Economic Appraisal for Airports, Air Traffic Management, Airlines and Aeronautics

Aviation Investment uniquely addresses investment appraisal methods across the key industries that make up the aviation sector, including the airports, air traffic management, airline and aircraft manufacturing - or aeronautic - industries. It is a practice-oriented book where methods are presented through realistic case studies. The emphasis is on economic appraisal, or cost-benefit analysis, in order to determine the viability of projects not only for private investors but for society as a whole.


'There are many manuals and cookbooks for the evaluation of investments but surprisingly not one focusing on Aviation. Doramas Jorge Calderon has made an impressive attempt to fill this gap. The book will be the natural reference guide for those evaluating aviation investments. In addition, the book will be useful for those teaching courses in applied welfare economics at universities and business schools.
