This research seeks to capture the extent to which airports are facing the need for and engaging in organizational redesign across the industry and how airports can address the cultural challenges and impacts from redesign on their workforce. It will focus on identifying and providing airports with resources that are crucial to creating agile, innovative, and inclusive organizations for the future of air travel.
This research will study the concept of 'induced demand' for general aviation airports and provide a comprehensive guidance of this phenomenon, specifically for airports.
Cancelation of flights should be an independent airport decision rather than waiting for the government
Using FEMA emergency management core capabilities and CDC's public health preparedness capabilities as models, this ACRP proposed project will help airports across the country expand existing emergency management programs through the development of industry specific capabilities and metrics for increasing resiliency, preparedness, recovery, planning, and more.
The airport industry is very dynamic, due to changes in technology, regulations, and travel behavior. Recognizing this, ACRP has developed a process for systematically reviewing its research products to identify those in need of update. This proposed project would fund a review of ACRP's Policy & Planning products and conduct research to update those most in need of it.
The "touchless journey" results in significant changes that have been long-coming, but is now on an accelerated path resulting from the pandemic. Depending on the nature of the individual, new (especially technology) solutions bring both satisfaction and fear - all of which bring out a growing need for research and guidance on cultural and social behavioral shifts.
Research is recommended to see how to better capture benefits stemming from proposed projects when conducting BCAs for GA airports.
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.
The purpose of this research is to support the airport industry in building a pipeline of talent that will result in skilled, long-tenured airport employees. This will be accomplished through a focus on recruitment and hiring practices that improve awareness of the industry, increase the number of interested and qualified applicants, and focus on increasing diversity and inclusion within the workforce pipeline.
Interstate certification regulations at 49 CFR Part 26.85 intend to reduce the burdens for DBEs to be certified in multiple states. However, the wide differences in implementation among certifiers and the multiplying effect of complying with information requests may actually result in an increased burden; impacting DBE resources and opportunities and USDOT recipients' attainment.
