International Council of Aircraft Owner and Pilot Associations
IAOPA Chicago Convention of 1944 Chicago Convention of 1944 Civil aviation meant airlines Civil aviation meant airlines IAOPA formed in 1962 IAOPA formed in 1962 ICAO Observers in 1964 ICAO Observers in 1964 Now 66 affiliates and 470,000 members worldwide. Now 66 affiliates and 470,000 members worldwide.
What Is General Aviation? All civil aviation except aerial work and commercial air transport
GA in ATS World aircraft fleets - World aircraft fleets - Airline – 26,000Airline – 26,000 GA – 370,000 (> 25,000 turbine aircraft)GA – 370,000 (> 25,000 turbine aircraft) GA provides 10% of IFR traffic - GA provides 10% of IFR traffic - But, up to 20% of ATS activityBut, up to 20% of ATS activity ATM is different for GA – ATM is different for GA – Airlines are predictable, stableAirlines are predictable, stable GA has no schedule, short notice opsGA has no schedule, short notice ops We are the ad hoc operators.We are the ad hoc operators.
Design for Performance Airspace – Airspace – Complex for VFR operationsComplex for VFR operations Non-standard airspace classificationsNon-standard airspace classifications Large TMAsLarge TMAs Procedure – Procedure – Lengthy, complex SIDs and STARsLengthy, complex SIDs and STARs Circuitous routingsCircuitous routings Long, low altitude terminal segmentsLong, low altitude terminal segments Vague VFR TMA access policy.Vague VFR TMA access policy.
Performance Measures ATS Provider – ATS Provider – Aircraft handled per sectorAircraft handled per sector IFR aircraft hours per controllerIFR aircraft hours per controller System delay hours per daySystem delay hours per day Controllers required per sectorControllers required per sector Revenue per employeeRevenue per employee The big picture….
Performance Measures ATS User – ATS User – Slot availabilitySlot availability Departure delaysDeparture delays Vertical deviation from requested/optimum flight levelVertical deviation from requested/optimum flight level Planned vs. actual flight timePlanned vs. actual flight time VFR access to complex airspaceVFR access to complex airspace The smaller view….
IFR – Whats Important Slot availability Slot availability Clearance availability Clearance availability Simplified departures Simplified departures Fly the plan Fly the plan Keep em high Keep em high Direct to the airport Direct to the airport All of these are measurable. All of these are measurable.
VFR – Whats Important Low-time pilots, basic aircraft equipment, little ground support Low-time pilots, basic aircraft equipment, little ground support OK in Class E, F and G airspace OK in Class E, F and G airspace Class B, C and D problematic, especially in poor weather Class B, C and D problematic, especially in poor weather Avoidance is sometimes impossible Avoidance is sometimes impossible Options – Options – Go around?Go around? Go under?Go under? None of the above?.None of the above?.
Economics The charges levied on international general aviation should be assessed in a reasonable manner, having regard to the cost of the facilities needed and used and the goal of promoting the sound development of international civil aviation as a whole.

Safety GA is different - GA is different - Less capableLess capable Often higher pilot workloadOften higher pilot workload Fewer optionsFewer options Our needs are different Our needs are different Put GA into your Safety Management Plan. Put GA into your Safety Management Plan.
ATM for GA If you cant measure it, If you cant measure it, you cant management it… you cant management it… Measure performance for the ad hoc flyers – IFR and VFR - Measure performance for the ad hoc flyers – IFR and VFR - Risk/threat analysisRisk/threat analysis Segmented cost - benefit analysisSegmented cost - benefit analysis Actively solicit input from Actively solicit input from all stakeholders all stakeholders Good performance begins with good planning. Good performance begins with good planning.
