AIRPORTS AND AIRWAYS SYSTEM PLANNING

THE IMPACT OF RECENT FEDERAL LEGISLATION ON AIRPORT AND AIRWAY SYSTEM PLANNING IS EVALUATED, AND THE CURRENT STATE OF THE ART OF SUCH PLANNING IS REVIEWED. THE AIRPORT AND AIRWAY DEVELOPMENT ACT OF 1970 IS SHOWN TO HAVE A FUNDAMENTAL EFFECT ON AVIATION SYSTEM PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT. THE TRANSITION TO SYSTEMS PLANNING IS NOT EXPECTED TO BE EASY. AVIATION PLANNING AGENCIES MUST BECOME FAMILIAR WITH THE TECHNIQUES OF SYSTEMS PLANNING AND PLAN THEIR PROGRAMS IN HARMONY WITH PREVAILING BUDGET AND SCHEDULE REQUIREMENTS. RELATIONSHIPS MUST BE ESTABLISHED BY FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL AGENCIES WITH THE AVIATION INDUSTRY AND THE PUBLIC. AS EXAMPLES OF CURRENT STATE AIRPORT SYSTEM PLANNING, THE SOUTH DAKOTA STATE AIRPORT SYSTEM PLAN AND THE CALIFORNIA STATEWIDE MASTER PLAN OF AVIATION ARE DISCUSSED. /IAA/
