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,
  • forecasts,
  • demand/capacity analysis,
  • facility requirements,
  • alternatives analysis,
  • airport layout plans,
  • financial analysis, and
  • environmental review.
