English translation:airport (high) technology park ; airport business & tehcnology park
Explanation:
Hello,

I used to live in England - I am English so cannot speak about what term might be appropriate in the US. In adn around Cambridge, Oxford and the M6 corridor, the terms "business park" "technology park" are all used commonly.

I searched the web (on Google.com and on alta Vista.com) for "airport technology park". Here is an extract of teh first page on Google for "airport technology park". Loads of hits. Results for "aéropole" were generally made in reference to foreign sites. I would agree that "aeropole" does sound unnatural in English.

Aeropole (High Technology Center (by the airport))


Explanation:
Bonjour. Same word in English.These two sites show what's it all about and...where. Seems the onus is on being close or have direct access to an airport: 1st link:
"...l’Aéropole, une infrastructure de développement établie dans la périphérie de Charleroi et dont l’originalité repose sur l’association entre un aéroport à vocation internationale et une zone d’activités de haute technologie." 2nd link:
AEROPOLE 1 & 2
Centre d'excellence et de compétences de la technologie aéronautique
Accès direct à la piste d'aviation (3km) - Accès direct autoroute A1 - 520'000 m2 disponibles. Another good link:
http://www.igretec.com/ECOFR/terrain-aeropole.htm
Hope it helps, au revoir :)

a caveat


Explanation:
I should be very surprised if this term catches on in US English. It doesn't look (with the aero- spelling) or sound like anything we would use. I'd say "high technology parks near airports".

Airport Technology Center; Airport Technology Park


Explanation:
These things are cropping up around the world. I've certainly seen a number of them in my own travels around the U.S. I drive by the Pittsburgh one every time I go to the airport there. I've put Google search results references for both terms below, plus some other combinations that didn't net any results.

And some stats, to give you an idea of which way the wind is blowing and help you make a choice of terms I got 10 hits on Google for "Airport Technology Park" and 13 hits for "airport technology center" (mostly relating to Pittsburgh and Indianapolis, here in the U.S.). And I also got two hits for "technology park near airport"; nothing at all for "high technology park near airport", "airport high technology center", "high technology center near airport", or even "technology center near airport."
