New FAA Focus Areas

The FAA has stood up a number of new programs over the last several years.  In this session, planners will have a better understanding of each of them and will be able to implement them into new planning programs as well any projects that are ongoing.  The first program is the Runway Incursion Mitigation Program, or RIM program.  This is the newest program and planners will hear lessons learned from planners that have been participating in the RIM process.  Also on the safety front, planners will hear about the Safety Risk Management process that is required for many airfield and airport planning projects.  This program is not as new but the lessons are still being learned and the scope of it is expected to grow.
