Guidebook for Developing State Aviation System Plans

Managing state aviation systems includes activities that vary by state. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires states to produce a system plan that addresses their aviation needs in order to obtain federal dollars to meet those needs. FAA Advisory Circular 150/5070-7, the airport system planning process, outlines the basic requirements and components of a system plan. While this publication provides a good base from which to work, a need for additional guidance on how system plans can better meet states’ needs has been identified. The objective of this research is to provide guidance that can be used by state aviation agencies to identify the roles and responsibilities in managing state aviation systems and scope system plans that meet the unique needs of each state.
