DEVELOPMENT OF A NON-SURVEY METHOD ESTIMATING TRAFFIC AT NON-TOWERED AIRPORTS

The necessity for an annual reporting of operations at each airport in the United States established the need for this report which defines a standardized procedure that can be utilized in estimating traffic at non-towered airports. The report identifies a method for estimating itinerant, total and local operations at any non-towered airport and presents the reasoning on which these procedures were derived. In addition, procedures for estimating peak traffic per day as well as per hour have been developed and are described. The estimating techniques enable the measurement of operation levels at individual airports according to the airport's own unique characteristics. An estimate of annual operations may be made with less than a manhour of effort; non-statistically oriented personnel can implement the estimating process and the method is not dependent on computer processing.
