FLIGHTLINE VEHICLE PARKING - NAVY AND MARINE CORPS
A13.1. Contents. Flightline vehicle parking areas are provided for parking of mobile station-assigned and
squadron-assigned vehicles and equipment. A fire and crash vehicle parking layout for Navy and Marine
Corps facilities is included in NAVFAC P-80, Facility Planning Factor Criteria for Navy and Marine
Corps Shore Installations. A parking layout for squadron equipment is found in MIL-HDBK-1028/1,
Aircraft Maintenance Facilities.
A13.2. Army and Air Force Criteria. This attachment does not apply to the Army and Air Force.
A13.3. Location. Select parking areas that permit optimum efficiency in the use of equipment. Locations
must conform to lateral safety clearance requirements for existing or planned airfield pavements. A typical
site plan is shown in Figure A13.1. NOTE: No vehicle will be parked, nor a parking shed erected that
would require an airfield safety waiver due to violation of required clearances.
A13.3.1. Area Required. Vehicle parking area requirements are shown in Table A13.1.
A13.3.2. Station-Assigned Vehicles. Provide parking areas adjacent to the aircraft fire and rescue
station for fire and rescue vehicles. Where the fire and rescue station location does not permit
immediate access to runways, a separate hardstand near the runway is required. Provide parking areas
for other station-assigned vehicles adjacent to the parking apron.
A13.3.3. Squadron-Assigned Vehicles. Provide parking areas adjacent to hangar access for mobile
electric power plants, oxygen trailers, utility jeeps, tow tractors, and other ground support equipment.
A13.3.4. Refueling Vehicles. Provide a central paved parking area for refueling trucks and trailers at
least 30 meters [100 feet] from the nearest edge of the aircraft parking apron, as discussed in NAVFAC
DM 22, Petroleum Fuel Facilities.
A13.4. Surfacing. Flightline parking areas will be paved with flexible or rigid pavement with selection
based on minimum construction cost. Surfaces will be graded to drain and will have no irregularities
greater than + 3 millimeters [0.125 inch] in 3 meters [10 feet] of rigid pavement and 6 millimeters [0.25
inches] in 3 meters [10 feet] for flexible pavement. Design pavements for vehicle parking areas to support
a 15,420 kilogram [34,000 pound] twin axle loading.
A13.5. Shelter. Where clearances permit, flightline vehicles may be housed in shelters as shown in
Figure A13.2. When climatic conditions require it, walls and doors may be added. A method of heating
emergency vehicle engines must be provided in those areas of extreme cold where engine starting is
difficult. Structural material will vary in accordance with local climatic conditions.
A13.6. Lighting. Flood lighting will be provided for security and to facilitate operation of the equipment.
Use low pressure sodium fixtures for energy conservation. Provide dusk to dawn lighting controls.
Additional information on flood lighting is found in MIL-HDBK 1004/1, Preliminary Design
