Abstract:

Development and maintenance of the Federal airport and airway system are authorized by the Airport and Airway Development Act of 1970 as amended through 1976. Elements of existing legislation will expire in 1980. The purpose of this report is to analyze airport and airway system finances as a guide for developing post-1980 development and financial programs. Estimates are provided of 1978 and 1987 airport and airway system costs. System costs are allocated to users under two alternative procedures providing a range of cost responsibility. Aviation tax revenues are projected for 1978 and 1987 and are compared with allocated user costs. Several changes in aviation user taxes are evaluated as methods of aligning future airport and airway tax contributions with cost responsibility. Author
