Aircraft Characteristic Database

The objective of this research is to create a guidebook of Aircraft Characteristics. The first step is a synthesis that summarizes the data sources available for determining Aircraft Characteristics for airport planning, design, construction, and operation. The characteristics would include at a minimum Aircraft Approach Category (AAC), Airplane Design Group (ADG), Taxiway Design Group (TDG), wingspan, tail height, length,... more »

The Emerging Threat of PFOS Contamination at Airports

Airports have for decades been managing and remediating contamination of soil and groundwater resulting from past practices. However, within the past two years airports have been surprised by a previously unrecognized environmental threat from a family of compounds found in firefighting foam known as perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS). A synthesis study to provide necessary education on the subject is proposed. It is... more »

Using NEXRAD weather surveillance network to forecast movements of migratory birds impacting safety at US airports

More than 14,000 wildlife strikes were reported to the Federal Aviation Administration in 2017. Globally, wildlife strikes have killed more than 287 people and destroyed over 263 aircraft from 1988 through November 2018 (Dolbeer and Begier. 2019). To warn pilots of potential wildlife hazards, airports often include generic language in the Automated Terminal Information System (ATIS) or Notices to Airmen (NOTAM) that does... more »

General Aviation Airports and Resilience: Complete Toolkits for Self-Directed Planning

The 2,455 General Aviation Airports in the U.S. provide essential services that are uniquely available through this type of airport. A Resilience Management Plan, although expensive to contract and complicated to create, may be critical to protecting the continuity of these services. This research project provides operators with the tools necessary to effectively and efficiently develop their own Resilience Management... more »

Effective Task Saturation Interventions to Improve Airport Employee Performance

The objective of this research is to improve airport employee performance under conditions of task saturation. While task saturation is listed as a top 10 safety concern, there is little to no evidence that there are interventions in place to mitigate its impact on human performance. This research will produce an intervention (training, tool, etc.) that will be made available to airports nationwide for their use. The... more »
