A Hub Operator's View of Small Aircraft Operations 780562

The formal definition of a Hub Airport, according to federal authorities, is an airport which enplanes over .05 percent of the total enplaned domestic airline passenger traffic in the United States during a given year.
Hub Airports may be subdivided into categories of Small, Medium, and Large Hubs and these category classifications are dependent upon the number of passengers enplaned.
As advances are made in airport design and air traffic control techniques, it may be expected that small aircraft, reciprocating engine aircraft of less than 12 500 lb, can be better assimilated into the environment of a Hub Airport without unduly burdening the total aircraft operating system.
