Abstract:

This report contains forecasts of aviation activity at Federal Aviation Administration facilities. These include airports with FAA control towers, air route traffic control centers, and flight service stations. Detailed forecast were made for the major users of the National Aviation System air carriers, air taxicommuters, military and general aviation. The forecasts have been prepared to meet the budget and planning needs of the constituent units of the FAA and to provide information that can be used by state and local authorities, the aviation industry, and the general public. The lethargy of the domestic and international economies over the past year have caused the aviation industry to experience its worst year ever. However, the outlook for the 12-year forecast period is for moderate economic growth, stable real fuel prices, and moderate inflation. Based on these assumptions, aviation activity by fiscal year 2003 is forecast to increase by 25.7 percent at towered airports, 28.3 percent air route traffic control centers, and 4.8 percent in flight services performed. Hours flown by general aviation are forecast to increase 15.1 percent and domestic revenue passenger miles RPMs are forecast to increase 54.9 percent, with scheduled international RPMs forecast to increase by 112.8 percent and regionalcommuter RPMs forecast to increase by 146.5 percent.
