The Arizona State Airport System Plan is composed of the following elements: 1. The Introduction outlines the purpose of the Plan and its relation to Federal, State, and local airport planning. 2. The State Profile presents an overview of the physical, demographic, economic, and planning activities in the State that are relevant to airport system planning. 3. Goals and Objectives define an overall direction for Arizona to pursue in support of aviation and the environment within which it operates. 4. The Trends, Patterns, and Forecasts chapter highlights past growth and development of aviation in Arizona, describes the current nature of aviation, and presents forecasts of airport activity. 5. The State Airport System chapter delineates a system of airports to fulfill State objectives. This system is evaluated for coverage, duplication, and airport constraints. 6. Aviation Policies discuss several important issues that are critical to the future operation of the State Airport System. These issues include airport-land use compatibility, private and Indian airports, airport ground access, aviation system management, navigational aids, airspace, and airport development standards. 7. The Facility Requirements and Revenue Projections chapter identifies the improvements necessary to repair, preserve, and upgrade the operating characteristics of each System airport. Cost estimates of these improvements are included. In addition, projections of airport revenues by Federal, State, and local sources are made through the Year 2000. 8. The Alternatives: Identification and Evaluation chapter presents three alternatives based upon different levels of aviation service. 9. The Recommended Plan is consistent with the aviation goals and objectives, projected revenues, and aviation policies and standards, as well as aviation system management. 10. Implementation and Continuous Planning Process presents a strategy to implement the plan and keep it current. This section also recommends subjects that need to be studied in greater detail. In addition, a Technical Supplement is presented separately. This section provides detailed information concerning State System Airports, community population and economic data, recommended airport improvements to meet State standards, and other miscellaneous data. /Authors/
