Course Synopsis


Designed for both the novice airport planner and the experienced professionals, this course addresses the traditional subjects such as forecasting, planning various components of the airport system, as well as the structure and purpose of an airport master plan and placing this into the context of greater regional planning.

In addition to the more conventional aspects, we delve into more contemporary elements such airport organizational structures, private vs public ownership and operation, revenue optimization, etc. We cover important subjects like modern forms of security and where this is headed, based on technology and the importance of commercialization of airports. We also address new technologies in general, and their impacts.
