Course Description:
This two and a half day coursewill provide an overview of the planning, design, development and related management issues of modern airports as effective and efficient inter-modal transportation facilities.

Participants will be introduced to current trends in the air transportation industry as these impact on air travel demand and the requirement for airport facilities and services. Aviation demand forecasting techniques will be examined in detail, as will the distillation of these forecasts into meaningful plannng day and peak hour traffic estimates. Hands on experience with current faciltiy planning software will be provided. Optimization of facility resources (e.g. gate assignment) and an emphasis on ensuring flexibility in planning future airport facilities will make this course of interest to airport operations specialists as well as facility planners. A central focus of the course will be airfield (runways and taxiways) and terminal building design and requirements programming. While Canadian standards (e.g. TP 3132) will be used in all design examples and exercises, these are generally compatible with ICAO recommended practices and the analytic methods applicable elsewhere. Case studies will draw heavily on the Master Plan developed for the proposed Pickering Airport and the ongoing development programs at Toronto's Lester B. Pearson International Airport. The course will conclude with a look at the critical environmental issues facing airports, particularly noise, air and water pollution, and airport economics and finance (I.e. rates and charges) as these are impacted by facility development and operation. Throughout the course students will be made aware of key source materials for reference and follow on study.
