The course is being offered in association with the National Center of Excellence for Aviation Operations Research. Click here for more information about the 2017 course. This four-day course covers the broad spectrum of airport planning and design issues within the evolving context of the air transportation industry. It provides an introduction to issues that arise in planning airport systems and the development of new and existing airports, as well as the design of airport facilities to handle both aircraft and passenger demand. These issues are examined in the context of recent trends in airline service, fuel costs, industry structure and evolving efforts to address climate change and sustainability. The course provides an opportunity to explore these issues with experts from different segments of the industry. The topics covered range from airport and airline economics and travel demand forecasting to airport capacity analysis, noise analysis, and environmental planning. Airfield design, passenger processing, and airport ground access are also discussed.
