ATLANTA’S INTERNATIO

In about a year, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta’s international terminal will be ready for business. And, as you’d likely guess, there is much to do before the $1.4 billion gateway opens its doors to the world.

ATLANTA

ONAL TERMINAL

MOVING FORWARD ON MANY FRONTS Construction of the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal and its 12-gate concourse is more than 70 percent complete. The building is sealed in, electricity is running throughout, and the place is buzzing with activity. In 2010, crews logged more than 2.8 million hours of labor. As the scheduled opening draws near, the pace on the job site is quickening to ensure that several key elements of the project will be finished. As managers, contractors, trade workers and others focus on construction, another team of airport employees is working to guarantee a smooth operational transition to the 1.2 million-squarefoot facility.

CONSTRUCTION UPDATE The international terminal, its new concourse and the existing international concourse (Concourse E) will create a 40-gate international air travel gateway for Atlanta. It will serve the more than 13 million international passengers who will pass through Hartsfield-Jackson each year by 2015, according to FAA estimates. Construction began in summer 2008. The exterior skin of the building was completed last fall, and much of the facility’s heating and cooling systems are in place, as is most of the baggage handling equipment. According to Aviation General Manager Louis Miller, more than 300 subcontractors are qualified to participate in the project, and more than 1,000 workers are on the site daily. “The work is moving forward at a very fast pace,” Miller said. “I’m impressed with the overall approach of our construction partners — Holder, Manhattan, Moody and Hunt — and I’m pleased that the project is tracking on budget and ahead of schedule.” Crews inside the building are working to complete mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems and to install floors and ceilings in several areas, including the Federal Inspection Station, the 8

departures level and the arrivals level. The automated people mover (APM) extension also is moving forward at the international terminal. The maintenance and storage facility is finished, and technicians are installing the automated train control system and other components. Ten new APM vehicles are being tested and integrated into the system. There has been progress as well on the eight security checkpoint lanes for international departing passengers and five recheck lanes for domestic connecting passengers. When the facility opens with these security checkpoint lanes, Atlantabound international passengers no longer will need to go through the necessary, but unpopular, baggage recheck process. Outside the building, construction continues on an elevated roadway that will serve the international terminal, as well as two parking structures and a commercial vehicle lot. International passengers will have access to more than 3,500 parking spaces. Two 700,000-plus-square-foot aircraft movement ramps are taking shape. Ramp 9, on the east side of what is known as Concourse F, is paved and nearly complete. The area for Ramp 8 on the west side of Concourse F is prepared and ready for paving. Beneath what will be Ramp 8 is the APM exten-


sion tunnel that connects the international terminal and Concourse F to the rest of Hartsfield-Jackson. About 950 feet long, the APM tunnel extension was finished in late 2010.

LOOK AND FEEL From the outside, the international terminal appears nearly complete. The sweeping roof line, gentle metallic curves and glass façade are ready to greet passengers next year. More than 100,000 square feet of glass paneling and 215,000 square feet of exterior metal panels make up the building’s shell. While the building’s exterior has simple elegance and provides a glimpse of what is inside, the real focus on architectural design is inside the facility. “The international terminal is designed from the inside out,” Miller said. “We wanted to put most of the

architecture inside the building to create the ultimate experience for our passengers.” Key design elements include high ceilings, open spaces and soaring windows that provide clear views of the aircraft apron on one side and the Atlanta skyline on the other. “Passengers will find the new international terminal very open, bright and inviting,” Miller said.

ACTIVATION TEAM Several challenges must be overcome before passengers can experience the new international terminal, Miller said. “Construction is only part of the equation here. We have to really hit the mark on a smooth and successful operational opening,” he said. Hartsfield-Jackson leaders have been planning and preparing for the facility’s opening for more than a year. In February 2010, a core team was established to manage the activation process and ensure a seamless operational transition. Leading the eight-member activation team is Balram Bheodari, Hartsfield-Jackson assistant general manager for operations, maintenance and security.

Hartsfield-Jackson leaders have been planning and preparing for the facility’s opening for more than a year. In February 2010, a core team was established to manage the activation process and ensure a seamless operational transition. According to Bheodari, more than 20 stakeholder groups have direct roles in the activation of the international terminal. They include federal and state agencies, local governments, airlines, airport tenants and construction managers. The team identified more than 1,700 tasks that must be completed to ensure a smooth opening in spring 2012. “All stakeholder groups and end users need to be prepared for opening day and beyond,” Bheodari said. “The activation team’s responsibility is to ensure that no one is working in a silo as we approach the opening of the international terminal.” Hartsfield-Jackson’s activation team oversees the ultimate to-do list and has a clear vision of all the moving parts, which include developing standard 10

operating procedures (SOPs), updating and integrating existing SOPs, creating effective training programs and coordinating public awareness. “We cannot be subject matter experts on everything,” Bheodari said. “Our job is to coordinate among the stakeholders to identify and eliminate any potential issues related to opening day.” The activation team has established working groups that meet regularly to focus on five functional areas: training, terminal, airside, baggage and public awareness. Each group is developing operational procedures related to its focus. “Once they are complete, we’ll conduct trials and simulations to validate the new and updated SOPs,” said Robert Seewald, senior project manager for Parsons and a key member of the activation team. “As we train, we’ll update and refine the SOPs until they are accurate and ready to support operations.” Thousands of people — airline personnel, concessionaires, emergency service workers, custodial crews and others — will rely on these SOPs daily as they operate and maintain the Maynard H. Jackson Jr. International Terminal when it debuts next spring. A

1. H  ow do you handle the budgeting process when winter isn’t over, and the money budgeted for snow removal is gone? BUFFALO NIAGARA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: Having good records is very important. When putting together the budget for snow removal at the airport, the planning team uses statistical data that records snowfall from the last 100 years. Using the data, we convert the inches to hours of labor and multiply the labor hours by the contract rates for equipment and for labor. Using regression analysis and the last 15 years worth of expenses, we can forecast materials, fuels and spare parts. We have found that this systematic process has worked well, so that even large fluctuations in snow amounts can be absorbed into the operating budget, and the net difference is reflective in next year’s rates and charges. However, there are the occasional times when the weather event in Buffalo

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

is so large that it becomes a national news story. In those years, the event was such a catastrophic storm that it qualified for additional assistance, normally in the form of federal disaster aid. Again, recordkeeping became very important, because only clearly specified work was eligible for disaster aid.

DETROIT METRO: The Wayne County Airport Authority (WCAA) develops its annual snow budget based on snow expense averages over a five-year period. The fiveyear average is entered into a cost/inch formula to determine the final budgeted amount.  WCAA performs mid-year budget reviews to determine whether the snow removal budget needs to be amended. During this time, we develop projected forecasts that help to indicate what we may spend for the remainder of the snow season. In the event that additional monies are needed for snow removal, we will make adjustments and/or reductions to other areas of our budget.


OPS:

GREATER ROCHESTER (N.Y.) INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: GRIA uses four-five years of snow removal historical data to prepare our budgets for the snow removal season. Costs that will fluctuate from year to year depending on the severity of winter weather include labor, chemicals such as potassium acetate, and our snow plow contractor cost for ramp snow removal. If winter snow removal operations go over the amount budgeted, we adjust our operational budget through costcutting of other non-essential expenditures.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN (COLO.) METROPOLITAN AIRPORT: Generally, we have some breathing room in our snow removal budget and are able to absorb unexpected expenses. Ceasing or diminishing our snow removal services is out of the question. If necessary, we would cut back on other airportprovided services in order to get through the snow season.

TETERBORO (N.J.) AIRPORT (OPERATED BY THE PORT AUTHORITY OF NEW YORK & NEW JERSEY) If our expenditures for snow removal are over budget early in the year, we attempt to find other areas in the budget that we can cut back on during the rest of the year and thus come out on budget. One thing we don’t do is cut back on snow removal and compromise safety. We spend what it takes to operate a safe airport.

2. A  re you using any new snow removal products to good effect? BUFFALO NIAGARA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: This year we added two new runway brooms to the fleet. When looking at the whole fleet of runway brooms, plows, blowers, loaders, dump trucks and spreaders, we replace about 6 percent of the fleet each year. This equates to a useful life expectancy of about 15 years for each piece of equipment. Some AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

equipment, of course, lasts longer, but rarely do we replace anything sooner.

DETROIT METRO: We are not really using any new products at this time. Our basic snow removal products consist of a potassium acetate-based runway deicer (liquid), sodium acetate-based runway deicer (solid) and dried/ heated sand.

