The author covers airport management, runways, terminals, air traffic control and airport operations, including fuelling, baggage services, freight, passenger services, retail, engineering, emergency services, ground transportation systems, security, meteorology, simulator training and telecommunications. This is a fascinating subject, ripe for the Haynes Manual treatment.
