COURSE: 47-353 Air Transportation (3)
This survey of the historical developments of air transportation systems covers facilities; impact of regulations; problems encountered in commercial transportation; airline economics, management and organization; role of governments in air transportation; and economic, social, political, and future implications of air transportation. Human dependency on air transportation is ever increasing because of globalization of economies and the need to make great use of scarce time. It is therefore of prime importance for students in aviation, particularly those in flight, to study the development of the industry and how it affects society and the economy. Prerequisite: 46-106 or 47-130. Offered: Spring.
