This summary of the proceeding of the Conference on Airport Landside Capacity attempts to reflect as objectively as objectively as possible what each workshop considered or decided. Included also are positions taken in the general papers and the workshop resource paters. The views presented, therefore, are not necessarily those of the author or those of any one of the conference participants. On no issue was there a unanimous opinion, and on several issues there were strong minority views. The many points developed by the conference participants are here summarized and organized under 9 headings: definition of landside, capacity and the aviation system, capacity and level of service, peaking, multiple jurisdiction, balance, forecasting, financing, and federal aid. A final section comments on the conference research recommendations, which are included as the last chapter in this report.