GREATER ROCHESTER (N.Y.) INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: GRIA snow removal management has set in place a standard operating procedure of using only the liquid deicing chemicals such as potassium acetate in freezing rain situations. This has reduced costs and has allowed us to more cost efficiently remove snow with snow removal equipment and manpower.

ROCKY MOUNTAIN (COLO.) METROPOLITAN AIRPORT: Recently, the airport has been very successful with our use of deice/anti-ice materials. Over this past winter we have tried two separate products: NACC and NAAF. The products were spread on runway and taxiway surfaces and on high-speed runway exits. Both materials were used when brooming the surfaces no longer worked to remove ice formation. Although the airport hasn’t done a lot of experimentation, the NAAF seems to work better than the NACC. We used the dry pellet form of both

deicers, mixed with e36 Pre-Wet to help accelerate the deice process. These products are very expensive; however, they have been necessary to ensure that the airport stays open and safe during inclement weather.

TETERBORO (N.J.) AIRPORT:

A Detroit Metro employee is dwarfed by snow pushed off the roof of the Blue Deck.

We are not using any new snow removal products.

3. A  re you using any new equipment, or adapting equipment normally used for another purpose, in your snow operations? BUFFALO NIAGARA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: No, we normally don’t adapt our equipment. The industry is pretty competitive and, as such, is innovative in equipment design and purpose. Oftentimes, a better result is to interact with

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

15


design teams from the industry, rather than significantly modify our own equipment.

DETROIT METRO: Yes, WCAA has added two new sand trucks to our snow removal fleet that have the capabilities of spraying runway deicer at the same time that sand is being dispensed. WCAA also has converted two Oshkosh plows into multi-function snow removal equipment by adding two M-B tow-behind brooms to the plows. Both additions have helped to increase friction readings on runways and taxiway turn-offs during actual snow removal events. With this new equipment, we also have seen a slight decrease in sand usage. In addition, DTW employs a snow operations center, commonly referred to here as the snow desk, which coordinates communication among airfield operations, airport maintenance, FAA Air Traffic Control, the airlines and the FBOs. In addition, WCAA sends an airfield operations senior manager to Delta’s ramp control tower so that any issues that pop up for our hub carrier, which controls aircraft movements on the McNamara Terminal ramp, can be communicated and addressed efficiently. If necessary, a manager can be dispatched to the North Terminal ramp control tower as well, to coordinate with the airlines there. 16

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

At DTW, the snow desk and snow removal operations are triggered based on the following depth criteria: • One-quarter inch of slush • One-half inch of wet snow • 1 inch of dry snow • Or, if the pavement is covered by ice or freezing rain. Both Detroit Metro and Willow Run airports have encountered above-average snowfall this season, including a 9-inch storm and a 10.1-inch storm that both occurred in February. Both storms had periods of sleet and freezing rain. Despite that, WCAA crews kept both airports operating, and, in fact, there was never a point during either storm when the authority did not provide more pavement than was being required by the airlines and FAA. We always maintained required airfield capacity. In the interest of continually improving WCAA’s Snow and Ice Control Plan (SICP), a debriefing meeting is held after each significant event that is regularly attended by the key WCAA divisions, FAA, the airlines and the FBOs. DTW’s SICP is updated every year.

GREATER ROCHESTER (N.Y.) INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT: Instead of buying airport-dedicated snow plows, GRIA has purchased dump trucks with plow attachments so that the dump trucks can be used year-round on the field for other seasonal operations. This has proven cost effective and allowed for multimodal use of the loaders and trucks. In addition, GRIA has implemented a

ROCKY MOUNTAIN (COLO.) METROPOLITAN AIRPORT: We recently have acquired a tow-behind broom that mounts onto the back of one of our plow trucks. Additionally, we have another tow-behind ordered, which should be delivered this spring. The tow-behinds allow airport staff to broom airfield surfaces at a higher speed, allowing personnel to get on and off the runway faster and lessening our exposure on the runway. The ultimate goal of the airport is to convert our brooming equipment to only plow-mounted, towbehind brooms. This should greatly improve our efficiency and speed of snow removal operations. The airport also recently purchased two Gjerstad plow blades. The Gjerstads have been mounted on loaders and have been monumental in improving the efficiency of our snow removal operations. We estimate that the two blades have improved snow cleanup time by at least 30 percent. All these new additions have allowed the airport to continue to operate at the same level, but with less manpower.

CHICAGO AVIATION DEPARTMENT BATTLES BLIZZARD AT O’HARE INTERNATIONAL On Feb. 1-2, 2011, O’Hare was hit with more than 20 inches of snow from the third snowiest blizzard in Chicago’s history. In less than 24 hours following the historic storm, the CDA had cleared and opened six of the airport’s seven runways. PHOTO CREDIT: CDA/cc 18

S

now removal at Chicago O’Hare International, one of the world’s largest and busiest airports, is no small feat. In fact, no other airport in the world operates under the demand of more than 2,400 daily operations in an environment that records an average of 37.9 inches of snowfall each year. Effective snow management is a critical component of safe and efficient airport management. O’Hare is at the center of the national aviation system, and, as such, its ability to operate efficiently during inclement weather impacts air travel across the country. As the operator of O’Hare and Midway International airports, the Chicago Department of Aviation (CDA) is responsible for managing snow operations at both airports. The CDA has a lot of ground to cover at O’Hare, with nearly 13 miles of runways, 52 miles of taxiways, and 20 million

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

square feet of hold pads, hard stands and ramp areas. Even during the most severe winter storms, O’Hare and Midway continue to operate efficiently, providing clear and safe runways for aircraft to land and take off. Last year, the CDA Operations Division at O’Hare received top honors from the Northeast ChapterAAAE as the co-winner of the Balchen/Post Award for excellence in the performance of airport snow and ice removal. O’Hare also won the award in 1978, 1988, 1989 and 1999. Earlier this year, the CDA’s Operations Division was challenged with the third snowiest blizzard in Chicago’s history when O’Hare was hit with more than 20 inches of snow on Feb. 1-2. Dubbed the “2011 blizzard” by local media, the snowstorm kicked off the city’s snowiest February (29 inches total) in recorded history. Remarkably, O’Hare maintained one open runway throughout most of the blizzard, and in less than 24 hours following the storm, the CDA had cleared and opened


six of the airport’s seven runways. This allowed the airport to operate a runway configuration that could support O’Hare’s maximum arrival rate of 112 arrivals per hour. It was an incredibly quick recovery that provided the opportunity for airlines to run full schedules and work toward resuming normal operations just one day after the historic storm ended. This impressive feat was the result of a number of factors, including the hard work and dedication of the men and women of the airport’s operations, vehicle services and facilities staffs. About 500 workers at O’Hare, including motor truck drivers, airport operations employees and facility maintenance personnel, worked in shifts to provide round-the-clock snow removal. These snow removal teams plan, train and prepare for months in advance of the snow season. When a major snow event occurs, they work continuously, using a combination of plowing, brooming, blowing and

deicing methods to keep the runways clear. In addition to highly skilled and experienced personnel, the CDA’s efforts during winter storms include close coordination with FAA and the airlines. During major snow events, the CDA stations two senior airport operations supervisors in the central air traffic control tower to coordinate directly with FAA. This practice, which has become an instrumental part of O’Hare’s outstanding record of safety and efficiency in winter conditions, was first implemented 20 years ago at the airport and since has been replicated at many major hubs in the country. The CDA uses an arsenal of snow-fighting equipment and materials. For the 2011 blizzard clean-up alone, the CDA used more than 280,000 gallons of deicer, 1,380 tons of salt and as many as 10 snowmelters strategically located around the airfield to remove snow. The snowmelters prevent snow drifts on the airfield and save time on haul-

ing snow. A single machine can melt 500 tons of snow an hour — the equivalent of 50 large dump trucks. As one can imagine, budgeting for winter operations at a major airport is a challenging task. As the CDA prepares its operating budget for O’Hare, the CDA snow department must consider the cost of materials, percrews clean sonnel, equipment maintenance, contracted services up ramp and many other factors to effectively manage snow areas at O’Hare on removal based on historical snowfall and materials Feb. 3, 2011, use averages. Over the last three winters, the CDA following the third snowiest has used an average of 1.6 million gallons of deicer, blizzard in 13,000 tons of salt and nearly 400 tons of sand. The Chicago’s airport must be ready and able to respond to snow history. events throughout the season. While the cost may PHOTO surprise some — approximately $20 million just for CREDIT: CDA/ materials and contract services (this figure does not cc include personnel, equipment and maintenance) for one winter season — it is a critical aspect of the airport’s operating budget. The costs of flight delays, cancellations or risks to safety due to an airport’s inability to operate during or recover quickly from a winter storm far outweigh the cost to manage snow removal effectively. As an experienced, proven industry leader for airport snow removal, the CDA constantly is exploring and testing new materials, methods and equipment to further enhance its winter operations. The department’s fleet includes nearly 200 pieces of snow removal equipment, ranging from front-mounted brooms and blowers to deicer trucks and plows. Many of these vehicles have been built to specifications requested by the CDA, including a high-speed, multipurpose snow removal vehicle equipped with a plow, broom and air blower. The CDA began testing this “3-in-1” vehicle, known as a snow mauler, at O’Hare during the 2009-2010 snow season in an effort to enhance existing high-speed snow removal efforts to clear runways quicker and more efficiently. This equipment will be needed as the airport continues to add future runways under the O’Hare Modernization Program. The mauler measures nearly 70 feet in length and can push, broom and blow snow while traveling at speeds of 35 mph. The vehicle blows snow 20

