The overall responsibility for pedestrian and vehicle operations on the airport rests with the Department of Aviation for the City of Pueblo. In accordance with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Federal Aviation Regulation Part 139 (Sec. 139.329) mandates that all Airport Operators, under this part, ensure that each person who has access to the Air Operations Area (AOA) be familiar with the Airport’s pedestrian and vehicle operating procedures.

To ensure the highest levels of safety and security for the common welfare of the general public in a post 9/11 world, Pueblo Memorial Airport has established standard operating procedures in accordance with the Code of Federal Regulations as required by the FAA and Transportation Security Administration (TSA). The Airport has established these procedures in an effort to improve the safety for all users at PUB. It is important to remember, especially if you have never worked at or had access to an airport, that safety for yourself and of others must be everyone’s primary concern. One act of carelessness or one mistake could result in injuries or fatalities.

To assist us in creating a safe environment for everybody, read this manual and make

certain that before you operate a ground vehicle or otherwise access the AOA, you:

 Are aware of the layout and how the Airport operates.

 Know what the signs, markings, and lighting represents.

 Know the types of hazards that exist and how to avoid them.

 Know the policies, laws, and regulations that may affect you.

Requirements to Access or Drive on the AOA:

No person shall access or operate a motor vehicle on the AOA unless such operation is required for aviation related activity or otherwise authorized by the Department of Aviation. AOA access badges are provided by the Department. Other requirements


1. Proof of current Drivers License;

2. Proof of employment or necessity for access to AOA;

3. Proof of insurance against personal injury and property damage in an amount acceptable to the Department of Aviation;

5. Vehicle must be in safe operating condition;

-1Personal vehicles are limited to general aviation ramps or tenant ramp areas as designated by the Department of Aviation; and

7. Commercial vehicles must be properly identified on both sides with the company name or logo displayed.


Conduct a vehicle inspection for safety defects prior to driving the vehicle or accepting responsibility for it. Ultimately, the vehicle will be the driver’s responsibility if you choose to operate it. No person shall operate any equipment on the AOA unless the equipment is in a fully operable condition and is equipped with the appropriate safety


• All motor vehicles shall be equipped with proper headlights for the vehicle driven and one or more tail and brake lights of such brilliance to ensure safety.

All headlights, taillights, and overhead flashing lights (for driving on the movement area) shall be lit between sunset and sunrise, during inclement weather, when in poorly lit areas, and/or during low visibility conditions.

• All baggage and cargo carts shall be equipped with reflectors of fluorescent taped material on the front, rear, and sides of the cart; and shall be of the color and size as approved by the Department of Aviation.

• Windows and mirrors of motor vehicles shall be free of cracks, discoloration, or any other defect that may cause distortion or obstruction of the vision of the operator.

Components of an Airport:

Taxiway A defined path established for the taxiing of aircraft from one part of an airport to another. Taxiways are identified by letters. Taxiway markings are yellow; the edge lights are blue.

Runway A defined rectangular surface on an airport prepared or suitable for the landing or takeoff of aircraft. Runway markings are white; the edge lights are also white (on instrument runways, the last 2000 feet on each end have yellow/amber lights to warn pilots the runway end is near).

Runways are identified by their compass direction and are numbered to the nearest ten (10) degrees of their magnetic heading; i.e.: Runway 26 would be aiming west or 260 degrees, the other end must be aiming east or 90 degrees (Runway 8).

At PUB, there are six (6) runways on which an aircraft can land. PUB Runways include: 8L, 8R, 26L, 26R, 17, and 35. Runway 8R-26L is a precision instrument;

Runway 17-35 is non-precision instrument; and Runway 8L-26R is a basic General Aviation (GA) runway open equipped with medium intensity runway lighting (MIRL).

Safety Areas A defined surface surrounding a runway or taxiway designed to reduce the risk of damage to airplanes in the event of an undershoot, overshoot, or excursion from the runway. These areas require clearing of objects, except for objects that need to be located in the area because of their function. The following safety areas have been

established at PUB:

Runway Safety Area 8R-26L Extending 250 feet from either side of the centerline and 1000 feet beyond both runway ends 8L-26R Extending 75 feet from either side of the centerline and 300 feet beyond both runway ends 17-35 Extending 250 feet from either side of the centerline and 1000 feet beyond both runway ends


Ramps and Aprons are defined surfaces where aircraft taxi and park. At PUB, ramps and aprons are part of the non-movement area, thus vehicles are permitted to traverse these areas without Tower clearance.

-3The AOA:

Air Operations Area (AOA) – a portion of the airport designed and used for the landing, takeoff, and maneuvering of aircraft. At PUB, that is basically all the land within the perimeter fenceline. Remember, the primary concern while operating on the AOA is always ‘SAFETY’.

The AOA is divided into two areas: The Non-Movement and the Movement Areas.

Section I Non-Movement Area The non-movement area of an airport basically consists of loading ramps, aprons, and perimeter roadways. You are not required to communicate with the Air Traffic Control Tower (ATCT) while operating in this area; however you are obligated to exercise good judgment and travel safely at all times.

