Airport Planning and Design (Antonio A. Trani) Relevance of Aircraft Characteristics Aircraft classiFcations are useful in airport engineering work (including terminal gate sizing, apron and taxiway planning, etc.) and in air trafFc analyses Most of the airport design standards are related to aircraft size (i.e., wingspan, aircraft length, aircraft wheelbase, aircraft seating capacity, etc.) Airport ±eet compositions vary over time and thus is imperative that we learn how to forecast expected vehicle sizes over long periods of time The Next Generation (NextGen) air transportation system will cater to a more diverse pool of aircraft 3
