IMPACTS OF POTENTIAL 1980'S AVIATION TECHNOLOGY ON THE CAPACITY OF AN EXISTING AIRPORT. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The study was conducted to determine the impacts which potential 1980's advances in aviation technology might have on the capacity and surrounding environment of a high-density air carrier airport. New York's La Guardia Airport was chosen to illustrate the general nature of these impacts in a specific airport situation. Actual 1972 airport operations, and 1985 airport operations as currently anticipated by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, were also examined. Four advanced technology development alternatives were identified for the mid to late 1980's time frame. The operational, environmental, and cost impacts were determined for each development alternative and for the Port Authority's plans for 1985. These findings were compared to the actual situation in 1972. A detailed airport configuration plan was derived for the development alternatives which had the highest potential capacity. The companion to this document, the Technical Report, contains a detailed description of this study and its findings.
