10 Most Recent Reports from the Airports Cooperative Research Program
|Guidelines for Improving Airport Services for International Customers||October 21, 2016||
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report 161: Guidelines for Improving Airport Services for International Customers assists airport practitioners in implementing departure and arrival processes, passenger services, and wayfinding techniques for international travelers navigating through U.S. airports. The report covers processing international passengers from origin through gateway airports to their ultimate destination; identifies key elements of the international...
|Continuity of Operations Planning for Small Airports||October 13, 2016||
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 78: Continuity of Operations Planning for Small Airports compiles information about current continuity planning practices at airports of different types and sizes and determine how they can be effectively applied to smaller airports to maintain resilient operational and business capacity during a disruption, regardless of cause.
|Guidebook for Assessing Airport Lead Impacts||October 3, 2016||
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Research Report 162: Guidebook for Assessing Airport Lead Impacts explores two strategies that airport operators can potentially implement to minimize the impacts of lead emissions from piston-engine aircraft. The guidebook also provides a history of lead in aviation gasoline and EPA regulations. The strategies examine how the impact from lead emissions may be minimized. The report includes a...
|Pavement Maintenance Guidelines for General Aviation Airport Management||September 23, 2016||
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 159: Pavement Maintenance Guidelines for General Aviation Airport Management provides guidance to general aviation airport managers in determining
|Airport Sustainability Practices||September 14, 2016||
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 77: Airport Sustainability Practices compiles information about airport sustainability practices and adds them to the Sustainable Aviation Guidance Alliance (SAGA) website. The SAGA website was developed to assist airport operators in developing sustainability programs and provide guidance to those who have new data to input. The website contains entries on...
|Addressing Significant Weather Impacts on Airports: Quick Start Guide and Toolkit||September 1, 2016||
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 160: Addressing Significant Weather Impacts on Airports provides a web toolkit that raises airport operator awareness about vulnerabilities caused by significant weather events. The toolkit helps airports develop more robust contingency and recovery plans, in addition to their airport emergency plans. This toolkit focuses on events that are “...
|Deriving Benefits from Alternative Aircraft-Taxi Systems||August 25, 2016||
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 158: Deriving Benefits from Alternative Aircraft-Taxi Systems explores approaches that may reduce fuel use, emissions, and costs while aircraft are on the ground. This report explores how alternative approaches to taxiing aircraft in movement areas have the potential to provide an overall net benefit for both the airport and aircraft operator. These systems include, among other alternative systems, an electric motor permanently fixed...
|Helicopter Noise Information for Airports and Communities||August 19, 2016||
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 76: Helicopter Noise Information for Airports and Communities examines the results of a literature review and survey of ten airports to summarize the impact of outreach, helicopter noise management programs, technology, and abatement procedures in managing helicopter noise. The report is geared to assist both airports and communities with addressing helicopter noise and a description of the current state of effective practices for...
|Airport Advisories at Non-Towered Airports||August 15, 2016||
TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 75: Airport Advisories at Non-Towered Airports documents the manner in which non-towered airports provide advisories to pilots regarding winds, traffic, and runways in use. Unlike with pilot advisories, there is little guidance available for airport operators in providing airport advisories. The objective of this report is to aggregate available guidance on this topic and document information from non-towered airports with at least...
|Impact on Practice: Preparing the Next Generation of Airport Leaders||August 12, 2016||
TRB's Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) has released its latest Impacts on Practice that focuses on preparing the next generation of airport leaders. It explores how ACRP Report 75: Airport Leadership Development Program influenced a collaborative effort in Florida to develop a three-and-a-half day program to develop and train future leaders. Since its inception, 150 professionals from 40 different Florida airports have completed the program. The impact of the training is perhaps...
