Abstract:

This report describes an investigation of the probable effect of selected TCA implementation upon general aviation operations. The results are obtained from an analysis of historical time series data as well as current traffic survey data. The specific findings were the establishment of a TCA either Group I or Group II does not appear to dramatically affect the total number of airport operations attributable to general aviation aircraft the presence of a TCA at a large hub airport is accompanied by a marked shift towards the more sophisticated, more expensive, primarily business oriented aircraft overflight and secondary operations are not obviously affected by the presence or absence of a TCA and the profile of general aviation overflight and secondary operations shows no correlation with the presence or type of TCA.
