The Airport Sufficiency Rating System provides a tool to prepare short (1-5 years) and intermediate range construction improvement programs and insure maximum benefits from expenditures of Federal, State and Local funds. It determines a numerical rating for each airport by comparing critical structural, safety and service features to specified design standards. All airports included in the proposed State Airport System Plan, except 13 designated as new, are rated for their sufficiency. Eight of these new airports are proposed to serve those communities which are not suitably provided with airport services, and the remaining 5 are proposed relievers for 3 of the carrier airports. The rating is determined by comparing structural conditions and design features of the existing facilities to design standards. The rating items fall into 2 categories: airfield and runway.
