National Airspace System: Regional Airport Planing Could Help Address Congestion If Plans Were Integrated with FAA and Airport Decision Making
DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 75 pages
This is a print on demand edition of a hard to find publication. The national airspace system will become increasingly congested over time, imposing costs of delay on passengers and regions. While transforming the current air-traffic control system to the Next Generation Air Transport. System may provide additional en route capacity, many airports will still face constraints at their runways and terminals. This report evaluated regional airport planning (RAP) in metro regions with congested airports. The report: (1) identified which airports are currently or will be significantly congested and the potential benefits of RAP; (2) assessed how regions with congested airports use RAP in decision making; and (3) identified factors that hinder or aid in the development and implementation of RAP. Charts and tables.
