TRB’s Airport Cooperative Research Program (ACRP) Synthesis 41: Conducting Aeronautical Special Events at Airports consolidates available information and lessons learned on how to successfully plan, organize, and conduct an aeronautical special event and restore normal operations after the event.

For the purposes of this report, aeronautical special events are defined as those events that involve aviation activities or aircraft.

Synthesis 41 can serve as a companion document to ACRP Synthesis 57: Airport Response to Special Events that explores issues related to planning, organizing, and applying lessons learned, as well as addressing potential surprises and impacts on operations and customer services related to a variety of non-aeronautical events that occur both on and off an airport.
