GENERAL AVIATION AIRCRAFT UTILIZATION FORECASTS: 1986-1987 (AN EVALUATION)

Utilization forecasts over general aviation turboprop and jet aircraft for years 1986 and 1987 were presented at "The Future of Aviation," The Fifth International Workshop, cosponsored by the FAA and the Committee on Aviation Economics and Forecasting of the Transportation Research Board. The statistical model used to develop these forecasts is based on the hypothesis that aircraft utilization, measured by flight hours per plane per year, is influenced by: (1) relative operating costs, (2) corporate profits, (3) airport and flight conditions, (4) lagged income, and (5) the lagged price of aircraft, measured by user-cost.
