The report describes the progress made in Phase I of this study. The effort was divided into three major areas airport planning studies was a user oriented effort to define the requirements for planning tools. Surveys of potential users were made which helped define the format for the Capacity Handbook to be developed later. Definitions of airfield capacity and delay were refined data collection, involved gathering of operational information relating to airfield performance at fourteen U.S. airports and models for determining airfield capacity and delay were also developed. For computational efficiency it was decided to use analytical techniques for capacity determination. However, the delay model necessarily had to use Monte Carlo simulation, and the appropriate logic was developed. Volume 2 consists of supporting appendices. Author
