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

This 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 these impacts. Actual 1972 airport operations, and anticipated 1985 airport operations are examined. Four advanced technology development alternatives were identified for the mid to late 1980's time frame. A detailed airport configuration plan was derived for the development alternatives which had the highest potential passenger capacity.
