THE MOST PRACTICAL, COMPREHENSIVE GUIDE TO THE PLANNING, DESIGN, AND MANAGEMENT OF AIRPORTS--UPDATED BY LEADING PROFESSIONALS
"With the accelerated rate of change occurring throughout the aviation industry, this edition is a timely and very effective resource for ensuring both airport professionals and those interested in airports acquire a comprehensive understanding of the changes taking place, and how they impact airports and the communities they serve. A must read." -- James M. Crites, Executive Vice President of Operations, Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport
"Airport Systems has been a must read for my management team and my graduate students because of its outstanding comprehensiveness and clarity. Now further enhanced by an expanded treatment of both environmental and air carrier issues, it promises to retain its place as the foremost text in the airport planning, engineering and management field." -- Dr. Lloyd McCoomb, retired CEO Toronto-Pearson Airport, Chair of Canadian Air Transport Security Authority
"The chapter on Dynamic Strategic Planning should be required reading for every airport CEO and CFO. As de Neufville and Odoni emphasise, the aviation world is constantly changing and airport master planning must evolve to be more strategic and adaptable to ever changing conditions." -- Dr. Michael Tretheway, Chief Economist, InterVISTAS Consulting Group
