MOVEMENT TIME AS A COST IN AIRPORT OPERATIONS

Increased air traffic has brought significant increases in landing or take-off delays at some of the large metropolitan airports. The Federal Aviation Administration recently proposed hourly quotas for landings and take-offs at the major airports. The quotas would require severe reduction in general aviation traffic. One way in which general aviation movements could be limited, other than through quotas systems, is through revision of landing fees. At most airport landing fees are proportional to the gross weight of the aircraft, A more significant variable is the length of time that a movement takes. Assuming landing fees for large planes are the correct ones, a revision of landing fees to take into account the average time that aircraft of various types occupy the runways and approach paths would result in higher landing fees for general aviation traffic.
