Abstract:

This final regulatory evaluation examines the potential impacts of rules to be applied to aircraft operations at Washington National Airport. These rules are part of the overall policy toward the development of Washington National Airport and Dulles International Airport. The alternative economic impacts on airlines, passengers, communities and the FAA of imposing passenger ceilings, operations quotas, landing fees, perimeter rules, curfews, and noise restrictions under various scenarios are assessed in this evaluation, and the final rule is specifically addressed in the final Chapter. The quantifiable impacts of this rule are estimated at a 27 million net cost to society, but this net cost is believed to be outweighed by benefits which cannot be measured. Author
