Evaluating Electric Aviation's Environmental Benefits

GA Airports face a beneficial at the same time potentially costly decisions to support electric aircraft at their airports in the next 2-4 years. This project will equip airports with rigorous guidance to understand the environmental benefits of electric aviation for airports to evaluate when they start to consider investing in electric charging infrastructure.

Effective practices for monitoring and managing tree growth off the airport.

Conduct research into cost effective strategies for periodic monitoring of airspace surfaces such as TERPS 20:1 surfaces to ensure they remain clear of obstructions. Particularly at smaller rural airports that may not have staff, zoning, or significant infrastructure that would otherwise make these issues easier to manage.

A framework for Airport Evacuation: Assessment of Landside Capacity Using Micro-Meso Simulation Model

Safe and rapid evacuation of passengers from an airport to a vantage locations is critical in the aftermath of an emergency event, which includes acts of terrorism, fire, earthquakes, tornado outbreak, power outrage, or bomb threat. Based on the severity of the crisis situation it may not be enough to evacuate the passengers from the airport, but also to make a safe passage from the airport to their final or intermediate... more »
