The report presents forecasts of key indicators of aviation activity and of Federal Aviation Agency workload during the period fiscal years 1967- 1977. The report was prepared to meet the planning needs of the various offices and services of FAA for data concerning future trends in aviation activity. During this period significant changes are expected in the volume of air traffic activity and in the type of equipment that will be flying our domestic and international air routes. Although the report focuses on the period through fiscal year 1973 to provide forecasts required in the preparation of the FAA five-Year Program, forecasts for fiscal year 1977 were also prepared to meet long-range planning needs. Specific numerical forecasts were also included for each year from 1967 to 1973 to meet shorter term, fiscal and program planning requirements. It must be recognized, however, that year-to-year fluctuations are difficult to forecast precisely. To a considerable extent, therefore, the data reflect the trend or average conditions expected during the forecast period.
