ATA Direct Operating Cost Formula for Transport Aircraft 660280
Estimation of aircraft operating expense for airline operation is becoming increasingly complex. The ATA Standard Method of Estimating Comparative Direct Operating Costs of Transport Airplanes, last revised in 1960, is again under study for revision. When revised it should provide a more useable tool to the industry in analyzing the economics of competitive aircraft. Although considerably refined it will necessarily retain most of the limitations of the present edition - limitations that are inherent in any standardized method of this nature.
