Counting Aircraft Operations at Non-Towered Airports

This synthesis project identifies and evaluates the different methods used by states, airports, and metropolitan planning agencies (MPOs), of counting and estimating aircraft operations at non-towered airports with the goal of identifying best practices. Also identified are any new technologies that can be used for these counts and estimates. Information used in this study was acquired through a literature review; a survey distributed to all 50 state aviation agencies, and selected airports and MPOs; contacts with manufacturers of counting equipment and aviation trade organizations; and follow-up telephone interviews and e-mail correspondence, where appropriate.