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

at a velocity of 300 mph and its 20-foot broom has a rotation speed of 720 rpm. The mauler performed so well during testing that the CDA added16 maulers to its fleet for the 2010-2011 season. During snow events, the mauler, as well as the other equipment in the fleet (including Vammas and M-B tow-behind equipment), are divided into teams, with each team capable of rapidly clearing snow. In fact, each team can clear the full length of a 10,000-foot runway in 15 minutes. In addition to this new equipment, the CDA is now testing a new, high-speed runway snow blower at O’Hare to keep pace with the other fastmoving 3-in-1 teams. The state-of-the-art equipment is larger and more capable than any other snow blower in O’Hare’s fleet. The CDA created demanding performance specifications for the vehicle, resulting in a piece of equipment that can blow up to 7,500 tons of snow per hour. Building upon the CDA’s airport-wide sustainability initiatives, the department is constantly conducting research and development to procure the newest technology and equipment that incorporates greater efficiency and reduced emissions and fuel use into snow removal operations. The CDA currently is testing equipment with enhanced particulate filters to make cleaner exhaust, and engine block heaters and auxiliary power units to limit engine idling and emissions. Additionally, the department specifies equipment that helps reduce emissions and fuel consumption years ahead of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency mandates. This past winter, O’Hare experimented with spreading a beet juice and salt brine mixture as a substitute for salt in airport customer parking lots. If the trial produces positive results, the mixture greatly could reduce the amount of salt used for future snow events. Under the leadership of Aviation Commissioner Rosemarie Andolino, the CDA looks forward to maintaining its reputation for excellence and remaining at the forefront of new technologies, products and best practices for snow operations at both O’Hare and Midway International airports. “The men and women of our operations division realize the serious nature of their work, and they take pride in keeping the airport safe and operating,” said Andolino. “As an industry leader for snow operations, we continue to share our expertise and information with other airports, large and small, across the nation and around the world.” A Khaled Naja is chief operating officer of the Chicago Department of Aviation.

Air Cargo Offers Airports an Alternate Revenue Source By David Whitaker 22

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011


AIR CARGO

enues such as terminal rents, auto parking and concession income. In some cases, revenue generated from air cargo operations is a primary funding source for airports, while at others cargo revenues are a small component of total revenues.

INVESTMENT COSTS Cargo revenues for airports typically come in the form of land and building leases, as well as landing and fuel flowage fees. Some airports perform ground handling services for cargo airlines to generate additional revenue. On the cost side, airports may need to invest in specialized business development staff — internal and/or third party — and appropriate infrastructure, including cargo facilities and ramp and fuel storage capacity. For those airports that ground handle, investment in relevant staff and specialized ground equipment is necessary. Airports carefully weigh the cost of these investments against potential future revenue streams to achieve a positive return. Many airports, however, find the necessary infrastructure already in place to accommodate passenger or military operations and seek incremental revenue gains from air cargo activities with modest or no additional investments required. Another revenue opportunity related to cargo is off-airport development. Some airports own or control land not needed for aeronautical purposes and find demand for distribution and manufacturing facilities, among other potential uses. Some sell the land for one-time profit, while others maintain ownership for a longer-term revenue stream. While this activity is not necessarily related to air cargo, it typically involves cargo of some sort, given the compatibility of distribution and warehousing activity with airports.

LEARNING LOGISTICS

G

iven the recent difficult economic conditions in the aviation sector, airports are seeking alternate sources of revenue. The drop in passenger and landed weight levels has impacted airport revenues, and passenger airlines have made it clear that they alone cannot bridge the revenue shortfall. Airports increasingly are considering the prospect of generating income from air cargo operations as they seek to diversify their revenue streams to be less reliant on more traditional rev-

There are several types of air cargo carriers: • Passenger carriers that focus on cargo exclusively in their belly holds, such as Delta, United and American; • Carriers with a mixed fleet of passenger aircraft (with corresponding belly space) and all-freighter aircraft such as Korean, Lufthansa and Cathay Pacific; • Carriers with an all-freighter fleet, such as Kalitta, Evergreen and Nippon Cargo Airlines; • Integrated carriers, such as FedEx, UPS and Purolator; and AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

FAA’s Air Cargo Forecast For Fiscal Years 2011-2031 FAA in February issued its annual aviation forecast update, which included projections for air cargo activity through 2031. The following cargo excerpts are from the forecast document. The entire forecast may be viewed at http://www.faa.gov/ about/office_org/headquarters_offices/apl/aviation_forecasts/ aerospace_forecasts/2011-2031/media/2011%20Forecast%20 Doc.pdf. •

Historically, air cargo activity tracks with gross domestic product (GDP). Additional factors that affect air cargo growth are fuel price volatility, movement of real yields and globalization. Significant structural changes have occurred in the air cargo industry. Among these changes are air cargo security regulations by FAA and TSA; maturationof the domestic express market; shift from air to other modes (especially truck); use of all-cargo carriers (e.g., FedEx) by the U.S. Postal Service to transport mail; and increased use of mail substitutes (e.g., e-mail).

The forecasts of revenue ton miles (RTMs) are based on several assumptions specific to the cargo industry. First, security restrictions on air cargo transportation will remain in place. Second, most of the shift from air to ground transportation has occurred. Finally, long-term cargo activity will be tied to economic growth.

Total air cargo RTMs (freight/express and mail) will increase from 35.9 billion in 2010 to 93.2 billion in 2031, up an average of 4.6 percent a year; domestic RTMs increase 2.7 percent a year; international RTMs increase 5.4 percent a year.

The cargo fleet increases from 806 aircraft in 2010 to 1,251 aircraft in 2031, an average increase of 2.1 percent a year.

• Indirect air carriers, such as ForwardAir. Airports are developing related competencies to further their air cargo ambitions. Marketing/ air service/business development staffs are learning the nuances of the air cargo industry, which are different than passenger development activities. In-depth study of local and regional commodities that move by air is necessary to compete in this field. Awareness of an airport’s geographic position relative to end users is important, along with awareness of the surface paths and transportation options between the airport and those end users. Airport cargo staff may find themselves learning about rail, ocean, trucking and warehousing activities, given that air cargo is a component of a vast logistics industry.

INDUSTRY SUPPORT Significant resources have been established to support airports’ air cargo ambitions. Airport trade associations have developed air cargo disciplines for their members, while a variety of consultants specialize in supporting airport cargo activities. Several niche real estate developers have had success building on-airport cargo warehouse facilities and assuming the risk of leasing those facilities. Some of these developers have established important tenant relationships and can assist airports — and themselves — with businessdevelopment efforts based on those relationships. Additionally, significant industry is in place to support cargo airlines, from freight forwarders to ground handlers, to trucking companies and warehouse operators, just to name a few. In many cases, the freight forwarder, ground handler and/or warehouse operator establishes the relationship with airports instead of the airline themselves.

Airports that are seeking additional revenue opportunities from air cargo operations should first evaluate the demand for that activity. How is local and regional air cargo moving now, and how can an airport fill a void or exploit an opportunity? If demand exists, what infrastructure investments may be required, and does existing staff have the expertise to develop this line of business? Many airports have cleared these hurdles and are enjoying corresponding revenues, while others have concluded the return on investment does not make sense for them.

