Air transport — the fastest and at the same time most expensive type of transport. The main scope of air transport — people transportation at distances over one thousand kilometers. Also the freight transportation, but their share is very low. Generally the planes transportate perishable goods and especially valuable freights, and also mail. In many remote areas (in mountains, the region of the Far North) air transport doesn't have alternatives. In such cases, when in a place of landing there is no airfield (for example, delivery of scientific groups to remote areas) there are used not planes, but helicopters which don't need a landing strip. Big problem of modern planes — the noise made by them at take-off which considerably spoils quality of life of inhabitants who leave near the airports. It would be difficult to imagine the working of air transport without their home – the airports.
