Abstract : This two volume report contains the results of one portion of a comprehensive analysis of the benefits to be derived by both the airspace users and the ATC system operators (FAA) through the implementation of Area Navigation (RNAV). Volume one discusses the effort as configured to be responsive to the basic question raised by the FAA/Industry RNAV Task Force and others, namely, 'What Payoffs can be Expected if RNAV is Phased into the National Airspace System.' To this end, the findings and recommendations of the Task Force have been used as the basic (but not necessarily constraining) guidelines of the study for the purpose of defining the near term and long term navigation and ATC environments.
