Join us for an in-depth discussion on constructing Concrete Airport Runways, Taxiways & Aprons. Learn about the many airport paving challenges that require a higher level of expertise to achieve successful concrete pavement outcomes. Discover how the often misunderstood FAA Section 50 specification addresses the control of work, authority of the engineer, and engineering judgment to resolve problems. And get valuable tips on paving 19+” thick concrete, paving in extreme weather, and solving quality issues before they become major problems.

With expertise in commercial, secondary, and general aviation airfield facilities, Gary Mitchell, P.E., Chief of Engineering & Construction at the American Concrete Pavement Association (ACPA), serves as the primary industry liaison to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), as well as the primary technical contact for design, construction, materials, and rehabilitation topics related to airfield facilities. Mitchell is also a liaison to the FAA’s Research, Engineering, & Development Advisory Committee (REDAC), a Congressionally-mandated advisory committee that provides advice and recommendations to the FAA Administrator.

Building military runways and taxiways while U.S. Air Force fighter jets take off and land just yards away, often under extreme environmental conditions, and occasionally on remote Pacific island air bases, has given Southwest Concrete Paving Company Vice President Dave Rath a truly unique perspective on constructing airfield concrete pavement – and some really good stories. Project work includes Travis Air Force Base, NAS Lemoore, Kirtland AFB, MCAS Miramar, Edwards AFB, Minot AFB, Wake Island, and U.S. Government airfield paving projects in California, Arizona, Nevada, Utah, Colorado, and New Mexico.

If you’re a construction professional, engineer, or involved in infrastructure projects, join us and expand your knowledge of the use of concrete pavements for airfields.
