Course Description

Airports are fascinating organisms. While they provide the basis for the worldwide transportation system, they are like cities unto themselves. This course will take students behind the scenes of major airports: their development, their evolution, and how they operate today. The course covers how an airport is organized and managed; what services and functions are provided; some history of flight from balloons, to the Wright brothers, to super jumbo aircraft, to drones; plus some little-known functions such as emergency planning and response, wildlife management, aircraft recovery, snow and ice removal, and the NextGen air traffic control system. A tour of the Raleigh-Durham Airport is planned.  Lecture (plus Questions)Viewing VideosField Trip(s)
