2. Calendar Description 
2.1 Course Description: 
A study of airport planning and successful airport operation. Topics include the duties and responsibilities of the airport manager, regulations governing the operation of commercial and  public airports in Canada and internationally, fiscal management of airports, forecasting methods,  environmental issues and requirements, terminal building concepts, current and emerging public 
airport issues. 

Antirequisite(s): N/A 
Prerequisite(s): Enrolment in 4th year of the Commercial Aviation Management module of BMOS or Geography and Commercial Aviation Management module. Senate Regulations state, “unless you have either the requisites for this course or written special 

permission from your Dean to enroll in it, you will be removed from this course and it will be deleted from your record. This decision may not be appealed. You will receive no adjustment to your fees in the event that you are dropped from a course for failing to have the necessary prerequisites.” 
Course Objectives and Format The DAN Department of Management and Organizational Studies as a whole draws upon an evidence-based management approach. Evidence-based management is the systematic process of gathering evidence from multiple sources, critically appraising the evidence, and using that evidence in making and  evaluating management decisions to improve organizational performance. 

4.1 Course objectives 
In this course, the major components of planning and managing airports will be taught with the objective of providing the student with a broad understanding of airports and their role in aviation transportation.  Critical issues around airport design and operations will be explored.   
4.2 Course format 
Lecture, Case Studies, Discussions through synchronous lecture period.  Attendance is expected. 
5. Evaluation I. Interactivity (15%): A crucial element of this course is the sharing of ideas and opinions.  Since each of us brings a unique background of experiences, much can be learned from class debate and discussion.Your interactivity grade will depend on involvement in on-line and in-class discussions / activities, and questioning of student presentations.  

Course Description

Important Information Re: Absences:  All absences will impact your interactivity grade.  As a rule of thumb, you can expect each unexcused absence to subtract at least 10% of your interactivity grade (roughly 1.5% of your grade in the course).  For medical absences, refer to the policy on accommodation for medical illness (  If you have a valid excuse for an absence you must inform the instructor before the intended date.  It is the instructor’s discretion whether 
or not to excuse an absence.   

Course readings: It is expected that all students will have completed their assigned course readings before attending each lecture. This is important as it provides an enhanced understanding of the course material and students will be prepared to ask questions in class.II. Assignments and Quizzes (20%): A combination of hand-in short assignments and (possibly randomly scheduled) in-class quizzes will be used as checkpoints for mastery of course material throughout the term. Quizzes and assignments will cover all information in the course, including readings, lectures, videos, examples, guest speakers etc. therefore, it is crucial that you take good notes throughout the term. Formats may include multiple choice, fill-in-the-blanks, short answer, and/or essay 

III. Case Presentation (20%): In a small group you will have a chance to analyze a case/report and lead a discussion on the case/report for the class. The goal of the assignment is to offer an opportunity to practice making a business presentation as well as to become highly familiar with a particular case/report. Additional details will be provided in class.  
IV. Airport Assessment Term Project (45%): The ‘Airport Assessment' assignment is a term-long project done online through OWL with a significant portion of peer feedback and iteration. Students will be  required to pick an airport of interest to them and evolve a detailed assessment of it throughout the term culminating in a final report. More details provided in-class.  
At the discretion of the instructor, a passing mark in the course requires: 
• a passing mark on the final submission of the term project (IV) 
• AND passing marks on 2 of the 3 individual components (I, II, IV) 

Independent of your score given by the above grade composition Course components and late policy: Assignments are due at the assigned time, which may be at the  beginning of the class period. Students who turn in their assignment after deadline will be subject to a minimum 15% late penalty. Additional late penalties will be incurred for each 24 hour period that the assignment is late, as specified in each assignment description. Unless arrangements are made at least  72 hours prior to a due date, there will be no exceptions to this policy. Students are expected to arrange their time so they are robust to the known challenges associated with completing assignments (power outages, network difficulties, etc...) Students are responsible for material covered in the lectures as well as the assigned chapters/sections in the text.


Students are REQUIRED TO COMPLETE ALL COMPONENTS of this course. There are no exceptions to this. Extra assignments to improve grades will NOT be allowed. Grades will not be adjusted on the basis of need. It is important to monitor your performance in the course. Remember: You are responsible for your grades in this course.The DAN Department has a grade policy which states that for courses in the 4000 range, the class average must fall between 70% and 77% for all sections of a course taught by the same instructor.  In very exceptional circumstances only, class averages outside this range may be approved by the 
Undergraduate Chair or Chair.  Class averages are not grounds for appeal. 

Material covered in lectures will not always be the same as material covered in the textbook. These two sources should be viewed as complimentary and not redundant. As such, students who want to do well in  this course are strongly encouraged to attend lectures on a regular basis. Please note that the instructor will not be providing copies of lectures notes or overheads. Therefore, if you miss a lecture, you should try to obtain this material from another student.  

Please act respectfully towards the classroom, the Professor and your fellow students. Acting respectfully means arriving on time, turning off phones, avoiding private discussions during  lectures, refraining from viewing non-course material on your laptops, and cleaning up after yourself. Acting respectfully provides a better learning experience for everyone. Private in-class discussions are distracting to students and the Professor. If other students are  distracting your attention from the material, you should ask them to be quiet. If you feel uncomfortable doing this (or the problem persists), please see the instructor.  Late arrivals are also distracting. Please try to arrive on time for classes.

You may not record lectures, reproduce (or allow others to reproduce), post or distribute lecture notes, wiki material, and other course materials publicly and/or for commercial purposes without my written consent. E-mail Policies  The following policies apply to all emails between students and the Professor. Please respect the fact that the Professor receives hundreds of emails from students and must deal with those emails in a fair and organized manner. Unacceptable emails will receive a reply saying only “Please see Email Policies on the 
course outline”. 

14. Procedures For Appealing Academic Evaluations 1. In the first instance, all appeals of a grade must be made to the course instructor (informal consultation).  
2. If the student is not satisfied with the decision of the course instructor, a written appeal must be sent to the Undergraduate Chair: Student Affairs of the Department of Management and Organizational  Studies.  
3. If the response of the Undergraduate Chair is considered unsatisfactory to the student, he/she may then appeal to the Dean of the Faculty in which the course of program was taken.  

4. Only after receiving a final decision from the Dean may a student appeal to the Senate Review 
Board Academic. A Guide to Appeals is available from the Ombudsperson's Office.
