Abe brings a strong background in aviation and business with a wide breadth of practical experience, ranging from large and small commercial airport planning and design to technical writing and public presentations. His technical planning experience includes evaluations of airfield and airspace environments, development of Airport Master Plans and airport layout plans as well as safety risk assessments of airfield changes. Abe’s ability to swiftly and effectively understand client issues has allowed him to integrate into challenging projects to develop workable alternatives and solutions. He looks at complex problems from a holistic perspective to propose comprehensive and practical solutions.

Abe has worked on a variety of airfield and airspace projects at many sizes of airports.
