MODEL FOR ESTIMATING THE DEMAND FOR GENERAL AVIATION

The author presents a method for measuring the quantity and price of general aviation services, which are all USA civil aircraft not legally classified as air carriers. Estimates of the price and income elasticity of demand for general aviation air services are developed. The model suggests a seventy five percent increase in demand, over ten years, if the relative price levels remain the same. The author also suggests that if the current policy of subsidising navigational and airport facilities is abolished, it would reduce the current pressure to expand these subsidised facilities.
