Abstract : This document was prepared under the supervision of the Office of Aviation Policy and Plans of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). It provides technical documentation for the FAA's report, Airport and Airway Costs: Allocation and Recovery in the 1980s, (FAA-APO-87-7). This volume provides detailed information on the estimation of econometric cost functions for certain FAA operating sites. These functions relate costs to measures of service provided such as operations handled and pilot briefs prepared. A separate cost function is estimated for each type of FAA site-Air Route Traffic Control Centers, Flight Service Stations, Terminal Radar Approach Controls, and VFR towers-for both 1984 and 1992. Keywords: Public Finance; Cost Recovery; Aviation User Taxes.
