Airport Management

AIRSIDE & AIRFIELD

-airport is a complex intermodal transportation facility: air, roads, rail, water (planes, cars, busses, boats, trucks, subways…) -airport provides air transportation services to people and cargo, and other services to aircraft like maintenance, fuel, catering, cleaning etc -remember the intense regulations? Airport related FAR’s: 71,73,75,77,91,93,95,97,99,101,103,105,150,155,157,161 -airspace designation, air traffic & operating rules, environmental rules, funding rules, and so forth -airports have two major operational components *airside includes the airfield and airspace *landside includes the terminal, ground access, parking (discussed in subsequent unit) -sound management requires thinking about the airfield as four dimensional: length, width, depth, and time

-airfield includes the runways, taxiways, holding aprons & parking areas & penalty box, gate apron/ramp, maintenance and run up apron, vehicle access roads, cargo ramp, separation/clear areas, facilities & equipment areas like navaids or lights or radar, ARFF station, deicing/snow removal, fueling, incinerator/garbage disposal, regional jet terminal & apron, bus stations

-some are Aircraft Movement Areas, some are Non-Movement Areas -rule-of-thumb: ATC controls aircraft movement areas, airport/airlines control non-movement areas -don’t be mislead, a lot of movement happens in “nonmovement” areas; accidents happen, undirected and uncontrolled movement can result in vehicle and aircraft collisions…quite costly in many ways

-let’s take a closer look at some of the airside operating components; remember, some of the practices and design elements are by way of the physics of flight, others are by way of FAA regulation (usually reflecting the physics part)

1. RUNWAYS: -pretty important to an airport, more so to an airplane -FAA regs on virtually everything about a runway from design to use e.g.-length, width, orientation, configuration of multiples, slope, thickness,

    Part 1a Statement 1: “The airport transfers passengers and freight between ground and air.” I agree with statement 1 as stated above. The airport is a facility or a ‘gateway’, which bridges passengers and freight from the ground to the aircraft, which brings them through the air. At the destination, another ‘gateway’ meets them, and bridges them from the air back to the ground. The “gateway” uses many other facilities and/or services to ensure a seamless transfer of passenger or freight between…

    the debate surrounding racial profiling in airports intensified. Many people believed that profiling was the best way to identify possible terrorists, but many others worried about violations of civil liberties. While some airports began to target passengers based solely on their Middle Eastern origins, others instituted random searches instead. Neither of these techniques seems likely to eliminate terrorism. Now, many experts in government and in airport security are recommending the use of a national…
