To be held at The Lakefront Anchorage hotel adjacent to Lake Hood, home to the world’s busiest seaplane base, and to Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport, the 10th National Aviation System Planning Symposium will explore ongoing developments in technology and policy, and their impact on planning of aviation systems through the 21st century and beyond.
The National Aviation System Planning Symposium (NASPS) is a triennial event organized with the goal of assessing the state of the art in system planning, addressing current issues confronting the airport and aviation industry, and identifying research needs to inform the future research agenda for aviation system planning. The symposium brings together system planning consultants, airport and aviation system planners and managers, air carrier and other aviation industry representatives, Federal and state transportation officials, and others interested in the future development of the aviation system and its role in the larger multi-modal transportation system for two days of meetings, presentations, and networking. The NASPS provides a unique opportunity to gather people who are actively involved in planning the aviation system to focus on its future development and improvement for a sustainable, healthy future. The symposium is cosponsored by the Transportation Research Board committees on Aviation System Planning and Intergovernmental Relations in Aviation.
