Abstract : During a three-hour survey period in July 1973, 235 aircraft of 39 mixed types made 514 point-to-point and local airport flights to or from the Long Beach Airport, California. These flights represented a normal general aviation flight day for this location during the preferred flying season of the year, generally conceded to be July, August, and September. The survey data presented in this report are one facet of an effort to obtain comprehensive, real-life, three-dimensional traffic samples of flight activity for the construction of air traffic models. These models will demonstrate present activities and densities and serve as a data base for future aircraft movement projections as well as air traffic systems and hardware development.
