AN ANALYSIS OF NAVY AIRSPACE USAGE (PROJECT BLUE AIR)
Published Date: June 1, 1974
Demands for more airspace and increasing activity in airspace already in use are growing while the amount of airspace available remains fixed. There are already conflicts between civil, general, and military aviation, and it is generally believed that further conflicts are inevitable. Current airspace use over the continental United States and projected use through 1980 are examined in this study. The needs for airspace for naval training are determined, and the effects on these needs of placing more and more airspace under positive control are weighed. Several recommendations concerning naval training policies and both general and civil aviation are made.
