In support of the current final rulemaking action for aircraft emission standards, the cost effectiveness of controlling hydrocarbon (HC) exhaust emissions from general aviation piston-powered aircraft (P1) is evaluated. Houtman previously evaluated the cost effectiveness of controlling this source for HC and carbon monoxide (CO). Recent analyses by Jordan and FAA have indicated that these aircraft are not major contributors to violations of the National Ambient Air Quality Standard for CO which adversely affect the public health and welfare. Although HC emissions from general aviation are also small when compared to many other sources, the oxidant problem is so widespread that all reasonable controls should be implemented. Based on this premise, several potentially cost-effective control strategies for these aircraft are evaluated to determine if reductions in HC from general aviation piston-powered aircraft are justified.
