Title Progress Report: Reaching the Airport Community with the Information It Needs.

Abstract The airport industry today is dynamic and characterized by perpetual threats and opportunities. The combination of economic shocks, high fuel prices, air carrier mergers, and industry consolidations has brought significant change to the commercial airline industry and general aviation. From an industry standpoint, these factors have resulted in a shift from historically predictable traffic and passenger levels (and the reliable revenue streams to support them) to an industry characterized by economic threat and uncertainty. In this environment, many small commercial service and general aviation airports have experienced severe losses in service, even as other airports have found themselves dealing with capacity constraints and congestion. Todays airport practitioners need easy access to the tools and information that will help them to manage these and other challenges and ensure that their airports are consistently operating safely and efficiently. The Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) is uniquely positioned to meet the vital need for such resources and provide the airport community with unbiased, proven solutions.
