Choose an airport, identify the components of the airport and In the second part you will explore the challenges on various components of the airfields (runways, taxiways, surrounding area) and those faced by ATC and airport management in the airspace and surface that can adversely hamper smooth airport operations from the list presented below. You can use several airport examples to supplement your analysis.
Part 1
Identify the various components of the airfield including runways and taxiways – their orientation, designation, types, lengths, widths.

Details of desired components
Runways – The number of runways, the length/widths, the material used to construct the runways, their orientations and designations.
Taxiways – The different types of taxiways.

  • Challenges In airspace for ATC and Airport Management-
    • Drone activities, birds presence, airspace capacity challenges.
  • Technologies and processes implemented by airports to tackle such challenges
