Appendix D AIRPORT LAYOUT PLAN DRAWINGS

Airport Master Plan Update Dallas Executive Airport

As part of this Master Plan, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and Texas Department of Transportation Aviation Division (TxDOT) require the development of several computer drawings detailing specific parts of the airport and its environs. These drawings were created on a computer-aided drafting (CAD) system and serve as the official depiction of the current and planned condition of the airport. These drawings will be delivered to TxDOT for their review. TxDOT will critique the drawings from a technical perspective to be sure all applicable federal regulations are met. TxDOT will use the CAD drawings as the basis for justification for funding decisions. It should be noted that FAA and TxDOT require that any changes to the airfield (i.e., runway and taxiway system, navigational aids, etc.) be presented on the drawings. The landside configuration developed during the master planning process is also depicted on the drawings, but TxDOT recognizes that landside development is much more fluid and dependent upon developer needs. Thus, an updated drawing set is typically not necessary for future landside development. The following is a description of the CAD drawings that make up the Airport Layout Plan (ALP) drawing set included with this Master Plan.

AIRPORT LAYOUT DRAWING


An Airport Layout Drawing (ALD) graphically presents the existing and ultimate airport layout. The ALD includes such elements as the physical airport features, wind data tabulation, location of airfield facilities, and existing general aviation development. Also presented on the ALD are the runway safety areas, airport property boundary, and revenue support areas.

The computerized plan provides detailed information on existing and future facility layouts on multiple layers that permit the user to focus on any section of the airport at a desirable scale. The plan can be used as base information for design and can be easily updated in the future to reflect new development and more detail concerning existing conditions as made available through design surveys.

INNER PORTION OF THE APPROACH SURFACE DRAWINGS

The Inner Portion of the Approach Surface Drawings contain the plan and profile view of the inner portion of the approach surface to the runway and a tabular listing of all surface violations. The drawings also contain other approach surfaces, such as the threshold siting surface. Detailed obstruction and facility data is provided to identify planned improvements and the disposition of the obstructions. A drawing of each runway end is provided.

TERMINAL AREA PLAN

The Terminal Area Plan is a larger scale plan view drawing of existing and planned aprons, buildings, hangars, parking lots, and other landside facilities focused on airport terminal area development.

LAND USE PLAN

The Land Use Plan is a depiction of the land use recommendations on airport property. The objective of this drawing is to coordinate uses of the airport property in a manner compatible with the functional design of the airport facility. When development is proposed, it should be directed to the appropriate land use area depicted on this plan.

AIRSPACE MAP

Title 14 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 77, Objects Affecting Navigable Airspace, was established for use by local authorities to control the height of objects near airports. The Airspace Drawing is a graphic depiction of this regulatory criterion including D-2

the primary, approach, transitional, horizontal, and conical surfaces, all of which make up the 14 CFR Part 77 imaginary surfaces. The Airspace Drawing can be a critical tool for the airport sponsors use in reviewing proposed development in the vicinity of the airport. DRAFT ALP DISCLAIMER The ALP drawing set has been developed in accordance with accepted FAA and TxDOT standards. The ALP has not been approved by TxDOT and is subject to further airspace review. Land use and other changes may result. The airport sponsor and TxDOT have access to the most recently approved ALP.
