The rapid growth of the aviation industry, propelled by catalysts like Liberalization, Privatization and Globalization has in recent years given a major fillip to the global economy in terms of facilitating international trade, generating employment, foreign exchange earnings, and prosperity from tourism, industrial growth and technological development. The potential market for air transport has shown signs of a strong global resurgence, with the Asia Pacific region's performance far exceeding the world average growth&.with India and China being projected as the hottest growth sectors.The Indian aviation industry has shown impressive growth, contributing 1.0%, 8.0% and 69% share at the global, Asia Pacific and South Asian regional levels respectively. Key players such as Boeing, Airbus Industrie, ACI, IATA and ICAO envisage that India will touch 100 million passengers by 2010. Meanwhile, the Indian Government has responded suitably, inter alia by encouraging private sector participation in the development of the civil aviation sector. Over ten chapters, this informative book elucidates all the concepts fundamental to the management of air transport, illuminating the factors key to operational, infrastructural and public policy in the development of air transport.

This is a standard reference for FAA and military air traffic control engineers and maintenance technicians focused on ground-based radar systems. With the evolution and increasing sophistication of modern radar systems, now more than ever a single-source reference is needed that contains simply understandable information on MTI, MTD, and Air Traffic Control Radar Beacon systems.

USAF Enlisted Air Traffic Controller Selection

Over the past decade, the U.S. military has conducted several studies to evaluate determinants of enlisted air traffic controller (ATC) performance. Research has focused on validation of the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) and has shown it to be a good predictor of training performance. Despite these efforts, enlisted ATC training and post-training attrition is higher than desirable, prompting interest in alternate selection methods to augment current procedures. The current study examined the utility of the FAA Air Traffic Selection and Training (AT-SAT) battery for incrementing the predictiveness of the ASVAB versus several enlisted ATC training criteria. Subjects were 448 USAF enlisted ATC students who were administered the ASVAB and FAA AT-SAT subtests and subsequently graduated or were eliminated from apprentice-level training. Training criteria were a dichotomous graduation/elimination training score, average ATC fundamentals course score, and FAA certified tower operator test score. Results confirmed the predictive validity of the ASVAB and showed that one of the AT-SAT subtests resembling a low-fidelity ATC work sample significantly improved prediction of training performance beyond the ASVAB alone. Results suggest training attrition could be reduced by raising the current ASVAB minimum qualifying score. However, this approach may make it difficult to identify sufficient numbers of trainees and lead to adverse impact. Although the AT-SAT ATC work sample subtest showed incremental validity to the ASVAB, its length (95 minutes) may be problematic in operational testing. Recommendations are made for additional studies to address issues affecting operational implementation.--P. i.
