PFC Working Group

The PFC Working Group was established early this year to develop industry input to help enhance the PFC program. The Working Group reviewed the PFC program assessment for the last round of FAA Reauthorization taking place in 2006. The goals established at that time still appear relevant for this go-around:

  • Increase the PFC rate ceiling of $4.50,
  • Eliminate the eligibility distinction between $3.0, $4.5 and any higher future level,
  • Move to an “Impose, Report and Review” process,
  • Update the PFC program to make PFC revenue work more like conventional airport capital, and
  • Maximize PFC capacity to leverage investment capital for needed projects.

During the Working Group meeting in Portland, members discussed their concerns over the existing PFC program. The Working Group will continue to gather input from members.
