Abstract : This report presents avionics statistics for the 1978 general aviation (GA) aircraft fleet and is the fifth in a series titled General Aviation Avionics Statistics. The statistics are presented in a capability group framework which enables one to relate airborne avionics equipment to the capability for a GA aircraft to function in the National Airspace System. The word 'capability' is used in this report to mean in what segments of the airspace an aircraft can fly, under what flight rules it can fly, and at what airports it can land. The framework permits the GA fleet to be divided into groups according to their capabilities as dictated by the avionics configurations of the aircraft. Differences in various characteristics of the aircraft are examined among the capability groups. The FAA's Sample File of results from the 1978 GA Activity and Avionics Survey is the source of all the statistical data used in this report. (Author)
