Our Vision: To be the nationally recognized voice for the public interest, states and territories on aviation and the national aviation system.


NASAO, was recently briefed on the latest iteration of the AIP Handbook by Nancy Williams in the FAA’s Airport Planning and Programming Office. Kim Stevens joined representatives from other aviation associations in the one-hour session at FAA headquarters. Changes and clarifications in the new Handbook were discussed. One change is with block grant closeouts. The previous handbook was silent on the topic. FAA policy requires timeliness in grant administration. This has now been extended to block grant states, allowing ADOs to close out or extend block grant state grants that are over 4 years old. Frank San Martin, Manager of Airport Planning and Programming stated in the meeting that the State Block Grant comments that we have all been waiting for, should be out within 30 days.
