Matters of concern to the commuter airline managements are discussed, and include the changed market place with the larger airlines tussling for a competitive edge, and the means of financing new aircraft and funding training and paperwork. Other areas of government and congressional concern are the implementation of joint fare schedules with certificated carriers, the development of subsidy and loan programs, formulation of new commuter aircraft certification rules, and the smooth transition of the industry into new FAR part 135 operating rules covering commuter and air taxi operations. Despite all problems, the US commuter airlines are expecting soaring growth this year and will probably be the fastest-growing segment of the total national air transportation system.
