Extend the findings of previous ACRP research on the variation in air travel propensity to account for a wider range of household characteristics and different subsets of the populations. Develop models and other tools to allow the airport industry to use these findings to better anticipate future changes in air travel demand and air passenger characteristics.
Development of a microgrid standard framework (Technical, Financial, Regulatory, Permitting) solution which can apply to all airports across the country. Due to the complexity of the airports' operation and numbers of stakeholders and decision-makers, this comprehensive solution has not been developed.
Determine uniform certification standards in DBE/ACDEBE certification programs between airports and other local entities to ensure a smooth process and better understanding of the requirements.
Stipends are used in competitive bids to encourage bidders to submit their best ideas in a procurement. Better understanding of the use and value of stipends would be useful to airport management, boards and policymakers to determine if compensating losing bidders for their intellectual property would advance practice and improve design and project delivery.
Examination of airports that are tracking and reporting sustainability metrics and whether their insurance rates, insurance payouts, or options for access to capital are different from those of airports that do not track and report these metrics
Guidance for general aviation airports completing socioeconomic impact studies.
