An analysis of recent airport environmental planning practices shows that they have been fundamentally misdirected. Emphasis on the preparation and review of Environmental Impact Statements by governmental agencies with narrow aviation perspectives has resulted in widespread litigation and controversy.

A systematic definition for the term "environment" serves as the basis for such an approach.
