This study developed a computer-assisted method for determining LOGAIR route structures. A Mixed-integer model was used to develop the route structures. The objective was to minimize contract cost which was expressed as a function of miles flown and landings. The Honewell LP6000 package was used to solve the model. The computer-assisted method was tested for FY 75 and FY 76. The computer-assisted method solutions were compared to the routes used by AFLC during FY 75 and FY 76. The results show that the computer-assisted method obtained an estimated savings of approximately 2 million in FY 75 and 1 million in FY 76. The writers conclude that the computer method is a useful tool for developing route structures and recommend the procedure be adopted by AFLC. Author
