Appendix A: The Aviation Library A large library of documents exist to help direct and guide airport activities. In addition to local and state resources, there are federal regulations, advisory circulars, and orders, and industry group publications. Information about these follows. Local Useful information at the local level includes: The airport's layout plan and master plan; The airport's rules and regulations; The airport's minimum standards; and Local ordinances and land use plan. State Several state aviation offices have published guidance and websites that provide useful information regarding aviation airport programs. Federal An extensive set of federal regulations govern aviation activities, including airports, pilots, general aviation, and airlines. These are found in the U.S. Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). The CFR is broken into various titles that in turn are divided into Parts. All federal regulations can be found on the web at http://www.gpoaccess.gov/cfr. The following are some of the most frequently referenced regulations: Title 14 Part 1 Definitions and Abbreviations Title 14 Part 77 Objects Affecting Navigable Airspace Title 14 Part 91 General Operating and Flight Rules Title 14 Part 121 Air Carrier Certification Title 14 Part 135 Operating Requirements for Commuter and On-Demand Aircraft Title 14 Part 139 Certification and Operations: Land Airports Serving Certain Air Carriers Title 14 Part 150 Airport Noise Compatibility Planning Title 49 Part 18 Uniform Administrative Requirements for Grants Title 49 Part 1542 Airport Security The FAA makes available a series of advisory circulars (ACs) to help persons understand and apply standards for the planning, operation, maintenance, design, and construction of airports. The ACs specific to airports are compiled into the "150" series of ACs. They can be found on the FAA website at http://www.faa.gov/airports/. A few often used ones are: 150/5100-14 Architectural Engineering, and Planning Consultant Services for Airport Grant Projects 150/5190-5 Exclusive Rights and Minimum Standards for Commercial Aeronautical Activities 150/5300-13 Airport Design 50

One example is AOPA's Guide for Airport Advocates. Airpor t Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) In addition to this primer on airport issues for the part-time policy maker, ACRP has published several useful reports and guidebooks. Their publications may be found at http://www.trb.org/ACRP/Public. Examples are: Report 15 Aircraft Noise: A Toolkit for Managing Community Expectations Report 16 Guidebook for Managing Small Airports Report 18 Passenger Air Service Development Techniques Report 28 Marketing Guidebook for Small Airports Report 32 Guidebook for Addressing Aircraft/Wildlife Hazards at General Aviation Airports 51
