FAA off to a quick start in issuing AIP grants
ACC
The FAA Office of Airports (ARP) has informed ACC that it has started to issue FY 2015 Airport Improvement Program (AIP) grants to airport sponsors. The approval of project grants is taking place much earlier in the fiscal year than had been occurring in the past, and it has been a priority for FAA Associate Administrator for Airports Eddie Angeles. ACC President T.J. Schulz discussed the need for FAA to approve grants more expeditiously in a meeting with Angeles earlier this year, and Angeles addressed the topic at the February ACC/AAAE Airport Planning, Design and Construction Symposium in Denver, where he said that the FAA would begin approving grants in the Spring of 2015. “ACC applauds the efforts of Eddie Angeles and the FAA Office of Airports in getting grants out the door to airports quicker this year,” said Schulz. “This will provide airports the ability to get projects underway earlier in the construction season.”

The FAA continues to adapt their UAS policies
ACC
On February 23, the FAA published a long awaited Notice of Proposed Rulemaking that would address the use of small UAS, or Unmanned Aerial Systems. That draft rule is open for comments through April 24. In the meantime, the FAA has adopted an interim policy that allows the approval of UAS in the National Airspace System. Although the process for approval can take time, it has been reported that applications are being submitted and UAS users are being approved. On March 24, the FAA loosened that policy, slightly, for operators under a Section 333 exemption. All in all, the FAA is continuing to adapt to the overwhelming use of UAS but is taking a focused approach. For more information, please check out the FAA’s UAS Webpage. If you are interested in submitting comments to ACC, please submit them to Matt Griffin by Wednesday, April 15, 2015.
