ACC Declared Distances and Partially Closed Runways During Construction Live Webinar

Product not yet rated

Includes a Live Event on 06/16/2020 at 1:00 PM (EDT)

Airport construction projects often result in short-term disruptions to aircraft operations that can have a significant impact on airport stakeholders (e.g., FBOs, tenants, and transient users). However, these disruptions can often be minimized or mitigated with careful planning and coordination. One such mitigation measure is the use of declared distances during the construction project to maximize the length of runway available to users. 

This ACC webinar will provide an overview on the technical aspects for developing declared distances, including its basic terminology and meaning for pilots and how it differs from a partially closed runway. It will also cover best practices, assumed risks, and design engineer questions that should be considered when using declared distances and partially closed runways during construction. An example from a real project will also be shared with participants during the webinar. 


At the end of this ACC webinar, participants will be able to:

• Explain declared distances design standards.
• Identify the best practices in using declared distances during construction. 
• Summarize best practices when using partially closed runways during construction. 
• Recognize the risks associated with the use of declared distances and partially closed runways.
• Apply techniques to minimize stakeholder disruption during design of construction.

The registration fee for ACC live webinars is “per person.” The sharing of webinar log-in credentials to provide access to the webinar by non-registered/paid individuals is prohibited. Doing so will nullify the issuance of credits/hours for participating, as ACC cannot meet the required accreditation criteria to verify attendance or participation for the entire duration of the webinar with multiple log-ins under one name.


Eligible participants will earn 1.5 PDH or CM credits for this ACC webinar. Please refer to the "Accreditation Credits/Hours tab for more details on participant criteria to earn credits/hours and reporting of attendance by ACC.


Registration fee payments must be received when registering for the webinar.
