Airport Accident Analysis and Impacts to Safety Zones

Aviation accident data has limitations for establishing airport safety zones used to guide airport-vicinity land use decisions. Establishing uniform reporting criteria across responsible agencies will assist local jurisdictions to define safety zones and apply them to maintain airport viability.

Delivering Cost-Effective Training for Airfield Electricians for General Aviation and Other Small Airports

When a natural disaster or accident disrupts the airfield lighting and electrical system, the lack of staff or available local qualified airfield electricians may seriously delay the recovery of airfield operations. Airfield electrical systems are inherently dangerous; therefore, special training is required to maintain safely.

Catalyzing airport-based carbon solutions

Airport can support carbon reduction projects that support either aircraft fuel burn reduction or site-related emissions. This revenue could generate funding for airports and shift resources that are going to non-aviation carbon options.

Vegetation Height and Impacts on Deterring Small Birds on Airports

Vegetation and grass height is suggested to be between 7-14 inches on airports to deter small bird species; this concept has been tested in the past, with mixed results. I suggest a study should be conducted building on the previous publications keeping in mind new technologies and different grass management strategies to determine if current best management strategies are sufficient or may need to be updated.
