft separation(500 ft for Group VI) CAT II/III Operations Groups I-IV aircraft ft separation Group V aircraft ft separation* Group VI aircraft ft separation* * if Airport elects to proceed with construction
Federal Aviation Administration 23 Existing Infrastructure The Agency will work with airports to develop operational guidance where compliance can be achieved utilizing existing infrastructure without significant impact on airport efficiency. Note that Airport improvement projects where a Draft Environmental Impact Statement was issued prior to approval of AOSC DD01 on December 18, 2003 will be treated as existing infrastructure.
Federal Aviation Administration 24 Airport Surveying-GIS Program Overview FAA Survey Initiative LPV (WAAS) Questions
Federal Aviation Administration 25 FAA Survey Initiative Airport Surveying-GIS Program (e-ALP)
Federal Aviation Administration 26 Airport Surveying – GIS Program Purpose Reduce the FAA’s use of NGS for field surveys and Transition the Survey to Private Contractors Allow surveys conducted by commercial enterprises/surveyors to use Federal Grants as well as other State & Local Aviation Resources. Standardize the Survey Process in a Cost-Effective and Expedited Manner Increase the Number of Surveys Conducted Annually Provide data for a standard GIS database capable of producing Digital ALPs and OC Drawings.
Federal Aviation Administration 27 Airport Surveying-GIS Program Objectives Create a Standardized Process for Conducting Aeronautical Surveys – Advisory Circulars Create an Airport Geographic Information (GIS) System Website and Database Develop Technical Guidance, Instructions and Templates on contracting out and/or conducting Aeronautical Surveys for Airport Sponsors Develop Tools for Airports and Surveyors to Capture and Provide Survey Data in Digital Form (ADCAT Program) Consolidate all FAA Airport Data Requirements into a New Standard for Airport Layout Data to support FAA and Industry
Federal Aviation Administration 28 Aeronautical Surveys Airport Sponsor Request AIP Grant 3 rd Party Survey Data Logger Checks and Formats Data AVN NACO Data Acceptable NGS Validation Data Not Acceptable ADCAT GIS Database E-NASR
Federal Aviation Administration 29 LPV Implementation FAA Program Goals 150 approaches to be implemented in FY-05, 300 approaches in FY 06, FY-07, FY-08 WAAS Office funds most surveys in FY-05, FY-06 ARP Survey Program transitions in FY-07 to fund surveys through third parties. Selection of R/W Ends Led by ATO and ARP Input from Airport Sponsors, and user groups
Federal Aviation Administration 30 FY 07 and Beyond Runway ends surveyed by airport/contractor or NGS Survey completed with Federal, state, and local funds at eligible airports Selection of R/W Ends Led by ARP and ATO Airport sponsor-driven process Input from WAAS Office, AVN, and AOPA
