Airports are a largely unknown and underappreciated resource in many communities. Except for the largest commercial service airports, most are perceived as areas reserved only for those who operate aircraft. In fact, airports are just as valuable to people who don’t fly, because these facilities bring important transportation and economic benefits to their surrounding communities and to the nation.
As dialogue between general aviation airport stakeholders and community residents takes on an increased importance, NBAA Members can use the NBAA Airports Handbook to show that airports are essential community assets, providing a positive economic impact and facilitating face-to-face business communications. The publication provides guidance on how business aviation operators can work with airports to ensure access, promote aviation safety and security, and otherwise serve as airport advocates.
This 24-page handbook is attractively illustrated and contains useful charts, economic case studies and a glossary of terms. It also includes a copy of an NBAA DVD titled Your Community Airport, which demonstrates the value of local airports through real-world scenarios. The DVD was created to encourage community dialogue about airports, and it is recommended viewing for flight departments, regional business aviation groups, airport user groups, chambers of commerce, local government and other community organizations.
The NBAA Airports Handbook is essential reading for individuals and groups interested in becoming more involved in the well-being of their community airports. To order a copy in print or PDF formats, use the online order form or direct questions to email@example.com.
This publication is available free of charge to both Members and non-Members upon request to NBAA. A mailing fee may be charged for bulk orders. The PDF version is also available to the public (but does not include DVD materials).
NBAA also has developed a PowerPoint presentation with speaker notes to be used in conjunction with the Airports Handbook at community events.
