The Airport Master Plan Overview: The Purpose of the Master Plan is to determine the extent, type and schedule of development needed to accommodate future aviation demand.

The Master Plan is predominately funded by the FAA, with matching funds from the State of Colorado and the local airport enterprise fund. Longmont Airport is not a tax-funded operation; user fees and leases fund the airport.

Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):LMO_MPP Board.jpg

Master Plan Process: we are presently through the Facility Requirements and first Community Meeting sections of the Master Plan Update.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):Inventory.jpg

Airport Inventory: the inventory describes the existing condition and operational levels of the airport, such as takeoffs and landings, based aircraft and available landing areas and aircraft usable space.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):Forecast.jpg

Master Plan Forecast: the FAA requires that the forecast be realistic, based on latest available data, reflect conditions at the airport and provide justification for planning and development.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):LMO IFR Flights.jpg

Instrument Flight Rules Flight Tracks from Longmont Airport to different parts of the country.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):LMO_Noise Abatement.jpg

Airport Noise Abatement Procedures: these are voluntary procedures which encourage pilots operating out of LMO to use certain power settings, climb rates and departure headings to help reduce aircraft noise.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):Compatible Land Use.jpg

Compatible Land Use Chart: the chart reflects the 65 DNL (day/night average) noise footprint of LMO. The FAA does not presently fund noise mitigation measures for property outside of the 65 DNL corridor.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):Airspace.jpg

Airspace Chart: this chart shows the standard approach and departure pathways from LMO (known as Victor Airways – like highways in the sky). Class B airspace is controlled by the Terminal Radar Approach Control Facility at Denver International Airport.  Arrival gates are checkpoints in the sky where aircraft move into DIA's airspace.

The parachute operating area is delineated in a letter of agreement between Mile High Skydiving and the FAA.

Representatives from the FAA and the Colorado Division of Aeronautics were on-hand.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):Environmental Categories.jpg

Environmental Categories: this charts addresses potential environmental impacts that may have to be considered during various airport development projects.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):airport reference codes.jpg

Airport Reference Codes: the ARC is a coding system used by the FAA that relates to the airports' design criteria. It reflects the size and speed of a category of aircraft that the airport is designed to accommodate. LMO is currently rated as B-II, which are aircraft with an approach speed between 91-120 kts, and a wingspan between 49-78 feet. Nothing in the Master Plan reflects a change to the ARC – which means there is not a plan to expand the airport to reflect larger categories of aircraft.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):runway extension alternatives.jpg

Runway Extension Alternatives: this chart shows the various runway extension alternatives. Note the green-yellow-red line along the right side, denoting difficulty levels in accomplishing certain extensions.

The "speedometers" note the percentage of B-II category aircraft in the General Aviation fleet the airport can accommodate without operational restrictions, such as reduced fuel, cargo or passenger loads.

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:jeffprice:Documents:Leading Edge Strategies:Longmont_Jviation:LMO Easels (we used):facility req.jpg

Facility Requirements: improvements are either recommended or required per the FAA Design Guidance:

RPZ: Runway Protection Zone, an area of airspace that protects pilots and individuals on the ground during the final phase of flight.

VASI: Visual Approach Slope Indicator, a navigational aid that helps pilots fly a particular glide path into the airport.

TSA: Taxiway Safety Area

TOFA: Taxiway Object Free Area

PAPI: Precision Approach Path Indicator, another navigational aid that helps pilots stay on a particular glide path – it is more precise than the VASI.

SRE: Snow Removal Equipment
