From the Inside Flap:

Air transportation is experiencing extraordinary growth, outstripping the capacity of the airport and air traffic control systems and increasing congestion and delay. The consequences for the air transport industry and the traveling public are greater inconvenience, higher costs, declining quality of service, and concerns about diminished safety. Today, more than ever, airport planning and engineering figure critically in successfully raising the overall quality and safety of air travel. In its revised Third Edition, Airport Engineering, the basic text for airport planning and design, reflects the latest FAA, ICAO, and IATA recommendations and guidelines, mirroring the changing climate of air travel in the 1990s. 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. In clear methodical style, the book describes the practical basics of:

  • The structure and organization of air transport
  • Forecasting of air transport demand, using both traditional and new methods
  • Characteristics of aircraft as they affect airports
  • Airport master planning
  • Air traffic control, lighting, and signing
  • Airport capacity and configuration
  • Geometric design of the airside
  • Passenger terminal
  • Air cargo facilities
  • Airport drainage and pavement design
  • Airport access
  • Requirements of V/STOL systems
  • Environmental impact of airports
This expanded Third Edition contains two entirely new chapters on airport systems planning and design for safety. Significant new material has been added to the chapters dealing with demand, passenger and cargo terminals and access. The chapter on V/STOL facilities has been rewritten to reflect the most current thinking on airside design requirements for tiltrotor aircraft. Comprehensive and meticulously detailed, Airport Engineering, Third Edition is the single most informative guide to mastering the state of the art in airport engineering and design.
