18 Federal Aviation Administration FAA Update Vehicle Pedestrian Deviations In FY11, there were 44 Vehicle/Pedestrian Deviation related Runway Incursions (VPD-RIs) in AWP. This is by far the highest number of all Regions. To date in FY12, there have been 18 VPD Runway Incursions in AWP. –By this time last year, AWP had experienced 22 so we are doing better, but… –We need your vigilance as we move into spring and summer which are our peak times for V/PD RIs. Nevada Airports are doing well. –NV Airports had 4 VPD-Ris in FY11. –There have been 3 VPD-RI this fiscal year to date at Nevada Airports. –2 at LAS and 1 at VGT.

We strongly recommend all Part 139 certificated airports and busy GA Airports conduct a Wildlife Hazard Assessment and develop a Wildlife Hazard Management Plan even if they have not experienced a “triggering event.” All wildlife strikes should be reported to FAA at http://wildlife.faa.gov.http://wildlife.faa.gov
20 Federal Aviation Administration FAA Update Runway Safety Area Program All practicable improvements to RSAs at Part 139 airports, including NavAids related actions, must be completed by December 30, 2015. GOOD NEWS: Based on the information we have, all Part 139 Certificated Runways in Nevada meet current RSA Standards. Not So Good News: We have 30 RSA projects to be completed by the deadline. –AWP program is faced with timing & funding challenges in meeting the 2015 deadline. –Our ACIP, includes over $400 million in AIP funding for RSA projects. This means that other, lower priority, projects must be deferred.
21 Federal Aviation Administration FAA Update Safety Management System (SMS) Airports implementation of SMS is limited to Large Hub Airport projects only until further notice. FAA-Air Traffic Organization (ATO) implementation of SMS may include any project with potential to impact operation of the National Airspace System.

San Francisco (SFO) Runway 10L-28R and 10R-28L Runway Safety Areas. Los Angeles (LAX) Construct two aprons at Bradley Terminal and Taxiway “T”. Phoenix (PHX) Rehab Taxiway “B8”. Other SRMPs may be initiated by FAA-ATO.
