The report documents a methodology for airport investment planning that permits the explicit diversion of aircraft operations from a time of highly concentrated demand to other times of the day. The diversion of general aviation activity to other airports can be analyzed. Procedures for the determination of the costs of peak and non-peak airport use by air carriers, air commuters and general aviation are developed. The methodology can be used to assess the financial impact of maintaining high demand peaks on investment in airport facilities. Costs imposed by private general aviation upon the air carrier sector at the large hubs can be determined.
