Abstract:

The study determines the costs and benefits resulting from implementation of Category II and III all-weather systems during the 1967-1980 time period, and establishes the optimum practical ground-airborne implementation schedule, including the priority-ranked order for equipping forty individual airports. The implementation schedule calls for the following equipment effectiveness 1 Category II by 1970, 2 Category IIIab by 1975, 3 Category IIIc by 1980. The cost benefits, as conservatively quantified in this study, show in general summary terms that 1 Category II has immediate by 1970 net economic benefits. 2 Category IIIa and IIIb show nearly the same results and provide net economic benefits if more than twenty-three airports are implemented by 1975. 3 Category IIIc will produce net economic benefits only if the majority of the forty airports are implemented by 1980.
