Quick Response for Special Needs. Task 11. How Proposed Firefighting Standards Would Impact Airports

<p>Part 139 of title 14, Code of Federal Regulations, requires airports that serve: 1) scheduled passenger-carrying operations of an air carrier operating aircraft designed for more than 9 passenger seats; and 2) unscheduled passenger-carrying operations of an air carrier operating aircraft designed for at least 31 passenger seats, to receive operating certificates from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Operators of Part 139 airports are also required to meet certain aircraft rescue and fire fighting (ARFF) standards. In March 2001, the FAA tasked the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ARAC) to develop a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to identity ARFF requirements that should be added, modified or deleted. Despite the ongoing rulemaking process, some aviation stakeholders are recommending that airports comply with certain National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) standards and other NFPA-related requirements or International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) fire fighting standards. </p>
