The Evolution of Airfield to Airport

Robbert Kivits, Sukanlaya Sawang

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


To create a thorough understanding of the Australian context to the book, a historical review of the evolution of the earliest airfields to the current state of the modern airports will be given. This review allows for a clearer understanding of why Australian airports are located where they are, and how the mismatch between on- and off-airport planning came to exist.
