Airport Planning & Management is an excellent reference for any student of airport management or aviation.
The book details just about every facet of how an airport is run. From airport site selection to runway design and everything in between, Airport Planning & Management just about covers it all.
The chapters are all well written and extremely well organized. Any aviation enthusiast who is interested in how airports are run will find this a valuable reference.

12 of 14 people found the following review helpful By Kevin Killian HALL OF FAME on August 22, 2005
Format: Paperback
Like many young men, and I daresay women, I was drawn to airport management after exposure to Burt Lamcaster's sterling portrayal of a harried airport manager in the Ross Hunter classic AIRPORT. Lancaster showed us that a man could handle a million problems all at once, if he had the right combination of grit and gray cells. It wasn't only the glamor, it was the idea of helping people get through their day--even when the people in question were six or seven miles up in the air--that made me consider airport management as a major at school.

Other factors prevented me from achieving my goal, but I continue to pick up textbooks and manuals to keep abreast of the way airports have changed over the last 35 years. From a technical point of view, one of the best resources for the lay manager is the Alexander Wells book AIRPORT PLANNING & MANAGEMENT (AP & MANAGEMENT) co-authored with Seth Young, both of them prominent in the field--and the airfield--today. This book brings you thoroughly up to date on the way the skies (and the terminals) have changed since the day of infamy, 9/11. Their information is laid out with dispatch, not a wasted word between them. In addition, they know their stuff, that's for sure. Over five hundred pages and I could detect only a few minor inaccuracies.

If you were assigned to develop your own airport in some understaffed part of the world, this would be the volume you would bring with you. If you were limited to bringing one textbook with you. Of course, the old joke among airport planning students is, what CD would you bring? Why, Briano Eno's MUSIC FOR AIRPORTS of course.

Format: Paperback
As an aviation professor, I wanted a book that offered a comprehensive but relatively basic overview to the many aspects of airport management. Airport Planning & Management is an easy read and its format makes it easy to refer back to areas of the book for review. It has a good balance of charts, diagrams, and graphics. It is a great book for students that want a well-rounded understanding of airports and their operations. It is also a great book for anyone who just want to know how airports work!

Good Afternoon All,
This is an outstanding book to give you a foundation if you decide to have a career in airport management. Having a book like this is a big help in knowing what to expect if you're giving the chance to run an airport. Like a mayor of a city, governor of a state you'll be back countless decisions to make sure things go right, and knowing you've got stakeholders and shareholders who need to know what's going on.
If you need a book to make sure your heading in the right direction for being a airport manager, then this is the book for you.
