The analysis and evauation of a regional air transport system for urban areas of 10 000 to 50 000 people and for large metropolitan areas have quantitative and qualtitative differences. Airport facilities within an intrastate air system often serve as catalysts of community development. The analysis of alternatives, therefore, is different from conventional major air system evaluation. The objective of this paper is the formation of a scheduling analysis model for air commuter systems is rural regions. The optimal transportation alternative will be selected in light of costs, subsidies, and travel demand. The format of this scheduling analysis model incorporates a Markovian decision theory approach. This analysis technique employs the formulation of the system state space, state transition probabilities, and state reward matrices. the alternatives studied reflect differences in service patterns and scheduling frequency. A test case example involving the Idaho interastate air transportation system was used. /Author/
