NEW SMYRNA BEACH MUNICIPAL AIRPORT AIRPORT MASTER PLAN UPDATE
FAR PART 158 - Federal Aviation Regulations Part 158, Passenger Facility Charges. Adopts new regulations to establish a passenger facility charge (PFC) program. The rule implements Sections 9110 and 9111 of the Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990, which requires the Department of Transportation to issue regulations under which a public agency may be authorized to impose a PFC of $1, $2, $3, or $4.50 per enplaned passenger at a commercial service airport it controls. The proceeds from such PFCs are to be used to finance eligible airport-related projects that preserve or enhance safety, capacity, or security of the national air transportation system, reduce noise from an airport that is part of such system, or furnish opportunities for enhanced competition between or among air carriers. The rule sets forth procedures for public agency applications for authority to impose PFCs, for FAA processing of such applications; for collection, handling, and remittance of PFCs by air carriers; for record-keeping and auditing by air carriers and public agencies; for terminating PFC authority; and for reducing federal grant funds apportioned to large and medium hub airports imposing a PFC.
FAR PART 161 - Federal Aviation Regulations Part 161, Notice and Approval of Airport Noise and Access Restrictions. Establishes a program for reviewing airport noise and access restrictions on the operations of Stage II and Stage III aircraft. This rule is in response to specific provisions in the Airport Noise and Capacity Act of 1990 and is a major element of the national aviation noise policy required by that statute.
FEDERAL AVIATION ADMINISTRATION (FAA) - The FAA is the agency of the U.S. Department of Transportation that is charged with (1) regulating air commerce to promote its safety and development; (2) achieving the efficient use of navigable airspace of the United States; (3) promoting, encouraging, and developing civil aviation; (4) developing and operating a common system of air traffic control and air navigation for both civilian and military aircraft; and (5) promoting the development of a national system of airports.
FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT (FONSI) - A finding by the FAA that a proposed action by an airport sponsor will have no significant impact (on the environment). Specific guidelines for the preparation of a FONSI report are included in FAA Order 5050.4A.
FLIGHT TRACK - The average flight path flown by aircraft within specific corridors. Deviation from these tracks occurs because of weather, pilot technique, air traffic control, and aircraft weight. Individual flight tracks within a corridor are “averaged” for purposes of modeling noise exposure using the Integrated Noise Model.
FONSI - See FINDING OF NO SIGNIFICANT IMPACT. GATE - The designated location in a terminal building that contains an airline podium area where ticketed passengers check in for a specific flight. (See APRON)
GENERAL AVIATION (GA) - All civil aviation except that classified as air carrier or air taxi. The types of aircraft typically used in GA activities vary from multiengine jet aircraft to single-engine piston aircraft.
