Abstract : The many individual programs which comprise the National Airspace System Plan are designed to provide more air traffic control service to the aviation users at reduced operating costs to the FAA. The FAA is able to justify its investment in the NAS Plan by a cost/effectiveness argument. The benefits and costs to the aviation users are the focus of this report. By using example cases to quantify a portion of the potential dollar benefits that would be available to the aviation user as a result of the FAA's implementation of its NAS Plan, this report concludes that the added benefits to the users exceed the users' added costs in avionics equipment by a large margin.
