Eleven papers are presented which include material ranging from general background on decision-making in the airport planning process, through the specifics of terminal design and layout, and on to broader topics of how investment in the private sector is financed by an operating agency such as the Federal Ministry of Transport. Emphasis is placed on planning large international airports, but the problems are similar to those encountered with smaller airports. The following is a list of the papers: Decision Making in Airport Planning; Forecasting, Route Structure and Scheduling; The Control of Air Traffic Near Airports; Airport Locations and Terminal Systems; Runway Capacity; Noise and Airport Planning; Geometric Design; Airport Access and Parking; Passenger Terminal Planning and Design; STOL Air Transport Systems in Canada; Airport Financing in Canada.