Ready, Set, Go: Legal Considerations In Implementing A Safety Management System By Peter Kirsch

F

AA has embarked on an ambitious program to mandate Safety Management Systems (SMS) as part of an international effort to implement SMS throughout the aviation industry. The agency has declared its intent to require SMS for all aviation components that it regulates: airports, air carriers and air traffic. At this writing, FAA has initiated SMS for several of the agency’s lines of business and has proposed rules to require certificated air carriers and certificated airports to adopt SMS of their own. Many of the key regulatory and advisory documents are available at the following website: http://www.faa.gov/airports/airport_safety/safety_ management_systems/. The two directives that would most directly affect airports are Order 5200.11, FAA Airports (ARP) Safety Management System, issued Aug. 30, 2010, and FAA’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to amend FAR Part 139 to require that each holder of an airport operating certificate develop and maintain an FAA-approved airport SMS. Much has been written in Airport Magazine and elsewhere about the principles of SMS and the preparation of an SMS manual — the document that sets forth each entity’s SMS program. Far less has been written about preparing for SMS, getting an airport ready for the methodical process of institutionalizing safety through new policies and procedures. When airport SMS will be mandated remains an open question because FAA will take comments on the proposed rule until July 5, 2011. Regardless of the implementation date, however, SMS ultimately will be required, and airports should consider preparing now for the changes that SMS will demand. In addition, at least some requirements will become effective in June with Order 5200.11 for small, medium and large hub airports. This order requires that the FAA airports 26

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

program conduct safety assessments for most airport actions, including airport layout plan (ALP) approvals, Part 77 hazard determinations, airspace approvals, construction project approvals, noise compatibility program approvals and modifications of standards. Airport sponsors will be expected to provide required planning data, to participate in safety risk management panels, and to comply with all mitigation measures that may fall within their purview. The order applies to all airports in the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS), not just commercial service airports, and will be phased in over a period of years, beginning in June 2011. The proposed rule for certificated airports would require an SMS covering aircraft operation in the movement and non-movement areas, and other airport operations addressed in Part 139. The proposed inclusion of the non-movement area is important because Part 139 currently imposes only limited obligations outside an airport’s movement area. An airport’s SMS would have to address the four pillars of SMS: a safety policy, safety risk management, safety assurance and safety promotion. The difficulty of implementing SMS will


vary enormously. Some airports already have a strong safety culture, efficient and extensive recordkeeping, considerable sponsor control over airfield activities, the necessary personnel hierarchy, and state laws that protect airports from liability. These airports will find implementation relatively straightforward. For other airports, however, implementation will demand changes to systems, policies and procedures (not to mention

requirements could make it easier for litigants to join airports in lawsuits over personnel matters or safety incidents. Airports should start by working with their counsel to make an accurate assessment of their existing liability exposure under state law. This audit should assess how state laws might affect the key SMS requirements, including information collection, recordkeeping, lease arrangements, personnel matters, confidential and nonpunitive reporting, and whether compliance with SMS requirements will alter the standard of care under state law. 2. Regulatory documents audit. Airports will have to change many of their regulatory documents to comply with SMS. The extent of these changes depends upon how much control the sponsor already exercises over airfield activities. Before starting a wholesale revision of all regulatory documents, sponsors should work with their counsel to audit existing regulatory documents to determine whether and what changes would be needed. Among those that may need revision are minimum standards, rules and regulations, lease terms, insurance coverage requirements, personnel policies (and requirements imposed on tenants), whistleblower protection rules, and recordkeeping and document retention policies.

relationships with users) that are not yet adapted to SMS principles. For airports that want to begin early preparations for SMS, the following eight steps should be a guide for this planning. Even for those that lack the resources to launch full-scale implementation, the first two tasks can be enormously helpful in preparing for SMS. 1. Legal exposure audit. SMS may well change the legal standards for the airport’s exposure to liability. The significance of such changes will depend largely upon state law and extent of existing immunity for airport sponsors. Even in those states where airports enjoy some immunity, the personnel, recordkeeping and information

3. Administrative audit. SMS not only entails significant recordkeeping, training and monitoring requirements, but it also requires that an airport’s personnel structure accommodate an “accountable executive” who is ultimately responsible for all safety matters on the airfield. Accommodating SMS may require changes in personnel policies, hierarchy and reporting mechanisms, and could require other administrative adjustments in everything from how records are kept to who is responsible for the various elements of SMS. Airports should make an early decision on how to adapt their existing administrative structure to the control mechanisms required for SMS. 4. Financial assessment. Airports may choose to outsource preparation of the SMS manual to a consultant team with SMS expertise. While the cost of preparing the AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

27


manual is likely to be relatively certain, the SMS manual will not be an isolated, stand-alone burden. It will need to be integrated with other airport functions. In some instances, airports will have to make substantial investments to accommodate SMS obligations for items such as new software or computer systems for recordkeeping and tracking, communications technology to allow disparate airfield elements to communicate effectively, and in many cases, new personnel to administer the SMS. These costs easily could eclipse the cost of preparing formal SMS documentation, and are not likely to be AIP eligible. Since FAA contemplates a relatively fast implementation schedule, and since budgets are as tight today as ever, airports should plan for these investments and identify appropriate funding sources far in advance. 5. Audit of needed FAA approvals. Not all SMS implementation will be a paperwork exercise. Especially because the Order 5200.11 requirements will be effective in June 2011 for some airports, airports should begin planning immediately to identify what FAA approvals will be needed for SMS implementation or to implement safety elements that will integrate into the airport’s SMS. The approvals for measures mandated by Order 5200.11 will not necessarily be the same — or even consistent with — the SMS requirements. A comprehensive assessment of needed approvals will enable methodical planning. 6. Assemble SMS review team. Consultants undoubtedly will be available to help prepare the airport’s SMS manual and other documentation. But while there are many qualified consultant teams, none of them will know your airport as well as your staff and tenants. The airport should assemble its own team to provide guidance on unique operational issues that the airport will face. The team should include not only senior staff but also operational staff, counsel, planners and key users, each of whom will approach SMS from his/ her own practical perspective. This review team should be assembled long before drafting the SMS manual; its members can 28

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2011

help identify practical vulnerabilities and problems that need to be addressed as part of SMS planning and can help to oversee preparation of the manual. 7. Prepare schedule for preparation of key documents. The next step is the preparation of an SMS planning schedule. This is not a schedule of the roll-out of SMS but instead a schedule for the preimplementation activities discussed above, all of which should be accomplished long before completion of the SMS manual. Many documents will have to be coordinated with other local government departments, city councils or county commissions. Legal review will be needed of all the implementation documents to address liability, personnel, contractual and lease issues. 8. Gap analysis. The last step in planning is also the first step in implementation of SMS. Most consultants recommend a gap analysis as the first step in implementation because it is this analysis that will determine what safety changes are needed when implementing SMS. The gap analysis needs to be candid, analytical, non-punitive and practical. Unless state law protects safety assessments and data from public disclosure, airports should work with their counsel to ensure that the gap analysis is afforded the maximum protection from disclosure (for example, through the attorney-client or attorney work product privilege). Any change in airports as fundamental as the proposed launch of SMS will take time to integrate into each airport’s existing culture. Even though the precise FAA requirements are still unknown, airports that are well prepared in advance for the arrival of SMS will find the transition both less daunting and less expensive than those that wait for the final FAA rule and deadline to begin planning.

While his firm represents many airports in SMS implementation planning, the views expressed here are his own and not those of his clients.

