ACRP Synthesis 18: Aviation Workforce Development Practice
On page 13 of ACRP Synthesis 18, the first paragraph under the heading Accredited Airport Executive (AAE) and Certified Member (CM) Programs was incomplete. The paragraph should read:
The AAAE’s accredited airport executive program is widely accepted in the industry as one of the standard programs for developing executive-level airport professionals. To satisfy the written requirement, a candidate may choose to write a research paper on an approved topic, take and pass a proctored essay examination, write a case study on an approved topic, or submit documentation of a completed master’s degree. Candidates do have access to an AAAE staff member for support while completing the written requirement; however, staff does not help candidates develop research for their written report. The Academic Relations Committee sponsors a mentor program pairing already accredited professionals with student members of the association. The South Central Chapter sponsors a week-long Academy to help prepare candidates for the multiple choice exam. There are three academies each year. Members of the AAAE Academic Relations Committee include AAAE members.

Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 1844: Traffic Control Devices, Visibility, and Rail–Highway Grade Crossings 2003
An editorial punctuation error was introduced in the paper coauthored by Michelle Kun Huang, John D. Bullough, Peter R. Boyce, and Andrew Bierman, "Detection and Identification of Light-Emitting Diode Traffic Signals by Protan Observers," pp. 52–58.
The closing bracket was misplaced within the sentence on pp. 52–53, that begins, "Greene (16) measured the color-naming performance of color-normal and -deficient observers to LEDs of various dominant wavelengths [the dominant wavelength of a colored light is defined in Rea (8)]…." The closing bracket should be moved from after "Rea (8)" to after the phrase "appearance of the colored light," to correctly distinguish the contributions of Greene and Rea. The correct sentence should read as follows:
Greene (16) measured the color-naming performance of color-normal and -deficient observers to LEDs of various dominant wavelengths [the dominant wavelength of a colored light is defined in Rea (8) as the wavelength of a monochromatic source that, mixed with a suitable proportion of light from a reference white source, will match the appearance of the colored light] and offered preliminary conclusions that dominant wavelengths of 623 nm for red, 591 nm for yellow, and 494 nm for green were probably acceptable for traffic-signal identification.
Corrected page 53 is provided in PDF format.
Transportation Research Record: Journal of the Transportation Research Board, No. 1828: Pedestrians and Bicycles 2003
In the paper by Elio Espino, Javier Gonzalez, and Albert Gan, "Identifying Pedestrian High-Crash Locations as Part of Florida's Safety Improvement Program: A Systematic Approach," pp. 83–88, Equation 1, page 83, was erroneously typeset to include the expression 1/(2m) under the radical sign.
