Presentation Transcript

  1. Airport engineering

  2. 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.

  3. Components of Airport • Terminal Building (T.B) • Apron • Runways • Taxiways • Hangers

  4. Landside Facilities PASSENGER MOVEMENT TERMINAL BUILDING BAGGAGE HANDLING LANDSIDE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION PARKING FACILITIES

  5. Landside • Landside areas include parking facilities, public transportation, terminal building and all utilities that support the operations of terminals. • All these facilities associated with the movement of passengers and their baggage.

  6. Terminal Building • Provides facilities for all passenger arriving and departing from. It includes followings facilities: • Booking office • Custom’s office • Restaurants • Weather bureau • Luggage and mails rooms • Communication systems (telephone/telegraph office etc.) • Air traffic control tower

  7. The terminals are the ‘front door’ to the Airport and serve as the public interface between the airside and landside elements.

  8. Apron • Portion of the airport usually paved in front of TB, mean for parking, loading/unloading of aircraft.

  9. Hangers • Large sheds erected on airport for housing & repairing airplanes. It may be storage or service hangers.

  10. Visual Flight Rules (VFR) • Means the weather conditions are good enough for the aircraft to be operated by visual reference to the ground. • In VFR conditions, there is no “ on route traffic control” and aircraft are allowed to fly on a “see & be seen” principle.

  11. Instrument Flight Rules (IFR) • Conditions prevails when the visibility or the ceiling falls below those prescribed for flight under visual flight rules. • Essentially these rules require the assignment of specific altitude and routes and minimum separation of aircraft at the same altitude and flying in the same direction.

  12. Taxiways • Defined parked path for taxiing aircraft to & from the runway • Object is to provide access to the aircraft for runway to Terminal areas & service hangers. • Should not cross runway.
