This comprehensive program will discuss everything airfield electrical - and is a must attend for both beginners to airfield electrical and those experienced wanting to learn about the latest trends and broaden their knowledge.
10:30 am -12:00 pm ET Section 1, Airfield Lighting: History, Certification, and Current Trends in Technology - This section will go over a brief history of the industry and where it started. We will then talk about the materials being used today and the process used to provide a “Certified” FAA lighting fixture. We will then move into the bulk of the information as we discuss current trends in airfield lighting and how that affects future projects. We will look at Incandescent vs LED trending technology, FAA Rules on switching an airport to LED, FAA rules on Arctic kits, Trends in CCR technology, and trends for the design of an Airfield Lighting Control System.
12:00 – 12:15 p.m. – 15-Minute Break
12:15 - 1:30 pm ET Section 2, Design Requirements: Navigating, Understanding and Applying Airfield Ground Lighting Design Standards - This section will journey into the FAA AC 150-5340-30 Design and Installation of Details for Airports Visual Aids. We will discuss basic design elements of individual lights, their meaning, layout and special conditions and how they make up the airfield ground lighting system of the airport. We will cover other systems including approach aids, stand-by power and fixture mounting bases from design to installation. Finally, we will touch on what to do when field conditions do not reflect design standards in the AC.
1:30 – 2:00 p.m. – 30-Minute Break
2:00 - 3:15 pm ET Section 3, Installation: Procurement and installation of Airfield Lighting Equipment – In this session we will briefly discuss the procurement process of airfield lighting equipment. We will then discuss construction phasing and how installation of fixtures and foundations in turf, asphalt and concrete pavements differ. From there, we will cover the installation process of airfield lighting cable and associated cable connectors. Ultimately, ending with the testing of the airfield lighting and the lightning protection systems.
3:15 - 3:30 p.m. - 15-Minute Break
3:30-5PM ET Section 4, Airfield Maintenance: Keeping it all working - In this section we will discuss preventive maintenance, including fixture maintenance, bolt torqueing, photometrics and Part 139 requirements. We will discuss the process of accessing a site of a broken fixture, from notification, lock-out/tag-out procedures, and set up/take down. We will touch on weather work conditions, allowable light outages, and scheduling of equipment replacement. Finally, we will bring together the airfield electrical experience from the pilot’s seat.
