Modification of Standards
Airport Standards: A Tiered Model
Highest Level
Maintains airport utility Provides long term economic investment Flexible: Accommodates changing demand

Lowest Level
Provides essential safety requirements Applies restrictions: when, how, who Not flexible: May only be valid for one point in time

Engineering Brief #75 Key Points


Limit aircraft crossing active runways

Crossing taxiway within the last third of the runway Maintain standard signage, marking, and lighting configurations Use right-angle taxiway/ runway intersections (except high speed exits) Avoid wide expanses of pavement at runway entry Limit the number of taxiways intersecting at one point Avoid direct access from terminal ramps to runway High speed exit taxiways should not lead directly a runway crossing

Airplane Design Groups


Fewer than today
12 categories today versus 9 proposed Improves safety Provides for economical long term investment May increase near term costs May require more Modification of Standards

Drivers for change


Regional, business, and micro jets Technology trends

TERPS and Other Standards


Not Airport Standards
Developed to implement specific requirements Related to, but not the same as airport standards

Part 77
Minimize discussion in new AC Notification, analysis, and airspace protection of off-airport proposals May affect airport clearance standards- eligibility

TERPS
Safety of flight standards only Must be accommodated by Airport Standards Airport standards need (must have) agreement from Flight Standards
