Abstract:

This study reviews the minimum level of crash fire suppression service required by Federal Aviation Regulation FAR Part 139 and compares the required minimum with the recommended level for Index A, AA and B airports. It outlines the economic impact of the present airport index threshold criteria. It presents a discussion of the expected hazard, the population base, and the operational base as factors affecting the level of crash, fire and rescue CFR services required at airports and as factors affecting the airports ability to support that level of CFR service. Conclusions are presented relative to the feasibility of fulfilling the following objectives 1 Enhance the overall safety of airport operations at all Index A and AA airports without incurring increased operation and maintenance costs 2 Minimize the increase in the operation and maintenance costs of CFR services presently being experienced by airport ownersoperators when transitioning from Index AA to Index B certification and 3 Reduce the operations and maintenance costs of CFR services currently being provided at small Index B airports while maintaining or enhancing the present level of safety.
