Central Region Airports Division 10/1/10AIP Sponsor Guide - 500500 - Airport PlanningGeneralAirport planning is a systematic process used to establish guidelines for theefficient development of airports that is consistent with local, state and national goals. A key objectiveof airport planning is toassure the effective use of airport resources in order to satisfy aviationdemand in a financially feasiblemanner. Airport planning may be as broad based as the national system planor more centrally focusedas an airport master plan for a specific airport. The primary types of airportplanning may basically beclassified as follows:National System Planning (NPIAS)
State Airport System Planning (SASP)
Metropolitan Airport System Planning
Airport Master Planning
 Master PlanFor an individual airport, owners more closely identify with the airport master plan for their airport. Anairport master plan represents the airport’s blueprint for long-termdevelopment. A few of the goals of amaster plan are:To provide a graphic representation of existing airport features, future
 airport development andanticipated land use.To establish a realistic schedule for implementation of the proposed
 developmentTo identify an realistic financial plan to support the development
To validate the plan technically and procedurally through investigation of 
 concepts andalternatives on technical, economic and environmental grounds.To prepare and present a plan to the public that adequately addresses all
 relevant issues andsatisfies local, state and federal regulations.To establish a framework for a continuous planning process.
 Limitations of FAA ActionsSponsors must not construe the acceptance of an airport master plan by theFAA as an approval of theentire master plan document. The FAA only approves components of amaster plan, not the entiredocument. The key elements that the FAA reviews and formally approves are:Forecasts
Selection of critical aircraft
Airport layout plan (ALP)
 It is from these elements that the FAA makes a determination regardingeligibility of AIP funding for proposed development. It is critical that airport owners and their consultantcoordinate early and oftenwith the appropriate FAA planner to identify significant planning issues and todetermine the type andmagnitude of effort required to address such issues.RESOURCESAdvisory CircularsPlanning Advisory Circulars

500-1 10/1/10 Central Region Airports DivisionAIP Sponsor Guide -500510 - National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS)GeneralBefore the FAA can consider an airport eligible to receive Federal funds, theairport must beincluded in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS). TheNPIAS is a FederalAviation Administration (FAA) document that provides short (1-5 year) andlong (6-10 year) costestimates of AIP eligible projects associated with establishing a system of airports adequate tomeet the needs of the National Airspace System (NAS). Section 47103 of Title 49 United StatesCode (USC) establishes the FAA requirement to maintain the NPIAS.The NPIAS provides an inventory of airport development for the FAA’s AirportCapitalImprovement Plan (ACIP). The FAA formulates the ACIP based on the airportdevelopmentneeds identified by the NPIAS. The ACIP is essentially a subset of theNPIAS, highlightingairport needs over a 3-year funding cycle.FAA PolicyFAA Order 5090.3C, Field Formulation of the National Plan of IntegratedAirport Systems(NPIAS) establishes the criteria for inclusion into the NPIAS. The NPIASincludes airportdevelopment recommended in FAA accepted airport master and system plansor shown on FAAapproved airport layout plans. It may also include airport developmentidentified from FAA airport
site visits and contained in airport owners’ capital improvement programs.Key FactorsThe FAA bases an airport’s inclusion in the NPIAS on information provided bya potential airportsponsor. The FAA will evaluate an airport’s inclusion into the NPIAS basedupon:Whether an airport is considered a public-use airport.
The number of enplanements the airport has or is forecast to have.
The number of based aircraft located at the airport.
Whether an airport receives U.S. Mail service.
Whether there is a component of the U.S. Military, Reserves or National
 Guardpermanently based on or adjacent to the airport.Special justification that would consider the isolation of the community
 being served,whether the airport serves the need of an Indian tribe, supports recreationareas, or isneeded to develop or protect important national resources.LimitationsThe listing of any location, airport or item of development in the NPIAS doesnot in any waylegally obligate or commit the Federal government to provide funds for specific development. Italso does not imply environmental approval of the proposed development.RESOURCESFAA Orders5090.3C, Field Formulation of the National Plan of Integrated Airport

500-2 Central Region Airports Division 10/1/10AIP Sponsor Guide - 500520 - Airport Layout PlansOverviewThe Airport Layout Plan (ALP) serves as a critical planning tool that depictsboth existing facilitiesand planned development for an airport. Sponsors of airport developmentcarried out at federallyobligated airports must accomplish the improvement in accordance with anFAA-approved ALP.By definition, the ALP is a plan for an airport that shows:Boundaries and proposed additions to all areas owned or controlled by the
 sponsor for airport purposes
