The Metropolitan Transportation Commission MTC is updating the Regional Airport Plan for the nine-county San Francisco Bay Area. The purpose of the analysis is to assist MTC to determine the extent to which the airspace serving the air carrier and general aviation airports in the region will be able to accommodate future aviation activity. The analysis is divided into two parts a review of the organization of the Bay Area Airspace and an assessment of airspace capacity. In the review of the organization of the Bay Area airspace, PMMCo. evaluated existing conditions and data on 1 jurisdictional relationships between different elements of the airspace system, 2 air traffic flows, and 3 airspace interactions between airports. The results of the evaluation are described in Chapter I. PMMCo. evaluated alternative combinations of aircraft demand and airspace-airport systems. The PMMCo. airspace capacity model was applied to estimate the capacity of the Bay Area airspace under a variety of different operating conditions. The results of the capacity assessment are described in Chapter II.
