Tomorrow at 12:00 pm CST, Lochner’s Ed Agnew will be presenting as part of Airport Consultants Council (ACC)’s live webinar, “Airport Improvement Program (AIP) 201.” This webinar will provide attendees with a high-level background of the AIP and educate them on its primary purpose and goals.

In addition to covering basic terminology and the tools being used in the AIP process, this webinar will strengthen attendees’ understanding of the federal definition of airport development and provide advanced knowledge surrounding the goals, objectives, and operation of the Airport Improvement Program. Participants will also be introduced to the new Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Order 5090.5, which combines policies associated with the National Plan of Integrate Airport Systems and Airports Capital Improvement Program. Other items to be discussed are the updated project priority matrix and the resources used to justify projects as well as the relevant policies and practices the FAA uses to evaluate candidates. The webinar will conclude with a case study highlighting options for successfully implementing a multi-year project and CIP program.
