Today, there are very limited flight operations data being collected at Florida’s 82 non-towered airports. Previous work has been completed on this subject at a national level. The Transportation Research Board ACRP Report 129 provides national guidance on evaluating methods for counting aircraft operations at non-towered airports. However, based on the unique requirements at Florida airports and based on the magnitude of aviation activity and the number of general aviation airports here, ASO has developed this project to document the technology and equipment options as well as to establish a generally-accepted methodology for collecting this information. This project will examine the techniques and technologies that can be employed here in Florida and how these can be shared, procured, or provided. In addition, various methodologies will be compared and analyzed in the Florida context. Testing and sampling methods will also be examined and discussed. These findings will be documented in a final report that will be used by the ASO and Florida’s airports to better prepare operations counts.
