Welcome to the Airport Managers Blog!
A few years back there was an experemental spacecraft design known as the X-33 (Google Image Search). It is actually a very interesting design which never got off the ground even after spending 912 million. Lockheed Martin just was awarded the contract to build its replacement and to replace the shuttle.
I found this site:
It has alot of great information, and has samples of some great intersections, station layouts, and much more. If you havn't ever seen this site I suggest you go visit it.
You will be happy you did.
Here are some copy/past files I made that I use very frequently. There is one intersection and three station types.
Here are three stations I use, they are defined by the following numbers ?x?x?x?, where the first ? is the width of the industry, the second ? is the length of the industry, the third ? is the number of track lanes in the station, and the last ? is the length of the station.
Standard Station 3x2x2x5
Used for Coal and other similarly sized industries
Standard Station 4x4x2x5
Used for Iron Ore and other similarly sized industries
Standard Station 5x5x2x5
Used for Wood and other similarly sized industries
That's it for now, more sure to come soon!
My topic for the A.A.A.E Research paper and paragraph outline have been approved. This means I can start to actually write the paper. As I said before the paper must be at least 30 pages long and applicable to all management levels at an airport.
The American Association of Airport Executives has made some changes in how the paper can be formated, which fotunirly means I can structure my paper a little different then just a plain old documentary style research paper.
The topic of my paper is "Using Computer-Based Technology in Meeting 14 CFR, Part 139 Self-Inspection Requirements". This topic is of special interest to me for a number of different reasons, mainly because ensuring part 139 compliance is my main duty at the airport (besides the management stuff), and secondly because I am developing the airport record keeping system for airports called OpenAirport.org.
The paper is currently 21 pages long and a little over half done, so I should meet the paper requirements without any problems.
I have been spending some more time recently with a mod to Transport Tycoon Called OpenTTD. More information about OpenTTD can be found at www.tt-forums.net. The interface in the game is nice an clean and I thought I would give this site that style interface for a little while.
