Abstract : This report contains the Fiscal Years 1988-1999 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 by the general public. The overall outlook for the forecast period is for continued economic growth, rising real fuel prices, and moderate inflation. Based upon these assumptions, aviation activity by fiscal year 1999 is forecast to increase by 33.4 percent at towered airports, 33.5 percent at air route traffic control centers, and 11.7 percent in flight services performed. Hours flown by general aviation are forecast to increase 6.1 percent and helicopter hours flown, 33.3 percent. Scheduled domestic revenue passenger miles (RPM's) are forecast to increase 75.8 percent, with scheduled international RPM's forecast to increase by 81.3 percent, and regionals/commuters RPM's forecast to increase by 16.9 percent.