LIGHTING By Manchester-Boston Regional Airport and Leading Edge Design Group

anchester-Boston Regional Airport has grown significantly in size and in airline operations. After completing a major passenger terminal construction project in spring 1998 to meet traffic growth, the airport opened a new, six-level, 4,800-space customer parking garage the following December. As the airport increased terminal capacity and added airline options, the facilities team dealt with higher maintenance costs and inefficient energy usage. Further, the airport was pursuing its ongoing efforts to identify energy cost savings and sustainability opportunities. With improvements in LED lighting that resulted in better performance and lower costs, Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH), the local utility provider, identified financing opportunities through the Municipal Smart Start Program and worked with Leading Edge Design Group (LEDG) to present new light-

ing alternatives to the airport. Manchester-Boston previously had used this program successfully on several garage lighting projects. The entrance and exit ramps to the parking garage were lit with 400-watt Jonathan Adams metal halide fixtures that were pedestal mounted to shine on the ramp ceilings and that operated 24/7. The airport felt this could be improved. The PSNH program and a cost-analysis provided by LEDG enabled the project team to present a project plan, budget, financing options, and return on invest-

ment (ROI) data to airport management to gain approval to move forward with this improvement project. LEDG worked with partners to develop a custom 40-watt LED engine to fit the existing 400-watt metal halide fixture housings. Controls permit the lights to operate only during the evening hours, which further enhances the savings and life cycle of the product. This project was completed in June 2009. The airport dramatically has reduced its parking garage energy consumption for these fixtures from an estimated 318,864 kWh per year to 28,032 kWh per year and lowered annual energy costs in the garage by approximately $40,000. The LED lamps last for more than 50,000 hours versus 15,000 hours for the previous installation. They also have eliminated lighting maintenance costs for many years, improved the light levels, and created consistent color temperatures throughout. The project proved to be such an overwhelming success, achieving payback in little more than one year, that the airport’s facility manager, Jonathan Adams, asked PSNH and LEDG to investigate the possibilities available in the main terminal area. The intent was to take a systematic approach to address the multiple opportunities available to the airport for energy and maintenance cost savings in the main terminal building through lighting and control system upgrades. The decision was made to deal with the indirect ambient lighting throughout the main terminal space that was lit with 140, 250-watt metal halide fixtures mounted in a soffit approximately 12 feet above the floor. Again, the airport worked with PSNH and LEDG to develop a plan to maximize savings and minimize maintenance costs while enhancing light levels and color rendering throughout the main terminal areas. Within three weeks in September 2010, LEDG had replaced the metal halide fixtures with state-of-the-art LED fixtures. The main function of these fixtures is to provide lighting in the vaulted ceiling spaces of the terminal. A cutting-edge wireless control system was installed that consists of wireless relays at each fixture, daylight harvesters in the skylights and window walls of the terminal areas, wireless gateways and secure Internet connections. As the sun rises and sets, the new LED lights turn off as soon as there is 32

ample daylight in the space and turn back on as the daylight diminishes. Changes to the program can be made from anywhere that secure Internet access is available. Manchester-Boston Regional has reduced its main terminal energy consumption for these fixtures substantially from 355,656 kWh per year to 69,970 kWh per year and cut annual energy costs in the terminal by approximately $39,000. In addition, the airport has reduced maintenance costs by an estimated $11,500 annually due to decreased need for bulb and ballast replacement. The airport has found the benefits of the new LED lighting and wireless control systems to be considerable in terms of energy cost savings and elimination of maintenance costs. The LED lighting system has provided superior light quality and consistency and reduced the heat load and subsequent impact on the air conditioning system. The new wireless mesh control system, which can be expanded easily throughout all areas of the airport facility,

incorporates a Web-based dashboard that allows for real-time monitoring and control of the lighting system. Further, the software program provides important management data on energy savings, carbon reduction, and percentage of connected load. In its ongoing efforts to conserve, ManchesterBoston continues to work in concert with PSNH and LEDG. The existing 400-watt metal halide fixture heads on the airport roadway and shortterm parking lot are slated to be replaced in summer 2011 with 66-watt LED fixtures. It is anticipated that this work will reduce energy consumption by approximately 176,837 kWh per year with a resultant estimated cost savings of $27,200 per year, and estimated maintenance savings of $4,800 per year. With utility company programs available to assist airports with energy-efficiency upgrades, airports of all sizes can take advantage of innovative, long-term solutions that will drive down costs and improve the airport facility in many ways.

elcome to this special section of Airport Magazine about AAAE. The association’s rich, 83-year history has laid the foundation for an organization that is remarkable in many ways. No organization lasts into its ninth decade — the average company in the S&P 500 lasts only seven years before merging or disappearing altogether — without a very special culture that gets passed along from one generation to the next. AAAE has been fortunate to have developed a culture of member service, respect for individuals and entrepreneurship that stands out in the not-for-profit world. At AAAE, dues are small (3 percent of revenues), and members choose, and pay for, only the services each individual wants. With that model, AAAE has grown into one of the largest non-profits in America; and, anyone, from Pasco or Tucson or Washington’s airports, can become the leader of AAAE through hard work and earning the respect of his/her peers. In other words, if you are an airport executive, AAAE is you, collectively. You choose the services you want and the leaders who lead. The following pages describe in detail some of the outstanding services and products we offer members, and we are proud of the volunteers and staff who have championed these programs. From good old-fashioned representation of member interests before government to some 34

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2010

of the latest, high-tech computer services over the Internet, there is one theme that runs throughout AAAE: we attempt to both serve and network our members so they don’t have to face their common problems alone. Most communities only have one airport, so it has always been natural for airport executives to reach out across the nation to see if a peer — or an association of peers — has a solution they can use. New technology has made that outreach faster and more practical than at any time in our history, and AAAE tries to take advantage of that change. Among the business trends that are moving our way is an approaching explosion in business efficiency and convenience. Moving many IT operations away from stand-alone, complex and expensive internal IT systems, and getting the same software as “cloud services,” is a shift AAAE has embraced. We already offer Internet-based services to airport members to speed their employees’ security background vetting and to maintain their training programs and records. We are rolling out new GIS tools over the web, as airports of all sizes are required to use that technology. Our members

tell us there is a huge difference in whether a useful new software tool needs internal support and a local IT team — or just a Web browser and Internet connection. So you can look for many more services to come from AAAE that will be delivered in this fashion, and we invite our airport members to suggest services they need, and corporate members to suggest services they want to help provide, over the AAAE platform on the Web. AAAE has a huge advantage in this networking trend. We’ve always been about networking airport executives; we’ve spent more than $100 million on the IT infrastructure, staff, redundancy and services required for our existing cloud operations over the past decade (hard for some to believe, but true); and we’ve developed partners and technology in biometrics and computer-based training for Internet-based platforms that are leading-edge in their respective industries. Those are all advantages, but not AAAE’s one huge advantage. Rather, our huge advantage is that, if you are an airport executive, AAAE is you. When you give AAAE your airport’s critical data to hold, you still will decide who gains access to it and how. We aren’t a private company. We are an association of members who decide policy matters, and one of the overriding policies is to handle members’ information the way they tell us to handle it. So, giving up the IT maintenance of important airport information, without losing your control over it, is AAAE’s huge advantage in offering a platform on which these new services can run. To our corporate members, I want to say this is a vision of AAAE and your company working together. AAAE can hold airport data as a unique, trusted agent of airports, and offer a platform on which private companies with airport clients can access that data and serve their customers under common, industry-standard practices for platforms and applications. “Expertise” and “applications” always will be the key ingredients for turning data into useful information. There is much excitement ahead for AAAE, its members and its partners. The following pages will tell you more about what’s here today for finding help through AAAE instead of going it alone at your airport. AAAE always will be what airport executives say it should be — what you say it should be. Because AAAE is you. That’s our great and enduring strength as an organization, and why we are such a dynamic octogenarian with a long and exciting future ahead. 36

AAAE: A PROVEN, TRUSTED AGENT FOR CRITICAL AIRPORT DATA AAAE’s budgets over the past decade have totaled more than $300 million, with almost half of that amount spent to develop IT infrastructure and services for airports, including the Transportation Security Clearinghouse (TSC), Interactive Employee Training (IET) and the Spatial Airport Asset Management System (SAAMS), among others.  In addition to helping airports meet federal regulatory requirements, these programs allow airports to leverage AAAE’s unique, powerful and trusted IT capabilities and infrastructure for data management and storage. AAAE’s “cloud computing” capabilities are well-established and give airports the confidence that their data is protected by a trusted partner and accessible at all times via a simple Internet connection. AAAE actively is working with airports to identify future opportunities to leverage the association’s cloud computing capabilities and expertise.   

