  Taking Flight at PDX: From Runways to Air Traffic Control

   How does your plane fly? On a dark and stormy night, how does the pilot find the airport? Why do some planes make more noise than others? If you can’t even get of your driveway in a snow storm, how are they keeping the airport open? At this Science Pub, come find out about these and other aspects of commercial aviation, including the physics of flight, sound propagation, and airport operations. 

  Chris Corich is General Manager of Long Range Planning and Noise, and a 16-year veteran at PDX.
