Question concerning control tower equation
- From: Richard.Stein@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I have a question about equation that
the FAA uses (or use to use) for determining if a control tower would be
considered for an airport.
Background - Lynchburg Regional Airport
is losing its contract control tower next month. We're currently
examining several options, including asking the state to use our entitlement
funding to continue to operate the control tower for a few months until
a permanent solution is found. One of the questions from the Aviation
Board was "Why are Air Carrier operations more important in determining
if we get to keep our control tower"?
One piece of the answer is an equation
I remember from college that used airline operations, general aviation
operations and some other operations to get a result. If the result
was over a certain number - you were more likely to get a tower.
That class was over 25 years ago - I'm
glad I remember the equation at all.
My question: What was the equation
for determining having a control tower?
Any comments would be appreciated, also
feel free to email or call with any questions or comments about the tower
