  1. South Grand Lake Regional Airport Runway Celebration – Director Ardies (Information Only)

Director Ardies reported that the South Grand Lake Regional Airport began as a grass strip runway in 2006, and through grassroots efforts and partnerships, including the partnership with the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission, the airport has completed many projects and improvements. The runway is now paved and has been widened to 75 feet, and it features new lighting. Senator Inhofe was the keynote speaker for the South Grand Lake Regional Airport Runway Celebration on April 9, 2021. Speaker McCall and local Senators and Representatives attended, and Oklahoma Secretary of Transportation Tim Gatz served as emcee. Director Ardies thanked the Department of Transportation staff and other community partners who helped produce this event.

 

  1. LEGISLATIVE, CONGRESSIONAL AND REGULATORY UPDATE — Director Ardies and Sandra Shelton, Communications and Government Affairs Coordinator (Information Only)

Sandra Shelton reported that Senate Bill 893, related to the Engineer Tax Credits clean-up language, was still pending as of this Commission meeting. Senator Pugh, Senator Rader, Senator Rosino, Senator Simpson, Senator Kirt, and Senator Hicks were working to sign the bill out of conference; afterwards, it would need to be considered by the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Senate Bill 659, the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Development Act (UAS Clearinghouse Bill) passed the House and Senate and was signed by Governor Stitt on May 5, 2021, and becomes effective November 1, 2021.

House Bill 1376 allows the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission to use the bidding system that the Oklahoma Department of Transportation (ODOT) uses; it was signed by Governor Stitt on April 21 and becomes effective November 1, 2021.

Ms. Shelton reported that the bill to remove the cap on the amount of revenue the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission receives from aircraft excise taxes was dormant. Director Ardies reported that he spoke with Chairman Thompson about the cap on aircraft excise tax and the importance of additional investment in the Oklahoma Airport System, and that the Aeronautics Commission intend to pursue lifting the cap on aircraft excise tax during the next legislative session.

Director Ardies thanked Senator Rosino and Representative Hilbert for their work on the UAS Clearinghouse Bill, which makes the OAC a coalescing force and organization for the next big UAS policy or test site initiative. He also explained that HB 1376 allows the OAC to use ODOT’s bidding system rather than the bidding system through the Oklahoma Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES); since ODOT works with highways and pavement projects, many of the contractors, skills, and expertise would be logical to use for airport projects, and made pursuing use of the ODOT bidding system logical as well. Director Ardies thanked Speaker McCall for use of a shell bill to build and move this legislation.

Director Ardies reported that on the Congressional level, Senator Inhofe has urged full funding for the Federal Aviation Administration Section 625 Aviation and Aerospace Workforce Development grant program. Discussions have continued at Capitol Hill regarding contract tower funding and regulatory fixes, as well. Director Ardies mentioned three relief bills that have been passed and contain aid for Airports: the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act (CRRSSA), and the American Rescue Plan. Director Ardies has encouraged Oklahoma airports to utilize CARES Act funding; the CRRSSA funds are in the grant application and offer stage; and the American Rescue Plan funds were expected to enter the grant application phase within a few months. Director Ardies reported that OAC staff are tracking Congressional discussions of a potential infrastructure package, too.

Director Ardies thanked Paula Kedy for her extensive outreach efforts in support of aerospace and aviation education. Paula Kedy reported that she has visited many school superintendents across the state about the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission Aerospace and Aviation Education Grant Program and the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) High School Curriculum program. This school year, 16 Oklahoma schools implemented the AOPA High School Curriculum; 15 of them offered the pilot pathway curriculum and 1 offered the UAS pathway curriculum. In the 2021-2022 school year, 33 high schools in Oklahoma will be teaching the AOPA high school curriculum. AOPA offers the curriculum through an application window beginning in November and closing in May. Ms. Kedy reported that she set a goal of reaching 50 high schools in the next 18 months in OAC’s recent application for the FAA 625 grant. She thanked Superintendent Mike Anderson and District STEM Coordinator Chris Eckler of Ada City Schools for inviting other school administrators to visit or speak with them about the AOPA curriculum program and tips on how to set up an aviation lab.

She also thanked Senator Roger Thompson and Senator Paula Rosino for including her in a successful economic development event in Okemah that involved CareerTech, the Aerospace Commerce Economic Services (ACES) team, local educational officials, and many others. Ms. Kedy also reported that she and Director Ardies have been meeting with the Oklahoma State Department of Education about the possibility of offering the AOPA curriculum for core subject area credit rather than elective credit. Finally, Ms. Kedy noted that the closing period for the OAC Aerospace and Aviation Education Grant Program application window for this year’s cycle was May 31, 2021, and that grants would be brought before the Commission at a future meeting.

14.      System Plan Update – Nick Young (Information Only)

Mr. Young reported that the Oklahoma Airport System Plan is in full swing; Jviation serves as the prime consultant on the project and is working with Lochner and Marr Arnold. The System Plan recommendations help guide the Aeronautics Commission in developing the Airport Construction Program to ensure a balanced and viable airport system that is economically sustainable and is up-to-date according to the latest FAA standards. Data will be used to create a searchable GIS database, as well, that will be integrated with the airport pavement management system and will also result in reports on each airport regarding safety, efficiency, accessibility, economic support, and user services. The last comprehensive System Plan update was in 1999; this update will ensure that OAC is acting on valid data going forward. This project is expected to carry through the end of 2021 through February of 2022.

Mr. Young reported that April 30, 2021, was the first of a series of webinars to update and engage Oklahoma airport stakeholders in the planning process; the second webinar was expected to be scheduled for mid-June 2021.
