NEW SMYRNA BEACH MUNICIPAL AIRPORT AIRPORT MASTER PLAN UPDATE
DEVELOPMENT PLAN - A detailed land use plan for all or specific areas on an airport. The plan usually includes a plot map depicting parcel size and configuration, access, land use categories, utilities, and performance standards for each parcel and use category.
DISPLACED THRESHOLD - A runway threshold that is located at a point other than the designated beginning of the runway.
DNL - See DAY-NIGHT AVERAGE SOUND LEVEL.
EFFECTS - See IMPACT.
ENGINE RUNUP AREA - An area on an airport where aircraft engines are serviced or tested. The noise from such servicing or testing can affect neighborhoods adjacent to the airport.
ENPLANED PASSENGERS - The volume of passengers outbound from an airport. The annual passenger volume of an airport is the total of enplaned and deplaned passengers. (See DEPLANED PASSENGERS)
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT (EIS) - A statement prepared under the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), Section 102(2) (c). The EIS represents a federal agency’s evaluation of the effects of a proposed action on the environment. Regulations relating to the preparation of an EIS are published in FAA Order 5050.4A.
FAA - See FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION.
FAA ADVISORY CIRCULAR 150/5300-13 - This document, titled Airport Design, contains airport design standards, including descriptions of various subdivisions of FAR Part 77 such as obstacle free zones (OFZs), object free areas (OFAs), and runway protection zones (RPZs) formerly referred to as “clear zones” - on airports. According to Paragraph 211, “Safe and efficient operations at an airport require that certain areas on and near the airport be clear of objects or restricted to objects with a certain function, composition, and/or height.” To achieve this requirement, object clearing criteria contained in the handbook describe the type of objects tolerated within various subdivisions of FAR Part 77. Aircraft are controlled by aircraft operating rules and not by these criteria. However, objects not in conformance with these criteria may result in aircraft operating restrictions.
FAA HANDBOOK 7400.2 - This document, titled Procedures for Handling Airspace Matters, contains procedures and guidelines for conducting aeronautical studies and determining effects of existing or proposed objects that exceed FAR Part 77 standards. Objects that exceed FAR Part 77 standards are subject to an aeronautical study and are presumed to be hazards to air navigation unless an aeronautical study determines otherwise. However, once an aeronautical study has been initiated, Part 77 standards are not the basis for determining whether an object would be a hazard. Other standards, including operational, procedural, and electronic requirements, are used to determine if the object being studied would actually be a hazard to air navigation. The outcome of an FAA aeronautical study is either a “Determination of No Hazard” or “Determination of Hazard to Air Navigation.” (See FAR PART 77)
