New FAA guidance on airport pavement strength
ACC
The Federal Aviation Administration recently published Advisory Circular 150/5335-5C – Standardized Method of Reporting Airport Pavement Strength – PCN. Among other things, this AC provides guidance for using the standardized International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) method, called the Aircraft Classification Number – Pavement Classification Number (ACN-PCN) method, to report airport runway, taxiway, and apron pavement strength. Includes instructions for using the COMFAA program to calculate ACN values to determine PCN.

FAA publishes notice regarding CATEX 2
ACC
On August 19, 2014, the Federal Aviation Administration published a notice in the Federal Register concerning the long expected Implementation of Categorical Exclusions for Environmental Review of Performance Based Navigation Procedures, commonly being called CATEX 2. This is in response to Section 213(c)(2) of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 which directed the FAA to issue and file a categorical exclusion for any navigation performance or other performance based navigation (PBN) procedure that would result in measureable reductions in fuel consumption, carbon dioxide emissions, and noise on a per flight basis as compared to aircraft operations that follow existing instrument flight rule procedures in the same airspace.
