PUBLIC POLICY TOWARD AVIATION--A REGIONAL PLAN FOR AIRPORT FACILITIES AND ACCESSIBILITY

The Tristate Region plan determines which system of air carrier commuter service airports are required to serve the scheduled aviation needs and goals of this region through the year 1995 and the proper role of each airport in the system. The plan recommends the general nature and timing of the development necessary to meet the objectives of the plan as well as estimates of its costs. Specific recommendations are made regarding issues directly related to aviation such as type of service to be received by an airport, and the nature of the facilities required to accommodate it. The plan thus developed serves as a framework for airport master planning, providing overall direction for detailed airport planning and project development priorities. Where the highway and mass transit planning processes are involved in aviation, the need is stated and proposals are advanced for consideration in the regional ground transportation plan. This report discusses the need for an aviation plan, and outlines the organization of the planning effort. The present system and expected traffic growth are discussed, and the goals, objectives, criteria and issues are stated. Capacity versus demand is considered, and alternative approaches are discussed.
