The ITRE Aviation Team maintains a close relationship with many of the aviation stakeholders in the state which are critical not just to modernization efforts and research, but they also play an important role in maintaining a strong, vibrant aviation community within North Carolina. The team is available for developing custom programs with members of the community that are interested in aviation infrastructure such as the economic impact of the airport network in NC, aviation system plans, and training programs.
Recently the ITRE Aviation Team has started developing an Airport Technical Assistance Program for training airport managers and staff. The team also publishes the “Economic Contribution of Airports in North Carolina” report for NCDOT. The latest report is the 2012 report.
