After completing your readings for this week, review other sources to obtain data on historical international aviation events. Respond to the following prompt:
Discuss two critical issues you found interesting. Present supporting documentation and analyze the issues for a proposed research topic. Post a question about your issues that you would like your classmates to respond to. Write a minimum of 250 words. You must provide citations and references to support answers. Use at least one outside reference source cited in current APA format.
2. Case Study: Trade Challenges
Prepare a 2-3 page case study that summarizes the Small Island Development Trade Challenges. Research additional sources and comment on what you have found regarding the challenges presented. Conclude with your assessment of potential solutions to these challenges facing the aviation industry. Be sure to include additional research and resources to support your case study. The assignment should be written according to the writing style guide and the references should be written in current APA format. Include a title page, header, restatement of the title on the top line above the introductory paragraph, a reference page, and all in-text and reference citations.

3. Forecasting Flaws
An Airport Master Plan can be a 5, 10, or even 20-year document developed by an airport. It is a very detailed document. Larger airports can spend several thousand dollars to have a master plan created or updated. Much of this FAA-controlled document is based on forecasting, a methodology the authors of your textbook do not believe works. If forecasting is so flawed, why does it continue to be used by major airports? Consider and debate whether or not airport planners should continue to base master plans on forecasting. Defend your response.
4. Advisory Circular Report Summary
The FAA publishes Advisory Circulars (AC) which address the Airport Planning and Design process. Review the following AC which highlights the methodology planners utilize in system planning: https://www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/Advisory_Circular/150-5070-7-change1.pdf
Summarize the two most important sections of this Circular and how it affects Master Planning. Explain how the FAA Airport System Planning Process differs from the Dynamic Strategic Planning Process. Your report should be a minimum of two pages in length (not including the reference page).
