This report presents airport vicinity aircraft emissions data for HC, CO and NOx at selected commercial and general aviation airports. The data represents an updating of calculated aircraft emissions for recent years and estimates of future aircraft emissions. Operations by individual aircraft models are scrutinized in detail. Breakdowns of operations by air carriers, air taxis, general aviation and auxiliary power units are included and the emissions from each are summed to provide estimates of total pollutants dispersed. Despite a general trend toward more operations, the total emissions at the commercial airports decrease as a result of a changing fleet mix with more modern engines and the advent of promulgated and proposed regulatory standards. With increased operations at general aviation airports, emissions will continue to increase without the imposition of regulatory standards because uncontrolled modern engines emit substantially the same pollutants as older piston engine designs.
