Airports throughout the world must be managed and operated. Air traffic control is just one component of operating an airport. There are numerous other elements including daily inspection of the airport for safety hazards, response to emergencies, management and oversight of airfield construction projects, response to security incidents and security patrol, airfield surveillance to identify tenants, planning for future development, community relations, revenue management, landside, terminal and airside operations, tenants and airline personnel conducting unsafe operations and enforcement of the rules just to name a few. Essentially, airport operations and management personnel ensure the overall day-to-day, safe, secure and efficient operation of the airport.
The Airport Management Training Field Manuals series delivers a range of books for individuals entering or already within the airport management industry. They are written by experienced authors who are subject-matter experts in their fields and well-respected in industry. Rather than strategic board or regulatory level perspectives, these books provide a point of view from the tactical field level and maintain a narrow focus on airport management topics – as they are rather than how they should be – to keep them directly relevant to busy practitioners and learning professionals. Writing is personable and relatable, featuring case studies and lessons learned, along with immediately applicable procedures that can improve the practitioner’s level of knowledge, efficiencies and effectiveness.
