Intention to File

Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) Application 22-05-C-00

 

 

 

 

The Albany County Airport Authority (Authority) as owner and operator of the Albany International (ABL), is posting this public notice as part of the Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) Application process under 14 CFR 158.24.

 

The Authority intends to file PFC Application 22-05-C-00 with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) which includes five (5) “Impose and Use” projects.  The Authority is requesting to utilize PFCs to reimburse for local funding used on each project, totaling $26,170,000.  The five (5) projects anticipated for including in this application are identified and described below:

 

Project PFC05-01 Design and Reconstruct Terminal Apron

Project Description:  This project will include design, construction management and the removal of approximately existing 677,794 square feet of existing asphalt pavement, removal of all substandard areas of sub base material, cleaning and/or replacement of existing drainage pipe including under drains, proof rolling of sub grade, placement and compaction of all newly installed P-209 and placement of P-401 B & S materials in lifts.  This project will also include joint sealing, striping and site restoration including topsoil, seed and mulching.  This will be a complicated phased project to insure that all airline operations are maintained throughout the duration of the proposed project.

 

This project is eligible pursuant to 158.15(a)(1) and will enhance safety at the airport and for the national air transportation system.

 

Project Justification : This project meets all applicable AIP eligibility requirements of FAA Order 5100-38D, Table I-4,d(1)-(6)  The apron pavement is 30 years old and has reached its useful service life. This apron has had numerous spot repairs over the past few years and pavement condition index (AWPCI) is rated as Fair (70-56). The reconstruction is necessary for one homogenous piece of pavement that will extend the overall useful life of the pavement. There is evidence of poor subsurface drainage and poor transverse loading transfer. Cost estimate is thought to be total project costs, including planning and design professional fees, geotechnical analysis, construction costs, project inspection and materials testing.

Project PFC05-04  Purchase Two (2) Airfield Brooms

Project Description:  This project includes acquisition of two (2) Airfield Brooms. This equipment will replace existing units M31 and M32 that is over18 years old and will allow the Airport to maintain adequate equipment to clear Priority 1.

 

This project is eligible pursuant to 158.15(a)(1) and will preserve safety at the airport and for the national air transportation system.

 

Project Justification:   This project meets all applicable AIP eligibility requirements of FAA Order 5100-38D, Table M-1(d)(1). Albany International Airport possesses a 14 CFR Part 139 certificate and is a small-hub, commercial service airport. The Airport currently owns six (6) runway brooms. In accordance with AC 150/5220-20A, Section 2-3.a., at least 9 brooms are warranted for the Priority One areas. Based on the Priority 1 area of the airside pavement requiring snow removal identified within the Airport Snow and Ice Control Plan, one runway broom is required for every 750,000 sq.ft. per Section 2-3.a. of AC 150/5220-20A. Therefore, four (4) brooms are required. The airport is located in an area that receives significantly more than 30 inches of snow annually. This project will preserve the safety and efficiency of the Airport and enhance capacity of the national Air Transportation System through the expeditious removal of snow and ice from the single runway and taxiways thereby providing an all-weather airport for all categories of users. This equipment is required to maintain operational safety criteria in accordance with AC 150/5200-30A. This project meets all applicable AIP eligibility requirements of FAA Order 5100-38D, Table M-1, d.(1).
