  4. Aeronautics Functional Organizational Chart

  5. Aeronautics Budget FY 2012-13 • Due to a decrease of revenues of approximately 25% and $4.0 million transferred from the State Aeronautics Account to the State General Fund in FY-2009-10. • Grant funding is limited, but as many grants as possible will be funded. Please check funding status at: Click the link to “Airport Funding Status”. • We WILL be able to fund 100% of Annual Grants, anticipate funding 100% of AIP Matching Grants, and are skeptical that we will be able to fund any new A&D grants this FY. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  6. Aeronautics Funding Projection REVENUE: EXPENSES: 2012/13 FY Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  7. Airport Loan Program • Loan Eligibility: • Cities, counties, and airport districts • Most projects that benefit the airport are eligible, especially revenue-generating • Local Match for FAA AIP grants is eligible • Loan Approval Considerations: • Economic feasibility is a major factor for revenue-generating projects such as hangars and fueling facilities • Sponsor’s overall financial status • Sponsor’s repayment history on previously funded loans Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  8. Airport Loan Program (con’t) • Loan Process • Submit completed application to Department:Go to; click the Grants and Loans tab for complete information • Department conducts public and internal hearings • Loan agreement is prepared by Department • State Controller’s Office prepares loan payment for disbursement 6-8 weeks after the loan is approved • Total time is 2-3 months to process loan Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

Airport Loan Program (con’t) • Loan Conditions • First payment on loan is due one year from the date the warrant was issued by the SCO • Loan terms vary from 8 to 17 years • Simple interest is charged. Current rate is 4.24% • Loans may fund 100%; a local match is not required • Loans are subject to audit Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  10. State Dollars for Your Airport • State Dollars for Your Airport is on our website: The document can be found under “Publications and Forms”. • This is a “How to…” manual for airport managers, sponsoring agencies, and ALUC’s to better understand the funding programs and application procedures. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  11. State Aviation Legislation • AB 511, Assembly Member Yamada-Davis • This bill added a section to the State Aeronautics Act. It provides requirements for marking and lighting (optional) meteorological evaluation towers (METs) that are erected to gather wind data over a period of time at locations where wind energy facilities may be built; specifically, those higher than 50 feet but lower than 200 feet to be marking standards that are issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). • Status: Chaptered by Secretary of State - Chapter 182, Statutes of 2012. August 27. Approved and signed by the Governor. Effective January 1, 2013. Sunset: 5 years. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  12. State Aviation Legislation • AB 662, Assembly Member Hueso-Chula Vista • This would require that new airport land use compatibility plans that are required to include AICUZ data go through a NEPA review first. If not, the AICUZ won’t need to be integrated into the CLUP. Issue: City of Coronado compliance w/NAS Coronado AICUZ. • Status: The bill died and is no longer considered. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  13. State Aviation Legislation • SB 446, State Senator Dutton-Rancho Cucamonga • This legislation would establish the Ontario International Airport Authority and require the transfer of management and operational control of the Ontario International Airport from the City of Los Angeles to the authority. • Status: Discussion on this bill stopped late last year, and the last two hearings were cancelled at the request of the author. Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  14. State Aviation Legislation • SB 619, State Senator Fuller-Bakersfield • This bill provides an exemption from the regulatory jurisdiction of the state Bureau of Private Postsecondary Education (BPPE) to flight instructors and flight schools. • Status: This bill passed at the end of last year’s session and is now law.

  15. Office of Airports • In CY 2011, Aviation Safety Officers inspected 152 Public-Use Airports and 91 Hospital Heliports (>60%). • Updated “5010” Airport Master Records for 131 airports (>100% of FAA contract) • Evaluated 29 schools & State buildings • Continue to work with airport and heliport managers and sponsors to improve safety and meet standards Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  16. Wildlife Hazard Assessment • $1.3M FAA grant to conduct WHA studies at 10 GA airports in Southern California • Contract with Meade & Hunt • Aeronautics POC: Derek Kantar • (916)-651-0597 Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  17. Airport Economic Study • Grant from FHWA to study the socio-economic value of the State’s airport functional classification system. • Study will also evaluate the system with and without the inclusion of smart growth elements. • Contract with Cambridge Associates • Aero POC: Derek Kantar (916) 651-0597 Caltrans Division of Aeronautics

  18. Disaster Recovery Study • Funding from the Division of Research and Innovation to study the role airports can play in the recovery of disasters in the San Francisco Bay Area. • Study will coordinate with FEMA, CalEMA, MTC, and Caltrans District 4 emergency response efforts. • Aeronautics POC: Colette Armao • (916) 654-5346 Caltrans Division of Aeronautics
