Aviation Planning and Operations Committee

Purpose:

To address issues dealing with (1) the planning and design of airport runways, taxiways, aprons, terminals, ground transportation facilities, and support facilities (excepting airfield pavement design) and (2) the safe, secure and efficient operation of these facilities. The Committee's purpose is to advance the art and science of civil engineering by: (1) promoting the civil engineer's leading role in the planning and design of airports and associated ground transportation facilities, (2) fostering education and research in airport design and operations to improve the civil engineer's analytical and design capabilities, (3) promoting state of the art methods of analysis - including fast-time and real-time simulation - to address planning, security, environmental, and operational issues facing airport operators, national and state aviation agencies, airport users, and the traveling public, (4) promoting advances in the field of airport planning and design by civil engineering, (5) working with other technical divisions of the Society demonstrated in the relationship between their concerns and airport planning and development.
