Airport Association releases airfield pavements guide for Australia’s regional and remote airports

The Australian Airports Association has launched a new guide on airfield pavements for regional and remote airports across Australia.

Airport Practice Note (APN) 12 Supplement – Pavements for Rural and Remote Airports was developed to meet the unique needs of regional and remote aerodromes as they maintain and upgrade their runways.

Australian Airports Association Chief Executive Officer Caroline Wilkie said the supplement responded to member feedback that rural and remote airports often had very different requirements when compared to airports in metropolitan centres.

She said the supplement built on the existing practice note, which examined more conventional methods used by larger airports. “Our members told us there was a need for more detailed information on pavements typical to smaller regional and remote airports,”

“We enlisted the expertise of the University of the Sunshine Coast’s Greg White to assist us and have delivered a comprehensive guide tailored to the needs of the regions.

“We look forward to talking with our members about how the guide will support their decision making when maintaining and upgrading their runways in the future.”

Airport operators, consultants and other industry representatives were also consulted in the development of the supplement.

The launch adds to the suite of Airport Practice Notes developed by the Australian Airports Association to assist members with getting the most out of their day-to-day airport operations.

The supplement is available free to Australian Airports Association members and can be found at their website.