TSC DESIGNATED AVIATION CHANNELER AAAE’s Transportation Security Clearinghouse (TSC) recently was named as a Designated Aviation Channeler by TSA, extending the

clearinghouse’s designation to provide vetting services for the aviation community. In highlighting its nineyear track record as the most experienced and cost-effective credentialing system for transportation personnel in the country, TSA conferred the fourth approval for the TSC to perform aviation industry vetting services. The clearinghouse long has been praised for its highly flexible, open platform that is capable of accepting multiple forms of identity and vetting information on a secure network from more than 400 aviation enrollment centers around the nation and abroad. Since its inception in 2002, the clearinghouse has become the nation’s largest civilian clearinghouse, processing millions of TSA-mandated security threat assessments and biometrically based criminal history record checks. The clearinghouse model and operations were created out of necessity in 2001 to provide high levels of customer service to the aviation community at the lowest cost, while assisting airports and airlines to comply with federal government vetting mandates and security regulations. The clearinghouse heritage and focus on aviation priorities have evolved with the needs of

the aviation industry, resulting in online services and a highly trained customer service staff that responds to the unique needs of airport and airline security and personnel operations. The clearinghouse also recently announced new automated online services that streamline processing activities for airport badging offices. Airport management pointed out that repetitive data entry for vetting operations has increased personnel costs and data error rates. In response, the clearinghouse developed its Automated Integration Services to facilitate automated processing and one- time data entry for badging office personnel that can be customized to the unique requirements of individual airport operations. Scores of airports have taken advantage of the new service and associated reduced processing fees. For more information on the clearinghouse and its functions, you may go to www.tsc-csc.com or contact Jenna Gregory at (703) 7972550 or JGregory@asc-csc.com.

ALA TEAM SEEKS TO PROTECT AIRPORT PRIORITIES IN TOUGH BUDGET ENVIRONMENT AAAE’s Airport Legislative Alliance (ALA) staff has nearly AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 201

five decades of combined experience advocating in Washington directly on behalf of airport executives. The unique knowledge and expertise that accompanies those years of service is absolutely critical as Congress looks to dramatically reduce the size and scope of the federal government in an era of severe budget constraints.  The threats to AIP and other key airport programs are real and unprecedented. With annual budget deficits topping $1.5 trillion, the administration and members of both political parties in Congress have pledged to review every federal program thoroughly and make changes and cuts where possible. While everything is on the table, the co-chairs of President Obama’s deficit commission and several members of Congress have identified AIP specifically for cuts, calling for reduced funding overall and an end to grants to large and medium hub airports. The Essential Air Service (EAS) program also has been targeted for funding reductions.  In the face of a hostile budget environment, the ALA staff remains hard at work before Congress, arguing against proposed cuts to AIP, EAS and other key programs and urging lawmakers to give airports additional self-help in the form 38

of an increase in the federal cap on local PFCs. Efforts to defeat adoption of aircraft rescue and fire fighting standards that many airports consider to be excessive, and to extend permanently relief from the Alternative Minimum Tax penalty on airport bonds, continue as well. With so many competing interests vying for diminished federal resources, a key focus of the ALA team is ensuring that the concerns and legislative priorities of airport executives remain front and center with key lawmakers and their staffs.  In addition to daily work in the corridors of the Capitol and House and Senate office buildings, the team has helped to facilitate the appearance of AAAE First Vice Chair Kelly Johnson, A.A.E., director of Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, during a hearing on FAA reauthorization before the important House aviation subcommittee, and the participation of AAAE President Charles Barclay in a press conference with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Senate aviation subcommittee Chair Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and others during consideration of FAA legislation by the Senate.  The road ahead promises to be difficult, but the experienced and highly respected ALA team

­ working in concert with — airport professionals across the country — will continue its work on Capitol Hill to play defense when necessary and offense when possible to advance the legislative agenda of airport executives.

AAAE’S REGULATORY AFFAIRS TEAM MONITORS CRITICAL AIRPORT ISSUES Many significant regulatory changes are expected to come to fruition in 2011, in addition to the beginning of enforcement on existing regulations. The AAAE Regulatory Affairs team is poised not only to represent airports’ best interests before the regulatory agencies here in Washington, but also to guide airports through new regulations as they occur.  Safety Management Systems (SMS) will be at the top of FAA’s agenda for 2011. In preparation for the final rule, in March 2011, AAAE, in conjunction with ACI-NA and the San Antonio Airport System, hosted the successful “Implementing SMS at Your Airport Workshop,” which attracted more than 150 delegates. Attendees gathered to interact with airport personnel and consultants who have been implementing SMS through FAA pilot studies and to learn


AAAETODAY

AAAE’s Spatial Airport Asset Management System

how SMS will be implemented at their airports. The SMS rulemaking is one of the most important rulemakings to affect airports in this decade, and all airport personnel will need to become familiar with the proposed requirements and determine the best approach for each individual airport.  The Implementing SMS at Your Airport Workshop provided attendees with this knowledge prior to the final rule. Additionally, airport environmental issues, such as the final Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELG), greenhouse gas and wildlife hazard assessments, will be issues that the AAAE Regulatory Affairs team will continue to address on behalf of airports. On the ELG front, the proposed rule on deicing is expected in early 2011, which will leave many airports wondering what measures they need to take to stay compliant. Critical issues on the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2011 agenda will be ambient air quality regulations on avgas, and a greenhouse gas rule that requires

airports to report emissions data. The AAAE Regulatory Affairs team will continue to work aggressively to help airports identify the impact these rules and changes will have on your facilities and guide effective strategy to promote a safe and economically viable plan for your airport. 

SURVEY: AIRPORTS EMBRACING BASIC CONCEPTS Two-thirds of respondents to a recent airport security survey reported that they plan to incorporate elements of the Biometric Airport Security Identification Consortium (BASIC) Concept of Operations

as part of credentialing and access control projects. The survey, conducted by AAAE on behalf of BASIC, found that an overwhelming majority of respondents are familiar with BASIC. Respondents also provided useful data on plans for SMART cards, acquisition of credentialing and identity management software, and interoperability with other airports and other badged populations, such as first responders. BASIC, which is chaired by Jeanne Olivier, A.A.E., assistant director of aviation security and technology at the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, is an

Working with the Airports Consultants Council and the BASIC Technical Advisory Committee, the group is currently updating the latest version of its concept of operations. The BASIC group will use the feedback provided by AAAE members through the recent survey to advance the goals of BASIC and ensure BASIC adequately reflects and represents the interests of airport operators. In 2011, BASIC’s priorities include sharing lessons learned and sample RFP language collected from airports, as well as focusing on further refining the concept of operations. BASIC representatives also will work with TSA on endorsement of the BASIC Concept of Operations and possible funding options for early-adopter airports.

SAAMS HELPS AIRPORT MEMBERS MEET NEW FAA EALP REQUIREMENTS

airport-led initiative to work cooperatively with TSA on defining the path forward on credentialing and biometrics in the airport environment. 40

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2010

When FAA issued new requirements related to electronic Airport Layout Plans (eALPs) using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), many AAAE members expressed concern. While they support FAA’s initiatives to gather and use data as part of a shift to the Next Generation Air Traffic Control System, the requirements, which apply to airports collecting geospatial data with support from federal grants, led many smaller airports to wonder how they could afford a GIS program. Responding to these concerns, AAAE has developed SAAMS — the Spatial Airport Asset Management System. SAAMS is a platform designed to allow airports to utilize FAA-required Airports-GIS/eALP data and integrate it with other airport-owned data. SAAMS does not provide data collection or professional consulting services. Using SAAMS, airports retain ownership of their GIS data. A continuation of a long line of AAAE “cloud computing” services, SAAMS offers non-customized airport asset management tools and corresponding


AAAETODAY

AAAE’s ANTN multimedia division creates programming and supports association training and meetings.

airport data storage requiring only Internet connectivity on the client side. SAAMS’ tools leverage an integrated database, GIS data that airports will be providing FAA, electronic content management and other technologies. SAAMS’ core functionality is designed for both GIS and nonGIS technicians, particularly at smaller airports that want to use basic and useful tools, such as redlining, buffering and aircraft layout. Information captured in SAAMS can be shared quickly and easily with personnel in any department. Future SAAMS addon applications, such as lease and maintenance management, will be useful for GIS technicians and many other airport personnel. What can airports do with the SAAMS core functionality? Examples include determining crowd setbacks for an emergency event, measuring specific sections of the airfield for ground cover, or measuring ramp areas for aircraft layout in a matter of minutes. For additional information on SAAMS, visit SAAMS.aaae.org or contact Greg Mamary at (703) 824-0504, Ext. 176, or email greg. mamary@aaae.org.

IET: 2 MILLION COSTEFFECTIVE TRAINING SESSIONS AND COUNTING AAAE’s Interactive Employee Training (IET) System continues

to deliver cost-effective, efficient training to airport workers across the country at an unprecedented pace. In March 2011, IET delivered its two millionth training and testing session — an achievement that underscores the prominent role that the patented IET system plays in helping airports meet critical training needs in a cost-effective manner. AAAE has delivered more than 500 IET workstations to

91 airports since 2000. Each day, more than 1,000 different airport employees rely on IET courses to help meet federally mandated training requirements and to provide supplemental instruction. Interactive programs train these individuals on important safety and security responsibilities. The employees immediately are tested and given feedback on their understanding of the course material presented.


