This comprehensive plan is based on an evaluation of Maryland's long-range aviation needs and alternative approaches to meeting those needs. The plan which will be the basis of future aviation expenditures, will also serve as a basis for monitoring aviation growth as part of the continuing multimodal planning process. The plan emphasizes improvement of existing faciliites. Expansion of several airports is envisioned and only 4 new facilities are included in the plan. The Plan foresees Baltimore-Washington International Airport as both the major facility serving Maryland and the primary airport to serve the overflow from Washington National Airport. Recommendations are made for commuter aviation improvements, emergency heliports, and a public heliport in Baltimore. Recommendations are also made for legislation to control buildings heights around airports, assist private airports and finance airport improvements. This Maryland Aviation System Plan is an integral part of the Maryland Preliminary Transportation Plan. This final report discusses aviation policies, general aviation, the 5 regions, interregional person transportation, commuter aviation, freight transportation and legislative recommendations.
