This iteration focuses on revisions for runway layout and distances for airport planners and engineers. The hefty 296-page document was also revised to “improve readability.”
The FAA’s Office of Airports recently updated the Airport Design Advisory Circular (AC) 150/5300-13A, the first major rewrite of the AC in more than 20 years. This AC is critical to the aviation industry because it outlines the standards and recommendations used for the development of airport layout plans and airport construction projects. The AC, used by airport operators, airport planners and engineers, gives the geometric layout and engineering design requirements for runways, taxiways, aprons, and other airport facilities.
The AC is the result of collaboration between the FAA and the aviation industry.
