Abstract : This report contains the Fiscal Years 1995-2006 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 major users of the National Aviation System: air carriers, air taxi/ commuters, military, and general aviation. 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, the aviation industry, and the general public. The outlook for the 12-year forecast period is for moderate economic growth, stable real fuel prices, modest inflation, and continued moderate to strong growth in the demand for aviation services. Based on these assumptions, aviation activity is forecast to increase by 19.7 percent at FAA towered airports (352 airports) and 26.0 percent at air route traffic control centers. The general aviation active fleet is forecast to decline by 0.8 percent during the forecast period but increased utilization (hours flown by aircraft) results in a 12.0 percent increase in general aviation hours flown during same period. Scheduled domestic revenue passenger miles (RPMs) are forecast to increase 60.5 percent, scheduled international RPMs are forecast to increase by 97.2 percent, and regional/commuter RPMs are forecast to increase by 154.1 percent.
