An analysis of recent airport environmental planning practices shows that they have been fundamentally misdirected. Emphasis on the preparation and review of Environmental Impact Statements by governmental agencies with narrow aviation perspectives has resulted in widespread litigation and controversy. A new approach is needed, one that leads to a closer integration of airport planning and comprehensive urban planning. A systematic definition for the term environment serves as the basis for such an approach.
