What is an Airport Master Plan?
An airport master plan is a series of reports and plans developed to support the modernization or expansion of an existing airport or the creation of a new airport such as the South Suburban Airport. These master plans are composed of several planning elements, and they are prepared using the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circular 150/5070‐6B titled “Airport Master Plans.”
An airport master plan may include the following elements:
- inventory/existing conditions,
- demand/capacity analysis,
- facility requirements,
- alternatives analysis,
- airport layout plans,
- financial analysis, and
- environmental review.
