Scope and Purpose.

This Air Force Instruction provides guidance for developing an airfield driving program to provide safe ground vehicle operations and pedestrian control on United States Air Force owned and/or operated airfields. It outlines training requirements for all personnel (i.e. military, Department of Defense Civilians, Contractors) who, as a part of their job, are required to drive on an airfield.

Personnel who operate a vehicle on the airfield need to be knowledgeable of and comply with the procedures outlined in this instruction and wing/base supplement.

In today's complex airfield environment, there are incidents involving aircraft, pedestrians, and ground vehicles at United States Air Force airfields that lead to property damage and personnel injury. Therefore, strict adherence to the procedures in this instruction is essential to preventing aircraft-vehicle mishaps and personnel injury on the airfield.

Shared-Use Airfields.

Airfield Management personnel at shared-use airfields (i.e. Air National Guard, Air Force Reserve units) should work with the civil airport manager to develop and implement an airfield driving program as applicable.

Contingency Locations.

Contingency is defined as a situation requiring military operations in response to natural disasters, terrorists, subversives, or as otherwise directed by appropriate authority to protect United States interests. At contingency locations, outside the United States, the senior airfield authority (SAA) is delegated authority to waive Tier 3 compliance requirements in this instruction to support tactical or combat operations/situations. Authority shall not be further delegated. (T-1). The SAA ensures the following actions are accomplish prior to waiver approval:

Conduct a risk management assessment with the rationale for the waiver and explain (1) how complying with the requirement/compliance item impacts mission accomplishment, OR (2) cost of compliance (training, funds, equipment, facilities, guidance or manpower) creates unacceptable risk to a higher priority task; OR (3) expected cost of compliance outweighs the benefit; OR (4) personnel cannot comply with the requirement due to a lack of resources (training, funds, equipment, facilities, guidance or manpower). NOTE: Waiver may be approved for a period not to exceed the requested waiver period or 30 calendar after the approving commander's deployment length, whichever is shorter. Because waivers are the expression of a specific commanders accepting risk, approved waivers automatically expire 30 days after a change unless new commander renews the waiver.

Forward proposed waivers to the Air Force Forces (AFFOR) staff or equivalent for an operational review if time permits, or at the discretion of the SAA.

Refer to Air Force Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (AFTTP) 3-4.4, Contingency Airfield Operations (CAO) for additional information. This AFTTP outlines how AFFOR open and operate a deployed or contingency airfield. This AFTTP volume also contains planning considerations for airfield management, air traffic control, and deployable air traffic control and landing systems (DATCALS) capabilities, procedures, forces, and equipment.
