Chapter One – Study Introduction & Goals provides an overview of the AMP, including its purpose, objectives, work products and overall structure of the project.
Chapter Two – Inventory on Existing Condition establishes a sound basis for plan and program development through the assimilation and documentation of relevant data. The inventory is designed to assemble essential data regarding the physical, operational, and functional characteristics of EKO, its sub-components, and its environs. This data collection process also includes the gathering of environmental data so that it can be considered throughout the master planning process and potential follow-on environmental efforts.
Chapter Three – Aviation Activity Forecasts essentially serve as the hub of the AMP by utilizing local socioeconomic information, as well as regional and national air transportation trends, to project the levels of aviation activity that can reasonably be expected to occur over the upcoming 20-year planning period. Assessing these future trends relating to airport utilization and operational activity levels is especially important in that many of the proposals and recommendations within the plan are principally based on aviation activity demand forecasts. Therefore, it is very important that the forecasts be both reasonable and defensible.
Chapter Four – Facility Requirements A key step in the AMP process is determining future requirements for airport facilities that will allow airside and landside development over the term of the 20 year planning period. By comparing the existing conditions of an airport to its predicted growth, an AMP process can define requirements for runways, taxiways, aprons, hangars, terminals, and other related airport facilities to accommodate growth over the short-, intermediate-, and long-term planning periods.