AAAETODAY

Upon completion, all training records are stored and tracked automatically, as required by federal regulations. IET technology is extremely cost-effective. At larger airports, the average cost per training session delivered has dropped to $5.29, with some airports reporting costs as low as $3.62 per session. IETs, which can be funded using AIP grants or PFC revenue, are customized to each airport’s specifications. Working with the airport, AAAE’s Airport News and Training Network (ANTN) multimedia

division assists with script development, deploys camera crews with extensive airport operations experience to shoot video, and edits the video into a complete course, including an interactive test. Courses are loaded onto computers, delivered to the airport and installed by ANTN staff. Customized courses developed for airports cover all key operations elements, including Security Identification Display Area (SIDA) procedures, airfield driver training, Part 139 regulations, basic airport security awareness, runway incursion

prevention, electric cart driving, customer service, and more. Courses can be developed in English or any other language. IET (http://www.aaae.org/ iet) is part of AAAE’s complete suite of training products and services tailored to meet every airport’s needs. AAAE’s eCISTM is a learning management system built on an open architecture. Instructors can choose from a large selection of activities, instructional components — including video shot on-site — to build their own custom training courses. The system is easily expandable

Among the new or expanded topics in the update are cargo security, biometrics in access control, emerging terrorist threats and pre-checkpoint security. The update also includes information on recent programs such as Trusted Traveler and screener privatization. The modules include a “What’s New” section to help guide ACE program members through the changes. AAAE tapped Jeff Price, the founder of aviation consulting firm Leading Edge Strategies and an aviation professor at Metro State College of Denver, to update the modules. Price, who also co-authored “Practical Aviation Security: Predicting and Preventing Future Threats,” is a regular contributor to AAAE’s training programs, serving as both an instructor and content provider. He wrote the original ACE-Security modules and was the lead author of AAAE’s recently updated Certified Member training materials. Candidates currently enrolled in the ACE-Security program have until July 1, 2011, to take the exam based on the existing version. After July 1, a new exam based on the revisions will be in effect.

AAAE Is You By Chip Barclay AAAE President

W

elcome to this special section of Airport Magazine about AAAE. The association’s rich, 83-year history has laid the foundation for an organization that is remarkable in many ways. No organization lasts into its ninth decade — the average company in the S&P 500 lasts only seven years before merging or disappearing altogether — without a very special culture that gets passed along from one generation to the next. AAAE has been fortunate to have developed a culture of member service, respect for individuals and entrepreneurship that stands out in the not-for-profit world. At AAAE, dues are small (3 percent of revenues), and members choose, and pay for, only the services each individual wants. With that model, AAAE has grown into one of the largest non-profits in America; and, anyone, from Pasco or Tucson or Washington’s airports, can become the leader of AAAE through hard work and earning the respect of his/her peers. In other words, if you are an airport executive, AAAE is you, collectively. You choose the services you want and the leaders who lead. The following pages describe in detail some of the outstanding services and products we offer members, and we are proud of the volunteers and staff who have championed these programs. From good old-fashioned representation of member interests before government to some 34

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2010

of the latest, high-tech computer services over the Internet, there is one theme that runs throughout AAAE: we attempt to both serve and network our members so they don’t have to face their common problems alone. Most communities only have one airport, so it has always been natural for airport executives to reach out across the nation to see if a peer — or an association of peers — has a solution they can use. New technology has made that outreach faster and more practical than at any time in our history, and AAAE tries to take advantage of that change. Among the business trends that are moving our way is an approaching explosion in business efficiency and convenience. Moving many IT operations away from stand-alone, complex and expensive internal IT systems, and getting the same software as “cloud services,” is a shift AAAE has embraced. We already offer Internet-based services to airport members to speed their employees’ security background vetting and to maintain their training programs and records. We are rolling out new GIS tools over the web, as airports of all sizes are required to use that technology. Our members

tell us there is a huge difference in whether a useful new software tool needs internal support and a local IT team — or just a Web browser and Internet connection. So you can look for many more services to come from AAAE that will be delivered in this fashion, and we invite our airport members to suggest services they need, and corporate members to suggest services they want to help provide, over the AAAE platform on the Web. AAAE has a huge advantage in this networking trend. We’ve always been about networking airport executives; we’ve spent more than $100 million on the IT infrastructure, staff, redundancy and services required for our existing cloud operations over the past decade (hard for some to believe, but true); and we’ve developed partners and technology in biometrics and computer-based training for Internet-based platforms that are leading-edge in their respective industries. Those are all advantages, but not AAAE’s one huge advantage. Rather, our huge advantage is that, if you are an airport executive, AAAE is you. When you give AAAE your airport’s critical data to hold, you still will decide who gains access to it and how. We aren’t a private company. We are an association of members who decide policy matters, and one of the overriding policies is to handle members’ information the way they tell us to handle it. So, giving up the IT maintenance of important airport information, without losing your control over it, is AAAE’s huge advantage in offering a platform on which these new services can run. To our corporate members, I want to say this is a vision of AAAE and your company working together. AAAE can hold airport data as a unique, trusted agent of airports, and offer a platform on which private companies with airport clients can access that data and serve their customers under common, industry-standard practices for platforms and applications. “Expertise” and “applications” always will be the key ingredients for turning data into useful information. There is much excitement ahead for AAAE, its members and its partners. The following pages will tell you more about what’s here today for finding help through AAAE instead of going it alone at your airport. AAAE always will be what airport executives say it should be — what you say it should be. Because AAAE is you. That’s our great and enduring strength as an organization, and why we are such a dynamic octogenarian with a long and exciting future ahead. 36

AAAE: A PROVEN, TRUSTED AGENT FOR CRITICAL AIRPORT DATA AAAE’s budgets over the past decade have totaled more than $300 million, with almost half of that amount spent to develop IT infrastructure and services for airports, including the Transportation Security Clearinghouse (TSC), Interactive Employee Training (IET) and the Spatial Airport Asset Management System (SAAMS), among others.  In addition to helping airports meet federal regulatory requirements, these programs allow airports to leverage AAAE’s unique, powerful and trusted IT capabilities and infrastructure for data management and storage. AAAE’s “cloud computing” capabilities are well-established and give airports the confidence that their data is protected by a trusted partner and accessible at all times via a simple Internet connection. AAAE actively is working with airports to identify future opportunities to leverage the association’s cloud computing capabilities and expertise.   

TSC DESIGNATED AVIATION CHANNELER AAAE’s Transportation Security Clearinghouse (TSC) recently was named as a Designated Aviation Channeler by TSA, extending the

clearinghouse’s designation to provide vetting services for the aviation community. In highlighting its nineyear track record as the most experienced and cost-effective credentialing system for transportation personnel in the country, TSA conferred the fourth approval for the TSC to perform aviation industry vetting services. The clearinghouse long has been praised for its highly flexible, open platform that is capable of accepting multiple forms of identity and vetting information on a secure network from more than 400 aviation enrollment centers around the nation and abroad. Since its inception in 2002, the clearinghouse has become the nation’s largest civilian clearinghouse, processing millions of TSA-mandated security threat assessments and biometrically based criminal history record checks. The clearinghouse model and operations were created out of necessity in 2001 to provide high levels of customer service to the aviation community at the lowest cost, while assisting airports and airlines to comply with federal government vetting mandates and security regulations. The clearinghouse heritage and focus on aviation priorities have evolved with the needs of

the aviation industry, resulting in online services and a highly trained customer service staff that responds to the unique needs of airport and airline security and personnel operations. The clearinghouse also recently announced new automated online services that streamline processing activities for airport badging offices. Airport management pointed out that repetitive data entry for vetting operations has increased personnel costs and data error rates. In response, the clearinghouse developed its Automated Integration Services to facilitate automated processing and one- time data entry for badging office personnel that can be customized to the unique requirements of individual airport operations. Scores of airports have taken advantage of the new service and associated reduced processing fees. For more information on the clearinghouse and its functions, you may go to www.tsc-csc.com or contact Jenna Gregory at (703) 7972550 or JGregory@asc-csc.com.

