The CASP was first introduced in 1989 when codified in California Public Utilities Code section 21702 but has not kept pace with California transportation planning. Likewise, FAA Advisory Circular 150/5070-7, The Airport System Planning Process, has evolved without an updated approach in California. The purpose for updating the CASP is to better align aviation planning from the perspectives of both the FAA and the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) to positively demonstrate that aviation is an integral part of California’s multimodal transportation system.

Future Meetings

An upcoming public comment period will include online sessions; plans and dates are in progress.
