13 State Aviation Legislation Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
AB 1660, (Emergency Aircraft Flights) This bill would amend Public Utilities Code (PUC) regarding emergency aircraft flights. Such flights are exempt in the PUC from adopted local ordinances with respect to the time of day they fly, their noise signature and aircraft type. This bill would extend the local ordinance exemption to the non-emergency flight back to the aircraft’s operational base. Status -- This bill is now law as of July 1, 2010. SB 1141, (Airports: Airport Land Use Commissions) This bill would prevent some airports in counties without an Airport Land Use Commission (ALUC) or authorized alternative planning body from receiving annual credit grants from the Aeronautics Account. Some exceptions apply. SB 1141 would also allow the Division of Aeronautics to provide some funds for ALUC or authorized alternative planning body start-up costs. Status -- This bill has been approved by the Legislature and will next be presented to the Governor for his approval or veto. SB 1333, Senator Yee-San Francisco/San Mateo, District 8 (Airports: Avigation Easements) This bill seeks to have avigation easements granted to airports earlier in the land development process rather than when a project’s certificate of occupancy is issued. Easements would terminate if a project is not fully developed. Status--This bill has been approved by the Legislature and will next be presented to the Governor for his approval or veto. AB 2173, Assembly Member Beall-San Jose, District 24 (Emergency Air Medical Transportation Providers) This bill provides for increased Medi-Cal funding of emergency air ambulance transportation by imposing a $4 fee on each motor vehicle violation in California, with the exception of parking violations.

16 Office of Aviation Planning
California Aviation System Plan: 2010 System Needs Assessment. To be approved by CTC September 22-23, Will be posted on Aeronautics Website. It is a reference for airport managers to consider when inputting projects in the 2011 CIP. Airport Cooperative Research Program Synthesis S10-06: Investigating Safety Impacts of Energy Technologies on Airports and Aviation. Final expected May 2011.

17 2010 California Airport Land Use Planning Handbook Update
Key Objectives: Update for changes in law and regulation. Update accident data and revise discussion of risk and safety zones. Additional guidance on infill development. Provide more “self help” and templates for ALUC staff and commissioners, particularly for small jurisdictions. Incorporate additional guidance for California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) compliance. Provide information on NextGen and implications for future airport land use compatibility planning. These are some of the highlights included in the scope of work for the 2010 Handbook Update. There will be more outreach and stakeholder input then last time. It’s important to update the Handbook to make it consistent with changes to the PUC and FAA Regulations. Updating the accident data is a necessary thing to make the information in the Handbook useful. The safety zones are based on accident data. Clarification on Zone 1 and the correct size to be used for the safety zone maps required in an Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan. There will be a DVD training tool created.

19 Next Generation in California Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
Already here … ASDE-X at LAX, SAN, & SNA. Numerous LPV & RNAV instrument approach procedures; plus growing number of RNP IAPs, including BUR, LAX, LGB, MRY, PSP, SFO, SJC. And on the way … ADS-B lead contractor, ITT, deploying ground infrastructure. Twenty-three sites to be installed in CA, completion by end of 2010. Caltrans Aeronautics supports NextGen: working with ITT to facilitate ADS-B installation; oversaw LPV survey contract; ready to help the FAA fully bring NextGen to California. A fundamental restructuring of the way air traffic is managed. Makes the following critical transitions: From ground-based to satellite-based navigation and surveillance From voice communication to digital data exchange From fragmented weather depiction and forecasting to a system that uses a single, authoritative source From constrained system capacity to enhanced, sustainable, safe traffic flow that is not impacted by adverse weather or difficult terrain Enhances safety, capacity & efficiency – and has positive environmental benefits The centerpiece of the system is Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B); digital electronic equipment that provides precise situational awareness for pilots and air traffic controllers Acronyms: Airport Surface Detection Equipment, Model X (ASDE-X) Continuous Descent Approaches (CDA’s) Lateral Precision with Vertical Guidance (LPV) Area Navigation (RNAV) Required Navigation Performance (RNP) Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

Noise Issues Due to economic recession, aircraft noise contours have shrunk. Many airports, though, now report a leveling out of operations. We can expect contours to bring some growing as the economy picks up. We must remain mindful that as the economy rebounds, so will aircraft noise. Local planners must resist any temptation to allow new noise sensitive land uses to build up to these temporarily reduced aircraft noise contours. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

21 2010-2019 Capital Improvement Plan Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) Currently developing statewide 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. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

22 Proposed School Site Evaluations
Airport Safety Zones Map This is an example of a general safety zone map depicting the safety zones around a runway. This map is based on the California Airport Land Use Planning Handbook. It is used for Land Use Compatibility and School Site Evaluations around airports. Coordinated planning efforts will enable the community and airport to coexist safely.
