Abstract : The report contains prepared and organized for use in evaluating the cost/benefits of all weather landing systems and fog dissipation techniques. Thus, the time intervals of duration of the categories of weather are significant in determining the times of the delay, diversion or cancellation of an aircraft flight resulting from a restricted weather category. This information together with the number and types of aircraft affected by the restricted weather and the costs of a delay, diversion or cancellation combine to provide the total costs resulting from the weather restrictions.
