ACC hosted the 2017 Airfield Pavement Design, Evaluation & Analysis Workshop from October 4-6 in Kansas City, MO. Registrations sold out prior to the workshop, setting the basis for a very successful event. Participants not only learned the basics on topics such as airfield pavement types, pavement performance, and aircraft traffic, but many of the presentations featured recent updates to FAA guidance. A key benefit of this course is the five workshops that attendees run through, which allows them the opportunity to work real-world problems under the guidance of the instructors. Our appreciation goes out to our course instructors with both Applied Pavement Technologies, Inc. and the FAA. Stay tuned for information about the east coast ACC Airfield Pavement Design, Evaluation & Analysis Workshop early next year!
