This workshop presentation gives an overview of aviation forecasting, discusses the impact of market force changes on the aviation industry, then focuses on programs that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) will emphasize to promote changes during the next sixteen months. It is concluded that the aviation industry today is healthy and well-positioned for future advances, although it faces substantial challenges to modernize equipment at all stages of operations, to improve service to retain public confidence, and to sustain the foundations for future development that are essential to long-term health. A general discussion follows this presentation.
