A Service Operator Model (SOM) is a business model for airports to consider adopting which is a change for most U.S. airports from a landlord management approach to a more collaborative business approach by managing all of the functional areas of the passenger journey. The Guidance will describe initial steps such as developing the business model that fits your airport.

Airfield electrical systems are inherently dangerous; therefore, special training is required to maintain safely.
Small airports—that is, general aviation, non-hub, and small hub airports—can benefit significantly by integrating standard business planning with all aspects of resiliency planning.
Update the report to provide airports with the latest regulatory requirements, best practices, case studies, etc. for improving environmental management at small airports.
The data in the original report and supporting the tool is from 1990-2000, and airports need guidance and information based on the latest climate data to accurately assess risk and plan mitigation strategies. This research update idea was developed as part of project ACRP 11-02/39, Environmental Products Update and is one of the priorities identified by the research team and through industry outreach.

This research would help airport practitioners understand the peer-to-peer car sharing market and its potential impacts on facilities, operations, and revenue.
Develop a guidebook that would assist airports and other aviation analysts become familiar with the different sources of data that are available to support analyses and forecasts of air passenger travel. Provide guidance on which types of data are appropriate for use in a given study, understand the strengths and limitations of the different potential data sources, and estimate the likely costs involved in their use.
