ACC PCR – The FAA’s New Standard for Reporting Airfield Pavement Strength Live Webinar

5 (3 votes)

  • Registration Closed

This ACC webinar covers Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circular 150/5335-5D, Standardizing Method of Reporting Airport Pavement Strength – PCR, which was released on April 29, 2022, and requires all public use paved runways at all 14 CFR Part 139 certificated airports be assigned gross weight and PCR data by September 30, 2024. 

During the program, instructors will define both the Pavement Classification Rating (PCR) and Aircraft Classification Rating (ACR) and how the ACR-PCR methodology works. An FAA representative will discuss the driving forces behind the move from the ACN-PCN system to the new ACR-PCR system and the requirements for reporting pavement strength. The program will also cover the inputs that go into the determination of the PCR and using the ACR-PCR system to assess whether aircraft can or should operate at an airport or a certain facility. The methodology for determining PCRs uses an elastic layered approach within FAARFIELD, which will briefly be discussed. The interpretation of the results from FAARFIELD and selection of the PCR, along with how runway PCRs are reported in the Airport Master Record will also be presented. Finally, an example problem illustrating how to determine PCRs using FAARFIELD will be highlighted.


At the end of this ACC webinar, participants will be able to:
• Explain the reasons FAA switched from PCN to PCR for reporting airfield pavement strength. 
• Identify the mandatory and voluntary requirements for determining and reporting PCRs. 
• Describe the required inputs and process for determining PCR, as well as how to compare to ACRs to assess the ability of aircraft to operate safely and without causing excessive damage. 
• Recognize how to use FAARFIELD to determine PCRs.

Webinar Evaluation Survey
10 Questions
10 Questions Registered participants are required to complete the ACC webinar evaluation survey to earn 1.5 PDH credits for attendance. Evaluation surveys must be completed and submitted by 5:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, June 29 2022 for receiving credits. Please review the "License/Accreditation Credits" tab for details on reporting/receiving credits.


Participants are responsible for meeting all the following criteria to earn PDH credits for this webinar: 

• Be a paid and registered participant for this training; 

• Sign-in to the webinar no later than 12:55 p.m. EDT through your user account/dashboard in the ACC Training Hub; 

• Attend for the full 90-minute duration of the webinar (credits are not issued for partial attendance); and

• Complete/submit no later than 5:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday, June 29, 2022 the ACC evaluation survey.


ACC reports attendance and PDH credits for eligible participants directly to within 30 days of completion of this webinar. 

Participants will receive an automated email directly from RCEP/ACEC with notification of reporting of attendance/PDH credits by ACC. Participants can then log-in to their RCEP account and download/print a copy of their certificate of completion. 

If the participant does not have an existing account with RCEP, one is automatically created for them when ACC reports workshop attendance/PDH credits. The automated email sent to the participant from RCEP will include details on how to log-in to their new account, along with a temporary account password. 

NOTE: ACC does not have access to the RCEP account of any participant, nor information on account passwords. Participants will need to visit, enter their work email address in the log-in, and click "Forgot Password."


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