Abstract : The objectives of the study were to evaluate existing procedures for estimating annual operations at non-tower airports, develop new alternative methods with equal or superior qualifications and present necessary comparison data concerning statistical accuracy and cost to permit the FAA to select a standardized technique to be used throughout the country. For this purpose an analytical procedure was developed which evaluated both existing and new alternative techniques by comparing their predictive qualities with a set of known operations data representative of airports in each region of the United States. The body of the report summarizes the more significant elements of the study. Included in this volume are the principal results, the basis of the analysis, documentation of comparative studies and identification of recommended alternative estimation techniques.
