This book has been rewritten in its fourth edition to continue to serve as a basic text for courses in airport planning and design. In the past it has been of value as reference to airport designers, planners, and administrators worldwide as well as to con sultants in airport infrastructure development. The fourth edition is a complete update of the third edition, published in 1992, taking into account major revisions to Federal Aviation Adminstration (FAA), International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), and International Air Transport Association (IATA) standards and recommended practices. Furthermore, the revisions reflect the experiences of the authors in teaching, consulting, and research in this field. The authors have teaching experience in postgraduate and post-experience courses throughout the world and extensive consultancy experience, having in the last 20 years participated in the planning and design of many airports around the world, both large and small.
This fourth edition of Airport Engineering appears 18 years after its predecessor and in the interim very big and far-reaching changes have occurred in civil aviation. Security has been dramatically and irrecoverably tightened throughout the world, espe cially in the United States, since the 9/11 terrorist atrocities in the northeastern United States in 2001. Passenger facilitation has been revolutionized with the introduction of almost universal electronic ticketing and check-in procedures. The introduction of the A380 aircraft into service has heralded the arrival of what had, up to then, been termed the New Large Aircraft. The information technology (IT) revolution had profound influ ence on air travel and the air transport industry. The widespread usage of the Internet has also permitted the rapid and broad publication of standards and recommended practices by the FAA and other regulatory bodies. The nature of civil aviation itself has changed with the evolution and proliferation of the low-cost carriers and growth of this market. Moreover, air freight has grown considerably and now has a significant proportion of its traffic carried by the door-to-door service of the integrated carriers. The general availability of desktop computers and low-cost software allows designers and operators to use computerized techniques [e.g., modeling, simulation, and geographic information system (GIS)] more widely and effectively as a day-to-day tool of airport design and operation. In the area of the environmental impact of aviation, the aircraft of the twenty-first century are an order-of-magnitude quieter than their predecessors: The importance of noise impact has decreased as the industry faces increased scrutiny and regulation in areas of water and air pollution, carbon footprint, renewable energy, and sustainable development. In this edition, the authors have addressed these changes and have restructured the shape of the text to reflect conditions as they are a decade into the twenty-first century
