Description

The course is being offered in association with the National Center of Excellence for Aviation Operations Research (NEXTOR).

This week long course offers an overview of airport planning and design for those entering or wishing to become more familiar with the field, as well as an opportunity for those with more experience to expand their knowledge of specific topics. The course will give particular attention to the challenges and uncertainties involved in planning airport facilities in the current situation and the implications for planning airport facilities for the future environment during and after recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. The course is taught by some of the leading practitioners (and most experienced instructors) in the industry. In addition to covering the fundamentals of airport planning and design, the course discusses emerging issues and likely future trends facing airport planners, operators, and consultants in the US and around the world. The topics covered range from airport and airline economics and travel demand forecasting to airport capacity analysis, noise analysis, and environmental planning. Topics covered also include airfield design, passenger terminal planning, airport ground access, and air cargo facilities planning.
