The recently published ACRP Research Report 244: Advancing the Practice of State Aviation System Planning provides guidance to stakeholders involved in the development of a state aviation system plan (SASP). TRB hosted a webinar on Thursday, September 21, 2023 from 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM Eastern that presented guidance and key information to scope, develop, and implement a comprehensive SASP that can better reflect emerging trends, optimize increasingly limited resources, emphasize roles and responsibilities in managing state aviation systems, and meet the unique needs of each state.

This webinar was sponsored by TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program.
