STATE OF THE NATION'S AIR TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM. SUMMARY PROCEEDINGS OF A SYMPOSIUM, JUNE 3-4, 1976

The key note presentations, highlights of the panel discussions and the statement of issues which were presented at a 2-day symposium to analyze the state of the nations air transportation system are published here. The symposium focused on the status of specific areas such as new technologies, productivity, finances, and economics and on the potential impacts of proposed regulatory reform actions. The symposium expressed concern about the industry's economic health, and noted that federal government action will be a significant factor in the future success of the industry. New financial techniques may be required to develop and implement the technological promise of future generations of air transport. The most important issue as perceived by the industry is the course of action the federal government will take on airline deregulation or regulatory reform and the impact of such action. The importance of the travel growth forecast, the key design forces for the next generation, and the administrative constraints in the environmental and energy area which will dictate the future course of the industry are also discussed. The technical and financial issues relating to the solution of the problems are identified.
