Apron Planning and Design Guidebook
TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Report 96: Apron Planning and Design Guidebook addresses best practices for planning, designing, and marking apron areas for all sizes and types of airports in the United States.
The apron planning and design considerations include facility geometrics, aircraft maneuvering, apron/airfield access points, operational characteristics, markings, lighting, and aircraft fleets. In addition, the types of aprons include terminal area, deicing, general aviation, cargo, maintenance, and remote aprons and helipads.
