what is general aviation
WHAT IS GENERAL AVIATION?
  • General Aviation is defined as all aviation other than military and commercial airlines
    • Private Operations
    • Charter Operations
    • Aerial Work Operations
  • Scope of General Aviation (In the U.S.)
    • Over 211,000 airplanes
    • Over 27 million flight hours
    • More than 5,000 communities rely exclusively
    • Directly contributes more than $41 billion
    • Shipments and Billings

FUTURE VISION OF GA AIRPLANES
  • Discussion Scenarios
    • Integrated “All-Glass” Cockpit
    • Very Light Jets
    • Supersonic Business Jets
  • Talking Points for Each Scenario
    • General Description
    • Challenges
    • Opportunities
integrated all glass cockpit
Integrated “All-Glass” Cockpit
  • Electronic display and control of all primary flight instrument and Nav/Com functions
    • Increased functionality and situational awareness
      • Improved Safety
      • Increased Ease of Use
    • 70%-85% of new piston-airplanes in 2005
integrated all glass cockpit cont
Integrated “All-Glass” Cockpit (Cont.)
  • Challenges
    • Ensure understanding of use and capabilities
    • Transition from traditional to “glass”
    • Transition from “glass” to “glass”
  • Opportunities
    • Training
      • Type-rating
      • FAA-Industry Training Standard (FITS)
    • Design
      • Standardize essential functions
        • GAMA Publication No. 12, Recommended Practices and Guidelines for an Integrated Cockpit/Flightdeck in a 14 CFR Part 23 (or equivalent) airplane
        • AC 23-23, Standardization Guide for Integrated Cockpits in Part 23 Airplanes

very light jets cont
Very Light Jets (Cont.)
  • Challenges and Opportunities
    • Part 23 Airworthiness Standards Not Appropriate
      • Special Conditions
      • FAA Aviation Rulemaking Committee Recommendation for Part 23 Amendment
    • Safety Considerations for Introduction of Very Light Jet Category Airplanes
      • Training standards (type rating)
        • Manufacturer required training and performance
        • Insurance company requirements
      • Other issues?
    • Safety Considerations for Potential “Air-Taxi”
      • Systems appropriate for large “fleet” operators
      • Other issues?
supersonic business jets
Supersonic Business Jets
  • Supersonic Business Jet (SSBJ) Could Be Technically Feasible in About 10 Years
    • Industry and government research indicates that technology barriers can be overcome
      • Noise reduced to sonic “swoosh” or “click”
    • A segment of the market will pay for speed
    • SSBJ Experience will be applied to transport
  • Several Manufacturers Evaluating SSBJ
    • Design principles
      • Operate in current NAS environment
      • Airport and ground support requirements equivalent to commercial airplanes
    • Must be able to operate globally
supersonic business jets cont
Supersonic Business Jets (Cont.)
  • Challenges
    • Regulatory Barriers to SSBJ Development
      • Supersonic flight not permitted over land
      • No supersonic noise standard
  • Opportunities
    • Establish performance-based noise standard for supersonic airplanes
      • Through ICAO, industry and authorities pursue efforts to identify acceptable perceived noise level
      • Critical to support SSBJ development (“target”)
    • Establish operational requirements for SSBJ
      • ICAO SARP
    • Replace regulatory prohibitions with performance and safety standards
