Public-Sector Aviation Issues. Graduate Research Award Papers 1989-1990

The five papers in this issue are reports on research topics chosen by graduate students selected for awards from a nationwide competition under the fourth (1989-1990) Graduate Research Award Program on Public-Sector Aviation Issues. This program is sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration and administered by the Transportation Research Board. Its purpose is to stimulate thought, discussion, and research by those who may become the future managers and policy makers in aviation. The papers were presented at the 70th TRB Annual Meeting in January 1991. Specific topics addressed include: peak load congestion pricing of hub airport operations; U.S. cabotage policy; human orientation and wayfinding in airport passenger terminals; human error in aircraft accidents; and the relationship between financial health and maintenance cost structure of the U.S. airline industry.
