Abstract:

The report describes the results of a detailed study which was conducted to determine the potential economic effects of helicopter IFR operations on the scheduled and non-scheduled helicopter operators, considering all pertinent factors and it is concluded that 1 Scheduled helicopter operators would gain potential economic benefit from an IFR capability in varying degrees, dependent on locale and types of equipment operated. 2 Generally, non-scheduled operators would gain no economic benefit from an IFR capability, at present, because of the types of equipment operated and services performed. 3 An IFR capability, alone, will not substantially alter the subsidy situation of the scheduled helicopter operator.
