Abstract : This report contains the Fiscal Years 1984-1995 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) forecasts of aviation activity at FAA facilities. These include airports with FAA control towers, air route traffic control centers, and flight service stations. Detailed forecasts were made for the four major users of the national aviation system: air carriers, air taxi/commuters, general aviation and the military. The forecasts have been prepared to meet the budget and planning needs of the constituent units of the FAA and to provide information that can be used by state and local authorities, by the aviation industry and the general public. The overall outlook for the forecast period is for strong economic growth relatively stable real fuel prices, and moderate inflation. Based upon these assumptions, aviation activity is forecast to increase by Fiscal Year 1995 by 79 percent at towered airports (commuters, 73 percent; air carrier, 23 percent; general aviation, 101 percent; military, 0 percent), 45 percent at air route traffic control centers (commuters, 110 percent; air carriers, 25 percent; general aviation, 74 percent; military, 0 percent), and 60 percent in flight services performed. Hours flown by general aviation is forecast to increase 60 percent and helicopter hours flow 67 percent. Scheduled domestic revenue passenger miles (RPM's) are forecast to increase 81 percent, with scheduled international RPM's forecast to increase by 79 percent and commuter RPM's forecast to increase by 195 percent.
