  • Abstract:
    The primary objectives of this study were to (1) provide a framework for viewing the general aviation (GA) aircraft fleet, which would relate airborne avionics equipment to the capability for an aircraft to perform in the National Airspace System, and (2) within this framework, to portray the types of aircraft common to the GA fleet in terms of descriptive information on the aircraft. To provide the framework, capability groups of avionics equipment were designed and translated into aircraft capability to perform certain functions in the airspace system. Two types of groups evolved: hierarchical groups consist of avionics equipment meeting FAA requirements for flying in different airspace segments, in different conditions and for landing at different classes of airports; non-hierarchical groups consist of avionics equipmeny which give an aircraft additional capability, but which are not required equipment according to FAA regulations. Once the framework was developed, the GA fleet, as represented by the 1974 Aircraft Statistical Master File, was distributed among the capability groups, and its characteristics. This report presents the methodologies used in the analyses, statistical tables and other results.
