Abstract

The new Denver International Airport will be the first new major commercial airport to be built in the United States in 20 years. Concern has been expressed about the meteorology at the new airport site and its potential impact on aviation safety. Several levels of assessment of weather safety at and in the vicinity of the new airport site have been conducted by airport planners. In addition, the new airport site area has been intensively studied by research scientists. Meteorologists and aviation experts have concluded that the site of the new Denver airport does not raise special concerns regarding weather safety. Denver International should enhance aviation weather safety as a consequence of the improved alignment and spacing of runways, greater distance from the Rocky Mountains, and technological advances at the new facility.
