An airport is much like a telephone -- it has little use by itself, but becomes increasingly useful as its numbers grow.
The time interval in aircraft improvement will be shortened to a degree comparable to the time mastery of the principle of aviation itself. Consequently, for airport planning it is not enough to base judgment on decadent gradualism. Today's plans must be based on the fact that the future growth of air traffic will be phenomenal.
The accommodation of present demands with sufficient facilities to service anticipated growth is the backbone of this thesis.
