The ASM database, Airport Sponsor Guide is available:

The California Department of Transportation Division of Aeronautics (Division) generates the California Aviation System Plan Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) every odd year. The CIP 2012-2021 was published in September 2011.  Our next CIP should be published in the summer of 2013.  This fall (October 2012), airport managers should prepare to receive an announcement regarding the CIP submittal process using the on line Airport Capital Improvement Plan (ACIP) form.  The State uses the same form as Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

Although airport managers are not required to submit the ACIP forms until fall 2012, they can submit new projects or modify current projects anytime in the Division AirportIQ System Manager (ASM) database. A website link and password is assigned to each airport. Thank you.

Capital Improvement Plan (CIP)

Your next 2014-2023 ACIP should be added by the airport manager directly to the ASM database. This database can be found at Please check the contact information for your airport to make sure they are updated. If any contact changes need to be made, please contact the Division staff.  We encourage you to coordinate with your local transportation planning agencies in determination of your projects.

The FAA and the Division are updating the CIP for California airports.  To receive State funding, projects must be included in the CIP.  In an effort to improve the ACIP/CIP process, the Division is working closely with the FAA. 

Airport sponsors are requested to follow the instructions provided below.  The instructions will assist airport sponsors in completing the ACIP form online.  The Division will provide each airport sponsor with a login user name and password to access the ASM database.  Please enter your project information and print a hard copy.  Send the original signed ACIP form to the Division at the address below. If your airport has received a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) airport improvement program grant, please remember to send a signed copy to FAA.

Please submit projects for fiscal years 2014 - 2023 (10 years).  Describe each project as clearly as possible and enclose a short narrative.  If you have no projects for any particular year, please do not enter that year into the database.  Funding decisions and priorities will be based solely on the information submitted.  The California Public Utilities Code related to the State Aeronautics Act specifies the CIP must be a 10-year projection.  Subdivision (f) of Section 21702 of the Public Utilities Code states,

“A 10-year capital improvement plan for each airport, based on each airport’s adopted master plan if the airport has a master plan, approved by the applicable transportation planning agency, and submitted to the Division for inclusion in the California Aviation System Plan.”

Please submit Airport Land Use Compatibility Plan (ALUCP) projects for fiscal years 2014 - 2023 (10 years).  An airport land use commission can receive State funding to prepare or update an ALUCP.  Cities, counties, and airport districts with general aviation, reliever, and commercial airports are eligible for State funding.

In order to compile the information on ground access, off airport property needs, please enter the projects in the ACIP data sheet separately.  Ground access projects are different than access road projects.  Off property ground access projects cannot be funded through FAA or the State Aeronautics Account funds.  Access Road projects are AIP eligible and will go with the rest of the projects.

The purpose of airport ground access projects is to optimize ground transportation to airports.  Airports are key assets to communities and regions, contributing to both the economy and the overall quality of life.  Thus, ground access to airports is perceived to be one of the most critical issues facing the aviation system.  This includes improved access as well as improved intermodal connections.
