Airport engineering involves design
and construction of a wide variety of
facilities for the landing, takeoff,
movement on the ground, and parking
of aircraft; maintenance and repair of aircraft; fuel
storage; and handling of passengers, baggage, and
freight. Thus, at a typical airport, there are terminal
buildings and hangars; pavements for aircraft
runways, taxiways, and aprons; roads, bridges,
and tunnels for automobiles and walks for
pedestrians; automobile parking areas; drainage
structures; and underground storage tanks. Aircraft
include airplanes, helicopters, and the
anticipated tilt rotor aircraft. Airport engineers
have the responsibility of determining the size and
arrangement of these facilities for safe, efficient,
low-cost functioning of an airport
