Development of airport master plans

Development of airport master plans

An airport master plan provides complex solutions of issues related to territory planning and improvement and location of an airfield, buildings, structures, equipment, air traffic control systems, radio navigation and landing systems, transport communications, pipelines and networks on that territory. When developing a master plan, institute experts consider all aspects including development prospect, economics, and specificity of that airport and region.

A master plan structure takes into account:

  • Assessment and selection of the airport location,
  • Ground area dimensioning for the airport,
  • Assessment of influencing factors for the airport location,
  • Study of airport possible location variants,
  • On site examination of areas and environment studying,
  • Study of a situation site plan,
  • Selection of an optimal airfield location variant,
  • Determination of physical characteristics and planning solutions for a runway, taxiways, parking places, and ramps,
  • Determination of runway and airport capacities,
  • A phased plan for development and construction,
  • Selection of site development character and functional zoning of a service technical territory considering technological and transport communications and safe aircraft manoeuvring,
  • Determination of access ways from the town side,
  • Development of a diagram of inner airport roads, passes, and squares,
  • Fencing of the airport territory,
  • Selection and planning of separated structures and sites of air traffic control, radio navigation, landing, water treatment and intake facilities, and fuel and lubricant depots.
