The Bradley International Airport Master Plan Update (MPU) will be developed in accordance with guidance provided in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Advisory Circular (AC) 150/5070-6B, Airport Master Plans. The MPU study will provide a planning and development framework to address landside and airside facilities and land development considerations for the next 20 years and beyond at Bradley International Airport. The MPU will be developed in close coordination with the Connecticut Aviation Authority (CAA) and the FAA. A Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) will be formed at the outset of the study to provide guidance and advice on technical issues throughout the MPU development process. It will consist of technical level representatives of CAA, Operations staff, airlines, Airport tenants, air traffic control tower staff, local municipalities, regional planning agencies, FAA, and other key agencies and interest groups. Public outreach will also be an important component of this MPU study.
MPU study goals and objectives that reflect the needs and desires of the CAA will be developed and documented. This task is critical in the development of the MPU, for it is these goals and objectives that will shape the conclusions of the overall work program. Specific issues to be addressed in the MPU study will be identified and prioritized. These may include but are not limited to: key terminal building planning issues; land use/economic development issues; surface access/parking considerations; airfield planning issues; and the financial viability of recommended actions.
