Schedule Operational Dates

As an airport sponsor, you can set or propose a target operational date when creating a new Survey project or Design/As-Built project. Based on the next AIRAC publication date, the system works backwards to mark the deadlines for all stakeholders. The target operational date function is only available if your project involves safety-critical data and the FAA has concurred with your Statement of Work (SOW).

Click Change Target Operational Date. A calendar pops up. Select a date.

The system automatically adjusts the dates based on the next publishing AIRAC cycle. Note some dates may have already passed, so may be flagged in red.

· FPO Deadline is the day by which the Flight Procedures Office (FPO) can assess the impact of the new project. System will inform the FPO office via email so that they can acknowledge the deadline proposed by the airport sponsor

· NGS Deadline is the day the National Geodetic Survey (NGS) can verify the location information. System will inform the NGS office via email so that they can acknowledge the deadline proposed by the airport sponsor

· NFDC Deadline is the date the National Flight Data Center (NFDC) is notified of the change.System will inform the NFDC office via email so that they can acknowledge the deadline proposed by the airport sponsor

· Proposed Operational Date is the day the project becomes usable. For example, the actual day a new runway extension opens for landings.

· AIRAC Publication Date is the day the Aeronautical Information Regulation And Control (AIRAC) information becomes available. This is either 28 days or 56 days, depending on the cycle. Users can then update their flight management systems (FMS).

You can adjust your proposed operational date by clicking on Change Target Operational Date. If you haven’t chosen a date for your project, the system notes “not yet set”.
