Federal Aviation Administration Fiscal Year 2010 Business Plan: Airports

As an organization, the Office of Airports (ARP) provides leadership to the aviation and airport industries in planning and developing a safe and efficient national airport system to satisfy the needs of U.S. aviation interests, with due consideration for economics, environmental compatibility, local proprietary rights, and safeguarding the public investment. We do this by providing grants to airports to assist in development of airports, regulating and inspecting commercial service airports under Part 139 of the Federal Aviation Regulations, developing engineering standards for airport design, lighting and marking, aircraft rescue and firefighting, wildlife hazard mitigation, and pavement design and construction. We are focused on improving runway safety and have key initiatives underway for improving runway safety areas to the extent practicable and for reducing runway incursions by improving airport lighting and marking. In addition we conduct a research and development program to develop new engineering specifications and guidance, and provide international leadership at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) on airport issues.
