Civil Aviation and Facilities. Aerospace Education II.
Orser, N. A.; Glascoff, W. G., III
This book, which is to be used only in the Air Force ROTC training program, deals with the kinds of civil aviation facilities and the intricacies and procedures of the use of flying. The first chapter traces the development of civil aviation and the formation of organizations to control aviation systems. The second chapter describes varieties of aviation for which the term "civil aviation" is used. This includes brief descriptions of agricultural, business, instructional, recreational, air taxi service, and civil air patrol aviation systems. The third chapter delves into the problems related to the management of aviation facilities. A chapter on air traffic control provides information on its role. One full chapter on the construction and operation of airports is very informative in nature. (PS)
