Abstract : This report contains the Fiscal Years 1996-2007 Federal Aviation (FAA) Forecasts of aviation activity at FAA facilities. These include airports with both FAA and contract control towers, air route traffic control centers, and flight service stations. Detailed forecasts were developed for the major users of the National Aviation System: air carriers, air taxi/commuters, general aviation, and military. The forecasts have been prepared to meet the budget and planning needs of the constituent units of the FAA and to provide information which 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 19.2 percent at the combined FAA and contract towered airports (439 in 1996) and 26.6 percent at air route traffic control centers. The general aviation active fleet is forecast to increase by almost 5.0 percent during the forecast period while general aviation hours flown grow by almost 10.0 percent. Scheduled domestic revenue passenger miles (RPMs) are forecast to increase 57.3 percent, scheduled international RPMs are forecast to increase by 84.9 percent, and regional/commuter RPMs are forecast to increase by 116.7 percent.
