Abstract : The document describes the procedures that are required to develop accurate estimates of annual traffic levels at non-towered airports. Coverage is given to the techniques for estimating local, itinerant and total aircraft operations due to air carrier, military or general aviation activities. In addition, methods for estimating passenger traffic are included. The estimating techniques require that surveys be made to gather samples of traffic activity at the non-towered airports. Guidelines for conducting airport traffic surveys are included and the necessary computational steps for converting the sampled data to annual estimates are defined. The estimating techniques described in the manual were selected from the results of a study conducted for the FAA and completed July 1972. Its objective was to define a standardized technique, to be used throughout the country, for estimating annual operations at non-towered airports. (Author Modified Abstract)
