ITECPP was invited to join UCLA’s ITE Student Chapter on a joint tech tour at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) on October 25th. The students were taken on a bus and driven around the surface level of the airport. The tour consisted of information on how airport operations are run and information about the different planes coming in and out of the airport.LAX Tout

The airport has 4 runways total; the southern side contains the longest ones at 12,000 feet and 11,000 feet. The other two runways located at the northern section of the airport are 10,000 feet and 9000 feet.

The students were taken on the southern side of the airport where the cargo airlines are located along with the catering companies. During the tour, students were able to witness many planes landing and taking off at a close up view while stationed at the end of the runway. There are around 1700-1800 operations happening per day at the airport with a peak of 2200 operations. During the peak hours there is an amazing view of the variety of planes queuing up in line ready to take off on all runways.LAX tour

Tom Bradley International terminal recently completed their phase 1 and opened to travelers, with the project costing 2.9 billion dollars the terminal will be opening in a series of phases. It will consist of new terminals that are able to handle new bigger aircrafts like the Airbus A380, which is the largest passenger aircraft in the world. The students were taken along the runway and were able to see the Tom Bradley International Terminal from the outside where the Airbus A380’s were parked.

By going to this tech tour students were able to learn about the different operations happening within the airport and the different improvements that are implemented to accommodate different types of aircrafts. Airplanes are one of the different modes of transportation, and this was a great opportunity for students to relate to.
