First published in 1979, Airport Engineering by Ashford and Wright, has become a classic textbook in the education of airport engineers and transportation planners. Over the past twenty years, construction of new airports in the US has waned as construction abroad boomed. This trend resulted in the formation of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) which increasingly serves to codify civil aviation outside the US. This new edition if Airport Engineering will respond to this shift in the growth of airports globally, while still providing the best practices and tested fundamentals that have made the book successful for over 30 years.
