1 General Aviation Economic Footprint – Measurement ATAC 2007 Annual Meeting and Tradeshow World Trade and Convention Centre, Halifax, NS November 4 th, 2007

2 2  Electronic Collection of Air Transportation Statistics (ECATS) at Transport Canada (TC)  Phase 1 – Collecting from the commercial carriers flying within/from/to Canada  Phase 2 – Collecting data from the general aviation sector Presentation Outline

3 3 ECATS Phase I Objectives Commercial Air Carriers  Improve level of completeness  263 carrier reporting  covering more than 98 % of traffic in Canada  Reduce data reporting burden and costs  For airlines:  minimizes effort to support data reporting  improves filing efficiency  For Transport Canada:  no manual input as data is received in electronic format  validation is automated 3 primary objectives for air operational transportation statistics were:  Improve timeliness of available statistics  Major Airlines: from 24 hours to 1 month  Regional/Local Airlines: within 1 month after close of quarter

4 4  Industry  Reduced reporting burden/costs  Data availability:  Electronic aggregated data available to all parties (with confidentiality provisions):  cannot derive a carrier’s market share  written permission from carrier before their data can be released to airports/CAC/ATAC  Single source of information reduces legal and other costs  Government  Timely data to help with:  policy development and decision making  monitoring financial health of carriers and the air industry  Improvement of analytical capability for programs  Example: Airport Capital Assistance Program (ACAP), airport rent payments, security charges Benefits

5 5  Data elements targeted by Phase 2  General Aviation  Origin and Destination Passengers (O/D)  Air Cargo ECATS Phase II - Scope

6 6  Obtain data to help government and air transportation stakeholders:  Get an overall precise measure of the industry’s:  Importance  Contribution  Health  Operators  Better reflect and acknowledge General Aviation in:  Policy and programs developments  Planning  Help stakeholders in:  Planning (identifying opportunities, allocating resources)  Tackling issues General Aviation - Objectives

7 7  General Aviation:  According to the Transport Canada Aviation Statistics Group - The operation of aircraft(s) by individuals, companies or government entities for purposes other than commercial passenger and/or cargo transport for remuneration including leisure, business, aerial work and instructional flying.  Categories to be looked at:  Corporate/Personal Business Aviation  Specialty flying (Industrial, aerial work)  Flight Training  Maintenance/ Essential services (Natural Resources, Medivac)  Private including very light jet (VLJ)  Recreational including very light jets, ultra-lights, balloons, gliders and other private planes  Government – public service, military  Experimental General Aviation - Definition

8 8  Assessment of the GA industry to gain better understanding  LPS consulting firm:  Defining GA universe  Determining what data is available in industry  Determining technical capabilities of GA stakeholders  Roundtable discussion with the industry on March 1 st, 2007 in Ottawa  Conducting environmental scan for other GA data collection projects Stakeholder and data element universe unclear  Consultant’s report was completed on March 31, 2007  TC-Civil Aviation is involved in this process. General Aviation - Study

9 9 General Aviation – Collection Methods  Webservices :  Direct connection between systems  No manual input necessary  TC website  Web Upload: upload of a document such as excel  Web Form: completion of a standard on-line form  Annual Airworthiness Information Report  Exploring possibility of adding a section to this pre-existing mandatory form  Organisational web page  Exploring possibility of putting form on ATAC’s website

10 10  Flight schools data presently being collected by TC:  Number of flight schools in Canada  Location of flight schools  Number of licences issued in Canada  Hours flown to some extent  Information is used for the measure of trends General Aviation Data Elements Already Collected

11 11 Proposed data elements that could be collected (data elements and frequency to be determined) * Elements already collected in the AAIR  Time period  Flight School Information:  Owner(s), company name, base location (airport*/city*/province*)  Activity type:  flight training, other  Aircraft Information:  make*/model*  Registration mark*/tail number  Max seats available  Maximum take-off weight *  Trip information  Top 10 airports flown to  Hours flown (flight training*/other*)  Number of cycles (local/transborder)  Longest trip  Average distance  Revenue/non-revenue/total passengers/cargo on board (If applicable I.e. when flying other than training)  Fuel consumption  Expenditures ($) :  fuel/maintenance/other General Aviation - Data Elements

12 12 Example of data that could be collected: *All data fictional Time Period (from/to) 2007/01/01 – 2007/03/31 Owner(s), Company Name: John and Jane Sky, Sky Flight School and Sightseeing Location: Carp Airport, Ottawa, Ontario Activity Type SightseeingFlight training Aircraft Information Cessna 152 (C152) Registration Mark C-XXXX Max Seats Available 22 Max Take-off Weight 725 kg Top 10 Airport flown to YRP, YPQYRP, YOW, YTA, YPQ Hours Flown 2360 Cycles: Local/U.S./Total 0/10/1048/2/50 Longest trip (km) Average distance (km) Rev/Non-Rev/Total Pass. 10/0/10NA Fuel (litre) $ Spent Fuel $375$900 $ Spent maintenance $200$750 $ Spent Other $500$2,500 General Aviation - Data Elements

13 13  Assess the importance of each GA component  Understand the GA contribution to Canadian economy  Help the GA industry to better recognize its own contribution  Ensure GA’s prosperity by defending it in the following situations and others:  Defend at ICAO environment proposal  Protect against proposed U.S. policy which would limit entry points into the U.S.  Ensure GA maintains the access it needs to congested airports and airspace, while also ensuring that small airports have accurate data for planning operations (Small Airport Viability concerns)  Guide future policy development on GA with respect to economy, environment, safety and security. General Aviation Purpose of Data Collection

14 14  Keys to Success :  Collaboration from all the different GA stakeholders (government/industry/private individuals)  Submission of data to TC is free and time efficient  Sharing of information between TC and the GA industry  Privacy of data is essential at all time  Project to be completed by March 31, 2009 To Have a Good GA Economic Footprint – An efficient collection of reliable data is an essential first step General Aviation – How to Succeed
