THE ELEMENTS OF PLANNING NECESSARY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A MAJOR CIVIL AIRPORT, WITH DISCUSSION

ESSENTIAL PLANNING DATA REQUIRED FOR THE PREPARATION OF A COMPREHENSIVE AND GRAPHIC MASTER PLAN OF DEVELOPMENT FOR A MAJOR CIVIL AIRPORT ARE DISCUSSED. INFORMATION GATHERING AND PROCESSING METHODS ARE DESCRIBED FOR CONDUCTING FORECASTS OF AVIATION DEMAND, FORECASTS OF AIRCRAFT MOVEMENTS, ESTIMATES OF AIRPORT EARNING CAPABILITY VS COSTS, FORECASTS OF GROSS REVENUES AND EXPENSES, AND EVALUATIONS OF AIRPORT PRICING POLICIES. EXPERIENCE GAINED WITH THE PLANNING OF THE HOUSTON INTERCONTINENTAL AIRPORT IS REVIEWED TO ILLUSTRATE PRACTICAL COUNTERMEASURES FOR SPECIFIC DEVELOPMENT PROBLEMS. /IAA/
