U.S. Aerodrome Lighting

U.S. Aerodrome Lighting DURING the past few years, air transport companies have found it necessary to operate on 24hour schedules in order to compete successfully and economically with other transportation facilities in carrying passengers, mail and express. Commercial success of these privately owned air transport companies cannot come through Government subsidy, but must come through the rendering of improved service for which the public at large will pay. This improved service is only given by the saving of time and, therefore, both airway navigation facilities and general airport illumination must be such that the pilot may handle his aircraft from startingpoint to ultimate destination with minimum time delay at intermediate stopping points. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

DURING the past few years, air transport companies have found it necessary to operate on 24hour schedules in order to compete successfully and economically with other transportation facilities in carrying passengers, mail and express. Commercial success of these privately owned air transport companies cannot come through Government subsidy, but must come through the rendering of improved service for which the public at large will pay. This improved service is only given by the saving of time and, therefore, both airway navigation facilities and general airport illumination must be such that the pilot may handle his aircraft from startingpoint to ultimate destination with minimum time delay at intermediate stopping points.
