With the rapid growth of commercial air travel in the 1970s, the FAA recognized that the nation’s airports contributed significantly to the national economy and international commerce, as well as being a critical mode of transport for the public. Airports needed funding to improve safety and maintain airport infrastructure such as runways, taxiways, NAVAIDS, and land acquisition. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) formed the National Airport System Plan (NASP) to ensure these significant airports received Federal grants to make these improvements. The FAA revised the NASP with the Airport and Airway Improvement Act of 1982 and called the National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) to reflect the further expansion.

This report is based on several assumptions drawn from the facts outline in the Logan case. First, we will assume that Logan airport operates 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Furthermore, it is assumed that the processing system is a single-phase service process, which means that each server (runway) performs the same set of activities on one customer (aircraft) at a time. Each aircraft is processed in the first come first serve (FCFS) order. Since 90%
Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack, airport security has received considerable attention from the government as well expect in the aviation industry. The damages that transpired following the attack have remained fresh in the minds of peace loving citizens. In fact, security has become everybody’s business because a security lapse in the aviation industry paralyzes various sector of the economy. Today, the government has encouraged redesigning of the airport with much consideration given to security. The new concerns in the wake of 9/11 terrorist attack propose integration of security into airport design and planning. Although the airports may not accommodate redesigning of the general layout, critics agree that an
His aim was to become a professional pilot for the airlines. Upon completing his first degree, he lost interest in making a living out of flying due to the recession, which shrank the positions of pilots. As a result, he got magnetized in airport and infrastructure. Subsequently, he pursued an MPA at SIU focusing on Aviation Administration. He also utilized the lucrative graduate assistantships that SIU offered at that time. Obtaining graduate assistantship in 2010 assisted him to work under Dr. NewMyer in collaboration with the Federal Aviation Administration Airport Safety Data (5010) program. He got a chance to conduct a research for the Transportation Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences in both undergraduate and graduate school. Influenced and mentored by his instructors and professors, he learned that public entities control, manage, and sponsor most US airports and their infrastructure. Therefore, the MPA in Aviation Administration became the perfect fit for his career. These public airports necessitate or prefer high level managers with MPA qualifications, unlike the private sector, which mostly requires a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA). Obtaining an MPA degree paved his way to occupy the position of Airport Manager.
Airports are the heart of travel for many to conveniently travel from one location to another, whether the distance was 50 miles or internationally. With the advancements in technology, it has provided the ability for individuals to have access to parts of the world that once only been available to a select few. With such technological advances, our society will not be able to rewind back to
Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport has been deemed the busiest airport in the world for the past 17 years straight (Mutzabaugh, 2015). One huge aspect of having such consistent success over the years has been the airport’s ability to maintain a safe and secure working environment. This is particularly important on the airside of the airport where aircrafts are continually turning, burning, and finding their place among the many gates of the terminal. More specifically, the ramp at KATL is a complex stretch of concrete where aircraft, flight
The National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) forever changed the way airports were classified when it was unveiled in 1982 (Wells, 2011). The aviation industry had grown significantly since deregulation went into effect, and a new system needed to be put in place that would distinguish airports with incredible growth and expansion from those that served niche markets or flight training (Wells). Under the NPIAS, airports were broken down into three major categories: commercial services airports, reliever airports, and general aviation airports (Wells). The following paragraphs describe the three categories of airports that were created by the NPIAS, and conclude with an airport that fits into that particular category today.

Target was founded by George Draper Dayton in 1902. He was born in New York and wanted to explore the markets growing in the Midwest. Because of this, he purchased land in Minneapolis and began Dayton Dry Goods Company, which became what we know today as Target. Dayton’s principals are the foundation for many of Target Corporation’s values to this day. Dayton’s store soon became synonymous with reliability and fair business practices. After Dayton’s death in 1938, he passed his business along to his son, who grew the Dayton Company into a nationwide retailer. In 1911 the company was renamed as The Dayton Company because it better reflected the variety of products and services that the company offers. In 1916 The Dayton Company became a founding

America on September 11, 2001 required that we reform our nation’s aviation security system in fundamental ways. Three years after the Sept. 11 tragedies, how far has airport and airlines come? It depends on the source. While it is important for airports to heighten security after the attacks of 9/11, the policies of profiling passengers are inadequate and a necessitate revision.
My goal for attending college as a Musical Theatre major is a very simple, but lofty. For years, I have dreamed of becoming a professional theatre performer and one day starring on Broadway. When I tell people this dream, they smile, nod their head, and politely say, “well, isn’t that nice.” I am realistic and understand the odds are against me, but that only makes me work harder on my craft. My hope is that a Musical Theatre program like the one at Carnegie Mellon can help make this dream a reality.
I wish to be selected as a MAC REP for number of reasons. Firstly, next year will be my last year at Sir John. A Macdonald, hence as a proud black scot, I’m very willing to contribute my time and effort to the school. Although I’ve been participating in many school events, I feel I can provide more support by to the school being a MAC REP, and helping out with events that need students who are organized and responsible. Moreover, I want to encourage more students to become a truly black scot with high school sprits, which can be accomplished through helping out with events like “moving on up”, “parent teacher interview”, or “parent teacher night”. I firmly believe that by presenting a friendly and appropriate student image to parents and other
