Planners Take Flight: Integrating Air Transportation into Planning Education

Air transportation is a mode of transportation that provides planning students an arena in which to tackle wicked, cross-specialization planning challenges that span geographies from local to global. A synthesis of syllabi and instructor surveys of thirty-seven graduate planning programs found that nine programs cover air transportation in a partial or full lecture in their introductory transportation planning courses and less than half mention it briefly. I provide linkages between air transportation planning and the most commonly covered planning topics so that professors of transportation planning—and possibly other specializations—can use these linkages to enrich topics in existing courses.
