The purpose of this study was to collect facts concerning general aviation (GA) in the South East, to present forecasts of potential demand arising within the study area in the period 1985, and to review these forecasts in the light of volume and type of ground facilities available to general aviation users. The report analyses the demand for GA facilities, the rational of recreational and business flying, the need of the user, the available faciliites, and future propects. The report indicates that both exclusive business and air taxi operations are likely to continue to grow; fuel price increases are not expected to have a major effect on this particular type of flying; and, some growth is forecast for third level services and other fixed wing GA operations. It is noted that although the requirements of the different users vary considerably, there is still a shared use of certain facilities. Finally a comparison is made between the magnitude of precast demand and the size and capacity in aviation terms of the 67 airfields classified is this report showing which airfield, could in principle accept the different classes of traffic.