1. Motor vehicles operating on the ramps and aprons shall not be driven in excess of 10 mph, and should reduce the speed within fifty (50) feet of an aircraft.

2. No person or driver of a motor vehicle, other than the operator of an aircraft servicing vehicle for that aircraft, shall pass within twenty (20) feet of a parked aircraft unless you are traveling on a marked roadway. Marked or designated roadways should be used whenever possible.

3. No person or driver of a motor vehicle shall travel between an aircraft and its loading gate during enplaning/deplaning of passengers.

4. No person shall enter or exit a vehicle gate without ensuring the gate properly secures prior to proceeding. If a gate cannot be properly secured, or if an electronic gate does not properly close, the driver must contact Airport Operations at (719) 320-2710 for assistance. The driver must remain at the gate until properly relieved by authorized airport personnel.

5. No person or driver of a motor vehicle shall enter or operate:

a) Beyond the hold-bars of an active runway; this area is a designated runway safety area and should not be penetrated without first having clearance to proceed from the ATCT (see Safety Area dimensions); or

b) Within seventy-five (75) feet of the centerline of an active taxiway without first having clearance to proceed from the ATCT.

• Pedestrians and vehicles yield the right of way to aircraft and emergency vehicles at all times.

* When operating behind or adjacent to aircraft parked on the ramp, make certain that the aircraft is not preparing to move or be moved. Signs that an aircraft is

ready to move include:

-4 There are no support vehicles or refueling vehicles close to or connected to the aircraft.

 The portable stairs have been removed from the aircraft. Aircraft wing walkers, marshallers, and/or tug drivers are in position.

 Aircraft lighting systems (beacons/wingtip lights) have been illuminated.

 The wheel chocks have been removed.

 Aircraft doors and outer hatches are closed and sealed.

 Aircraft engines are powered up and/or propellers are rotating.

Smoking Policy:

Smoking on the Airport premises is limited to those areas clearly designated as Smoking Areas by appropriate signage and/or ash cans. No person shall smoke or carry lighted cigars, cigarettes, pipes, matches, or any open flame within fifty (50) feet of any: (a) facility where fuel is stored; (b) buildings/hangars where aircraft are stored; (c) aircraft;

(d) hazardous materials spill; or (e) building or area where smoking is prohibited.

Smoking on aircraft servicing ramps is prohibited at all times.

Foreign Object Debris (FOD):

Basically, FOD is any debris such as trash, rocks, aircraft parts, etc. in the AOA that may cause damage to an aircraft or injure someone. Such loose items may be ingested by an aircraft engine and cause serious damage to its components. FOD may also become a projectile that can injure anyone nearby or cause significant damage to property. FOD causes the aviation industry over $60 million annually. You can help make the Airport a

safer place by following these simple rules:

 Put all your trash in a designated covered container.

 Pick-up any FOD lying on the ground.

 Continuously scan the surrounding area for anything that can easily puncture a tire.

 Avoid tracking mud and rocks onto the pavement surfaces.

Escorting Procedures:

No person shall drive any vehicle or equipment onto the AOA if the vehicle does not meet the vehicle requirements as determined by the Department of Aviation, unless an escort is provided. The escort is an authorized person that must utilize a vehicle that has satisfied the established vehicle requirements, if a vehicle is required for escort. The authorized escort will assume responsibility for the control of the escortee and will be accountable for the actions of its escortee. Therefore, constant guidance must be maintained for safety and security assurance; and at all times, both the escort and escortee will maintain an appropriate viewable distance from each other. Individuals possessing Airport badges with escort privileges (depicted as “E” on the front of the badge) may escort up to five (5) other individuals and/or vehicles.

-5Unauthorized Vehicles / Suspicious Persons:

If unauthorized vehicles or suspicious persons are observed on the AOA, the violator(s) must be immediately intercepted and escorted from the AOA. Never put yourself in harms way. If you are unable or unwilling to approach the vehicle or person(s), please contact the Department of Aviation at (719) 320-2710 to report the observation.

Dependent on the nature of the incident, appropriate disciplinary action will be taken which may include a fine and/or imprisonment. Operating on the AOA is not a right, it is a privilege. The Department of Aviation reserves the right to suspend or revoke driving and/or access privileges.

All vehicles operating on the AOA are subject to the fines and penalties imposed by the City of Pueblo Police Department and/or the FAA/TSA.

Accident Reporting Procedures:

Any person operating a motor vehicle on the AOA which is involved in an accident

resulting in injury to person(s) or damage to property shall:

 Immediately stop the vehicle at the scene of the accident;

 Notify the Department of Aviation and the City of Pueblo Police Department;

 Return to and remain at the scene of the accident and complete any required accident reports.

Section II Movement Area The Airport’s movement area is delineated from the non-movement area with a ground surface paint marking consisting of a solid yellow line and a dashed yellow line. Always hold short of the solid line and DO NOT PROCEED until authorized by the Tower. The movement area consists of runways, taxiways, and other areas of an airport which are used for taxiing, takeoff and landing of aircraft, exclusive of loading ramps and aprons.
