U.S. Department of Transportation Federal Aviation Administration Advisory Circular Subject: RUNWAY LENGTH REQUIREMENTS FOR AIRPORT DESIGN Date: 7/1/2005 Initiated by: AAS-100 AC No: 150/5325-4B Change: 1. PURPOSE. This Advisory Circular (AC) provides guidelines for airport designers and planners to determine recommended runway lengths for new runways or extensions to existing runways. 2. CANCELLATION. This AC cancels AC 150/5325-4A. 3. APPLICATION. The standards and guidelines contained in this AC are recommended by the Federal Aviation Administration strictly for use in the design of civil airports. The guidelines, the airplane performance data curves and tables, and the referenced airplane manufacturer manuals are not to be used as a substitute for flight planning calculations as required by airplane operating rules. For airport projects receiving Federal funding, the use of this AC is mandatory. David L. Bennett Director, Office of Airport Safety and Standards
