Sec. 151.87 - Lighting and electrical work:
(c) The number of runways that are
eligible for lighting is the same as the number eligible for paving under
§151.77, §151.79, or §151.80.
(d) The installing of high intensity
runway edge lighting is eligible on a designated instrument landing runway
and any other runway with approved straight-in approach procedures. A
runway that is eligible for lighting, but does not meet the requirements
for 75 percent U.S. participation under §151.43(d), is eligible for 50
percent U.S. participation in the costs of high intensity runway edge
lighting (or the allowable percentage in §151.43(c) for public land
States), if the airport is served by a navigational aid that will allow
using instrument approach procedures. If a runway is not eligible for 75
or 50 percent Federal participation in high intensity runway edge lighting
but is otherwise eligible for runway lighting, the U.S. share of the cost
of runway edge lighting is 50 percent of the cost of the lighting
installed but not more than 50 percent of the cost of medium intensity
(e) In-runway lighting (touchdown zone
lighting system, and centerline lighting system) is eligible on the
designated instrument landing runway.
(f) Taxiways to eligible runways on
airports served by transport aircraft are eligible for lighting. On
airports serving only general aviation, the lighting of connecting
taxiways is eligible if the runway served is lighted or is programed to be
lighted. The lighting of a parallel taxiway is eligible if the taxiway is
eligible for paving. Lighting of other taxiways is eligible or not,
depending on the complexity of the taxiway system.
(g) Floodlighting of aprons is eligible
if there is a proven need for it, including a showing of night operations
where the runway is lighted.
(h) Any airport that is eligible to
participate in the costs of runway lighting is eligible for the installing
of an airport beacon, lighted wind indicator, obstruction lights, lighting
control equipment, and other components of basic airport lighting,
including separate transformer vaults and connection to the nearest
available power source.
(i) The interconnection of two or more
power sources on an airport property, the providing of second sources of
power, and the installing of standby engine generators of reasonable
capacity, are eligible under the program.
(j) Economy approach lighting aids are
eligible for inclusion in a project at an airport that will not qualify
within the next three years for approach lighting aids installed by FAA
under the Facilities and Equipment Program if the economy approach
lighting aids --
(1) Will correct a visual deficiency on
one of the lighted runways of the airport; or
(2) Will permit operations at an airport
at lower minimums.
"Economy approach lighting aids"
includes a medium intensity approach lighting system (MALS) that may
include a sequence flasher (SF); a runway end identifier lights system (REILS):
and an abbreviated visual approach slope indicator (AVASI).
(k) Appendix F of this part sets forth
typical eligible and ineligible items of airport lighting covered by
§151.86 and this section. (Secs. 307, 606, 72 Stat. 749,