five decades of combined experience advocating in Washington directly on behalf of airport executives. The unique knowledge and expertise that accompanies those years of service is absolutely critical as Congress looks to dramatically reduce the size and scope of the federal government in an era of severe budget constraints.  The threats to AIP and other key airport programs are real and unprecedented. With annual budget deficits topping $1.5 trillion, the administration and members of both political parties in Congress have pledged to review every federal program thoroughly and make changes and cuts where possible. While everything is on the table, the co-chairs of President Obama’s deficit commission and several members of Congress have identified AIP specifically for cuts, calling for reduced funding overall and an end to grants to large and medium hub airports. The Essential Air Service (EAS) program also has been targeted for funding reductions.  In the face of a hostile budget environment, the ALA staff remains hard at work before Congress, arguing against proposed cuts to AIP, EAS and other key programs and urging lawmakers to give airports additional self-help in the form 38

of an increase in the federal cap on local PFCs. Efforts to defeat adoption of aircraft rescue and fire fighting standards that many airports consider to be excessive, and to extend permanently relief from the Alternative Minimum Tax penalty on airport bonds, continue as well. With so many competing interests vying for diminished federal resources, a key focus of the ALA team is ensuring that the concerns and legislative priorities of airport executives remain front and center with key lawmakers and their staffs.  In addition to daily work in the corridors of the Capitol and House and Senate office buildings, the team has helped to facilitate the appearance of AAAE First Vice Chair Kelly Johnson, A.A.E., director of Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, during a hearing on FAA reauthorization before the important House aviation subcommittee, and the participation of AAAE President Charles Barclay in a press conference with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.), Senate aviation subcommittee Chair Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) and others during consideration of FAA legislation by the Senate.  The road ahead promises to be difficult, but the experienced and highly respected ALA team

­ working in concert with — airport professionals across the country — will continue its work on Capitol Hill to play defense when necessary and offense when possible to advance the legislative agenda of airport executives.

AAAE’S REGULATORY AFFAIRS TEAM MONITORS CRITICAL AIRPORT ISSUES Many significant regulatory changes are expected to come to fruition in 2011, in addition to the beginning of enforcement on existing regulations. The AAAE Regulatory Affairs team is poised not only to represent airports’ best interests before the regulatory agencies here in Washington, but also to guide airports through new regulations as they occur.  Safety Management Systems (SMS) will be at the top of FAA’s agenda for 2011. In preparation for the final rule, in March 2011, AAAE, in conjunction with ACI-NA and the San Antonio Airport System, hosted the successful “Implementing SMS at Your Airport Workshop,” which attracted more than 150 delegates. Attendees gathered to interact with airport personnel and consultants who have been implementing SMS through FAA pilot studies and to learn


AAAETODAY

AAAE’s Spatial Airport Asset Management System

how SMS will be implemented at their airports. The SMS rulemaking is one of the most important rulemakings to affect airports in this decade, and all airport personnel will need to become familiar with the proposed requirements and determine the best approach for each individual airport.  The Implementing SMS at Your Airport Workshop provided attendees with this knowledge prior to the final rule. Additionally, airport environmental issues, such as the final Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELG), greenhouse gas and wildlife hazard assessments, will be issues that the AAAE Regulatory Affairs team will continue to address on behalf of airports. On the ELG front, the proposed rule on deicing is expected in early 2011, which will leave many airports wondering what measures they need to take to stay compliant. Critical issues on the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2011 agenda will be ambient air quality regulations on avgas, and a greenhouse gas rule that requires

airports to report emissions data. The AAAE Regulatory Affairs team will continue to work aggressively to help airports identify the impact these rules and changes will have on your facilities and guide effective strategy to promote a safe and economically viable plan for your airport. 

SURVEY: AIRPORTS EMBRACING BASIC CONCEPTS Two-thirds of respondents to a recent airport security survey reported that they plan to incorporate elements of the Biometric Airport Security Identification Consortium (BASIC) Concept of Operations

as part of credentialing and access control projects. The survey, conducted by AAAE on behalf of BASIC, found that an overwhelming majority of respondents are familiar with BASIC. Respondents also provided useful data on plans for SMART cards, acquisition of credentialing and identity management software, and interoperability with other airports and other badged populations, such as first responders. BASIC, which is chaired by Jeanne Olivier, A.A.E., assistant director of aviation security and technology at the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey, is an

Working with the Airports Consultants Council and the BASIC Technical Advisory Committee, the group is currently updating the latest version of its concept of operations. The BASIC group will use the feedback provided by AAAE members through the recent survey to advance the goals of BASIC and ensure BASIC adequately reflects and represents the interests of airport operators. In 2011, BASIC’s priorities include sharing lessons learned and sample RFP language collected from airports, as well as focusing on further refining the concept of operations. BASIC representatives also will work with TSA on endorsement of the BASIC Concept of Operations and possible funding options for early-adopter airports.

SAAMS HELPS AIRPORT MEMBERS MEET NEW FAA EALP REQUIREMENTS

airport-led initiative to work cooperatively with TSA on defining the path forward on credentialing and biometrics in the airport environment. 40

AIRPORTMAGAZINE.NET | APRIL/MAY 2010

When FAA issued new requirements related to electronic Airport Layout Plans (eALPs) using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), many AAAE members expressed concern. While they support FAA’s initiatives to gather and use data as part of a shift to the Next Generation Air Traffic Control System, the requirements, which apply to airports collecting geospatial data with support from federal grants, led many smaller airports to wonder how they could afford a GIS program. Responding to these concerns, AAAE has developed SAAMS — the Spatial Airport Asset Management System. SAAMS is a platform designed to allow airports to utilize FAA-required Airports-GIS/eALP data and integrate it with other airport-owned data. SAAMS does not provide data collection or professional consulting services. Using SAAMS, airports retain ownership of their GIS data. A continuation of a long line of AAAE “cloud computing” services, SAAMS offers non-customized airport asset management tools and corresponding


AAAETODAY

AAAE’s ANTN multimedia division creates programming and supports association training and meetings.

airport data storage requiring only Internet connectivity on the client side. SAAMS’ tools leverage an integrated database, GIS data that airports will be providing FAA, electronic content management and other technologies. SAAMS’ core functionality is designed for both GIS and nonGIS technicians, particularly at smaller airports that want to use basic and useful tools, such as redlining, buffering and aircraft layout. Information captured in SAAMS can be shared quickly and easily with personnel in any department. Future SAAMS addon applications, such as lease and maintenance management, will be useful for GIS technicians and many other airport personnel. What can airports do with the SAAMS core functionality? Examples include determining crowd setbacks for an emergency event, measuring specific sections of the airfield for ground cover, or measuring ramp areas for aircraft layout in a matter of minutes. For additional information on SAAMS, visit SAAMS.aaae.org or contact Greg Mamary at (703) 824-0504, Ext. 176, or email greg. mamary@aaae.org.

IET: 2 MILLION COSTEFFECTIVE TRAINING SESSIONS AND COUNTING AAAE’s Interactive Employee Training (IET) System continues

to deliver cost-effective, efficient training to airport workers across the country at an unprecedented pace. In March 2011, IET delivered its two millionth training and testing session — an achievement that underscores the prominent role that the patented IET system plays in helping airports meet critical training needs in a cost-effective manner. AAAE has delivered more than 500 IET workstations to

91 airports since 2000. Each day, more than 1,000 different airport employees rely on IET courses to help meet federally mandated training requirements and to provide supplemental instruction. Interactive programs train these individuals on important safety and security responsibilities. The employees immediately are tested and given feedback on their understanding of the course material presented.


AAAETODAY

Upon completion, all training records are stored and tracked automatically, as required by federal regulations. IET technology is extremely cost-effective. At larger airports, the average cost per training session delivered has dropped to $5.29, with some airports reporting costs as low as $3.62 per session. IETs, which can be funded using AIP grants or PFC revenue, are customized to each airport’s specifications. Working with the airport, AAAE’s Airport News and Training Network (ANTN) multimedia

division assists with script development, deploys camera crews with extensive airport operations experience to shoot video, and edits the video into a complete course, including an interactive test. Courses are loaded onto computers, delivered to the airport and installed by ANTN staff. Customized courses developed for airports cover all key operations elements, including Security Identification Display Area (SIDA) procedures, airfield driver training, Part 139 regulations, basic airport security awareness, runway incursion

prevention, electric cart driving, customer service, and more. Courses can be developed in English or any other language. IET (http://www.aaae.org/ iet) is part of AAAE’s complete suite of training products and services tailored to meet every airport’s needs. AAAE’s eCISTM is a learning management system built on an open architecture. Instructors can choose from a large selection of activities, instructional components — including video shot on-site — to build their own custom training courses. The system is easily expandable
