This report contains the Fiscal Years 1994-2005 Federal Aviation Administration FAA forecasts of aviation activity at FAA facilities. These include airports with FAA control towers, air route traffic control centers, and flight service stations. Detailed forecasts were made for the major users of the National Aviation System air carriers, air taxi commuters, 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 slow pace of the economic recovery in United States and economic recessions in several of the major world trade areas have caused the aviation industry to experience continued slow traffic growth. However, the outlook for the 12-year forecast period is for moderate economic growth, stable real fuel prices, and modest inflation. Based on these assumptions, aviation activity for fiscal year 2005 is forecast to increase by 22.6 percent at towered airports and 24.0 percent at air route traffic control centers. The general aviation active fleet is forecast to decline by 3.8 percent during the forecast period but increased utilization hours flown by aircraft results in a 12.0 percent increase in general aviation hours flown during the same period. Scheduled domestic revenue passenger miles RPMs are forecast to increase 55 percent, scheduled international RPMS are forecast to increase by 108 percent, and regionalcommuter RPMs are forecast to increase by 166 percent.
