A FORECAST USER SPEAKS OUT

The purpose of this workshop is to talk about forecasting the activity of the aviation industry, and industry that is in flux and which has yet to attain a stable equilibrium. To illustrate the problem, it is not known how many airlines will be operating next week, much les next decade. Yet we boldly move ahead and year after year make our fearless forecasts. With this as a background, three questions will be covered in this presentation: 1. How credible are current aviation forecasts? 2. How useful are these forecasts to decision makers in government and industry? 3. What can forecasters do in the future to be more effective? (Author)
