The uberization of business aviation In Reserve

New technologies continue to arise regarding the ability to coordinate for the shared use of smaller business aircraft, in turn creating increasing pressure to provide such services to the general public, in turn creating significant conflicts between just what is – and what is not – permitted under 14 C.F.R. Part 91. Additionally, eVTOL aircraft are rapidly under development and moving to the demonstration stage, creating... more »

Staffing Composition for Airports: What We Need to Survive and Thrive In Reserve

Many airports are facing very difficult futures, especially HUB airports, in light of COVID and other funding challenges. These airports will need to learn to "do more with less" and respond rapidly to the changes faced or risk losing their foothold. ACRP project 06-04 (Report 186) and current project ACRP 06-06 highlight the new job demands and technological changes already requiring a new business approach and skills... more »

Review and assessment of airport communicable disease screening technologies and innovations In Reserve

Medical technology companies are rolling out robots and drones to help fight it and provide services and care to those quarantined or practicing social distancing. The COVID-19 pandemic has fast-tracked the "testing" of robots and other technologies as officials seek out the most expedient and safe way to grapple with the outbreak and limit contamination and spread of the virus.

The aviation industry needs to assess... more »

Organizational Redesign: Will Your Changes Fly? In Reserve

It's a common refrain: Organizations work to reshape their workforce and organizational structure, transform their business model, or move in a new strategic direction. But a year after the launch, they still have not realized the anticipated benefits. As airports look to make dramatic and unanticipated changes in response to the COVID-19 virus, they will need practical guidance on how to make needed changes "stick."... more »

Construction Safety and Phasing Plans (CSPP): Best Practices In Reserve

The objective of this study would result in a guide of best practices and development of a checklist to assist airports in creating a CSPP. The study should poll airports, FAA inspectors, and consultants (responsible for writing CSPPs) from across the country to gain insight on their best practices for creating a CSPP. The poll should include respondents from each FAA region to take geographical differences into account.... more »

Airport Common Use Program Development Guidebook In Reserve

In 2010, the ACRP published Report 30: Reference Guide on Understanding Common Use at Airports. Since that time, the airport strategies for implementation of common use and the technological solutions have significantly changed. Today, there is a greater focus on the "seamless passenger journey", providing new common use options, introducing technology innovations, and adapting to new business models. The research proposed... more »

Modernizing Air Cargo Operations in U.S. Airports In Reserve

Air cargo is vital part of supply chain for many companies and cities. Air cargo carries about 35% contribution in value terms of the world's cargo, only 1% in volume, yet many airports, especially in the USA, still do not have modern technology such as Cargo Community Systems, material handling systems in warehouses, and airports designed to move cargo, including e-commerce cargo, at the same speed and efficiency as... more »
