ED: Topics in Airport Planning - Indoor Presentation/Discussion

Start/End Date: Wednesday, April 1, 2020 4:30 PM - Wednesday, April 1, 2020 6:00 PM
District: Eastern District

Airports in the 21st century function as hubs of transportation and economic activity, with complex externalities and interrelationships with their communities.

Ben Crooks and Andrew Macdonald from HM Aero Aviation Consulting will present on the field of airport planning, supported by case studies of projects across Canada. A discussion will also be held on off-airport land use compatibility, including the roles of Transport Canada and municipal governments, the impacts of aircraft operations, and strategies for success.

This will be our last indoor session of the winter season. Rather than a social afterwards, the ground-floor bar will be open for a pre-social at 4:30. Grab a drink as you wish and make your way to the Military Engineer Room on the 3rd floor for 5pm, when the formal presentation/discussion will begin. The Mess closes at 6pm sharp so we'll have to conclude by then.

Free event. Registration required.
