The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) is an inventory of U.S. aviation infrastructure assets. It is developed and maintained by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Its purposes are: to identify all the airports in the U.S. There are 3,400 existing or proposed airports that are important to the national air transportation infrastructure and eligible for federal grants. The NPIAS includes budgets for the Airport Improvement Program or AIP to update airports to current design standards and to add capacity to congested airports. The NPIAS contains all commercial service airports, all reliever airports, and selected general aviation airports.
