Guidelines are presented for the advancement of all types of airports so that a design status can be achieved to meet minimum airport standards as required by the Federal Aviation Administration at sometime during their development process. Airport design criteria relating to wind analysis, runway length and capacity, and airspace are reviewed. Engineering design elements are detailed which relate to drainage, soil investigation, pavement thickness, bases, surface courses, testing, taxiways, aprons, turnarounds, and runway/taxiway marking. Support facilities are also covered. Governmental regulations are discussed with special reference to federal aviation, state and local requirements. Helicopter characteristics and heliport design considerations (site selection, heliports at airports, layout, approach-departure paths, obstruction clearances, helicopter parking, apron and support facilities) are also considered.
