INCOME AND COST IMPACT ON GENERAL AVIATION HOURS FLOWN BY INDIVIDUAL OWNERS

Using data from the Federal Aviation Administration's national sample of general aviation aircraft owners, this study explores the impact of changes in family income, hourly operating cost, and other variables on five different measures of hours flown for aircraft owned by individuals (versus companies). Results for total, itinerant, instrument, and visual hours flown support the theoretical notion that hours flown rise until unit costs reach some critically high level, beyond which hours flown begin to decrease.
