First published in 1979, Airport Engineering by Ashford and Wright, has become a classic textbook in the education of airport engineers and transportation planners. Over the past twenty years, construction of new airports in the US has waned as construction abroad boomed. This new edition of Airport Engineering will respond to this shift in the growth of airports globally, with a focus on the role of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), while still providing the best practices and tested fundamentals that have made the book successful for over 30 years.

The fully updated and revised classic on airport planning, design, and development
Air transportation is experiencing extraordinary growth, outstripping the capacity of airport and air traffic control systems, increasing congestion and delay, and creating inconvenience, cost hikes, and safety concerns for flyers. As the construction of new airports becomes more global, so too does the education, training, and employment of airport engineers, planners, and developers.
Airport Engineering is fully revised and updated to provide the most up-to-date engineering and design methods on the topic. Coverage includes drainage and pavement design, airside layout, landside access design, passenger and cargo facilities, and terminal design, as well as special coverage on airport master and system planning. This new edition:
Includes seven new chapters covering policy and regulations, economics, emergency planning, modeling and simulations, airport-design development process, and the future of the airport
Delivers new information on airspace planning and operations, and the development of multi-model airport terminals
Offers fresh insight on international standards by ICAO, in addition to existing coverage of FAA protocols
Is updated to account for changes to airport security and screening following the formation of the TSA in the United States following 9/11
Includes latest airport planning and management practices compiled in the TRB Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP)
Features a new support website that provides links to online resources and standards for easy reference, in addition to an instructor's manual with assignments and discussion questions
Drawing from literature published by the Federal Aviation Administration, as well as publications from other governmental agencies and various aircraft manufacturers, airline companies, and industry organizations, Airport Engineering is a comprehensive and convenient one-volume guide to the state of the art in airport planning and design.About the Author:
