21st Century Airport Planning, Design, and Development: A two-part Embry-Riddle Webinar Series

According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), some 3.6 billion passengers are expected to fly on commercial aircraft in 2016. That’s 800 million more than just five years ago. And these numbers continue to grow by more than 5 percent per year.  We can build the airplanes but what about airports? The issue of expanding current airports and developing new ones is critical to the growth of the aviation industry.

We invite you to join us for “21st Century Airport Planning, Design, and Development,” a two-part webinar series presented by leading aviation experts from Embry-Riddle.

Attendees can sign up for one or both sessions. Drs. Patti Clark and Katherine Moran covered “Airport Sustainability, Safety, and Certification” in Part I. A week later, Assistant Professor Shawn Arena and Dr. Daniel Benny covered “Airport Planning and Security” during Part II. 

Each session is one hour. Please register for each part individually.
