Abstract:

The method as applied to an all-weather landing system concludes the following Additional demand leading to increased revenues to air carriers, 11,500,000 cost savings to air carriers, 9,379,000 cost savings to general aviation, 292,000 value of accidents prevented, 3,791,000. Since the annual operating costs of an all-weather landing system were not available, the annual net return of this ATC improvement was not calculated. A further conclusion based upon a detailed study of the installation of all-weather landing systems at 22 airports a stratified sample of all approach control airports in the United States shows that 50 of the total dollar benefits would be realized if installations were made at only 14 airports.
