Comprehensive Asset Management Plan
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
What is the Comprehensive Asset Management Plan (CAMP)?
CAMP will be a guide for managing and developing future facilities (like roadways and aircraft aprons) at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (PHX).
Why prepare this Plan?
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) requires airports to maintain long-range plans for airport development so that airports make cost-effective facility and land-use decisions that reflect local goals for the airport.
What are the main products of the CAMP?
- Airport long-range goals
- Inventory of existing airport conditions and performance
- Forecast of commercial-service and air-cargo demand
- Analysis of future development alternatives
- Recommended 20-year development plan (known as “Airport Layout Plan”)
- Project implementation and financial strategy
Is another runway being considered or planned?
No. Additional runways are not being considered as the airport does not expect to have any airfield capacity constraints over the long-term.
Will the CAMP address the noise problems from the flight path changes?
Unfortunately, only the FAA can make flight path changes, so the CAMP project cannot directly address this issue.
If not runways and flight paths, what will be the primary focus of the CAMP?
The following map identifies some of the key planning areas for the CAMP.
How much will the CAMP cost and who is paying for the CAMP?
The cost of preparing the CAMP is approximately $3.5 million, the majority of which is funded by an FAA planning grant.
How can I get involved?
- Visit the Reports Page on the project website to review work products and provide feedback.
- Attend the various planned public workshops. Workshop schedules are posted in the Updates section.
- To request a meeting with the project team, specific information, or a presentation at your community group or association meeting, or engage in another way, please contact those listed on the Project Contact Information.
What is the timeframe for this project?
The overall project takes approximately 18 months to complete, culminating with final plan submittal to the FAA.
Why doesn’t PHX already have a CAMP?
The last airport long-range plan was completed in 2010. While many aspects of that planning effort are still relevant or being implemented, the FAA requires airport to update its plans every 7-10 years.
What are the CAMP stakeholder committees?
In addition to the project website, public workshops, and other general opportunities to provide input on and monitor the CAMP project; formal committees will be established to guide the policy and technical aspects of the plan’s development.
