LAX West Aircraft
Maintenance Area Project (proposed Project)
The intent of the proposed LAX West Aircraft Maintenance Area Project (proposed
Project) is to consolidate, relocate, and modernize existing aircraft
maintenance facilities at LAX, consistent with the LAX Master Plan.
The proposed Project would allow for more efficient and effective
maintenance of existing aircraft at the airport, including Aircraft Design Group
(ADG) VI aircraft (Airbus A380s and Boeing 747-8s). The proposed Project would include
aircraft parking and maintenance facilities, employee
parking areas, and related storage, equipment and facilities. The proposed
Project would be able to accommodate up to 10 ADG VI aircraft simultaneously or
a mix of smaller aircraft on the site.
Specifically, the proposed Project would include:
Approximately 29 acres of aircraft apron for ADG VI aircraft as well as smaller
aircraft that may require Remain Over Night (RON) and Remain All-Day
(RAD) parking, or those aircraft being serviced at the current aircraft
Aircraft maintenance hangar(s), capable of accommodating a wide range of existing
aircraft up to and including existing ADG VI aircraft, as well as a maintenance
shop and supporting office space within the hangar;
Up to 300 employee parking spaces;
Ancillary facilities (e.g., ground service equipment (GSE) storage and
maintenance areas/facilities; aircraft wash racks; RON/RAD kits providing ground
power, GSE charging stations, potable water, and pre-conditioned air; a wash rack for aircraft washing operations; necessary utilities and
infrastructure; and possibly water storage tank(s) for fire protection);
A storm water detention/infiltration basin and connections to existing
adjacent storm drains;
A temporary concrete batch plant and rock crusher would be installed on the site for construction of the
proposed Project with removal planned after the final phase of construction
(concrete batch plants are permitted on and have been operating on the site in
recent years); and,
Extension of Taxiway B and Taxiway C (as Taxilane C) to provide ingress and egress to and from the Project area.
Existing contractor staging yards and associated
equipment on the Project site
would be phased out or relocated to existing LAX staging areas, such as those located to the south of
Westchester Parkway and west of Lincoln Boulevard. Stockpiled materials (consisting of
soil and construction rubble) currently existing within and
immediately adjacent to the Project site would be re-used on-site as backfill
material and/or exported for off-site reuse and/or disposal.
It should be noted that the proposed
Project would not increase passenger or gate capacity and would not increase
flights and/or aircraft operations at LAX compared to the existing airfield conditions.
