Development of Air Transport Facilities in Remote Areas

Engineering Conference Darwin: Developing Remote Areas; Printed Papers

Abstract: The article provides a brief account of the development of airport facilities in remote areas that occurred for reasons not directly associated with the region itself. With the increase in the number and sophistication of aircraft along with more stringent safety requirements, a complex infrastructure became necessary to service air transport. The aim of the paper is to list Australia's assistance in developing air transport facilities in developing countries specially in remote locations with difficult access, climatic, topographical and geotechnical problems.
