ACRP 10-26 generated a potentially unprecedented level of media and government interest in a TRB project including coverage in CNBC and a formal progress inquiry from Congress. Microgrids... more »
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.
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.
Aviation facilities are vulnerable to incidents on the electricity grid that expose them to power outage. Power outages create significant operational disruptions and they can last several hours (e.g., 2017 ATL 11-hr outage, 2020 Texas outage). Are they best practices (incl. micro-grid explored in ACRP Synthesis 91) that can help increasing power supply resiliency?
