High costs and the use of unprecedented construction technology may render the traditional methods of financing airports inadequate. Three factors must be taken into consideration in selection a financing mechanism: ownership policy; funding level: and design complexity. Financing of the cost and an unorthodox location introduce the need for unconventinal financing methods. The most promising of these has as its keystone the creation of a fund to which all interested airport developers could contribute and which would be used to guarantee bonds issued by those developers for the construction of their airports. The integrity of the fund would in turn be guaranteed by the Federal Government.
