Since the introduction of turbojet passenger aircraft in 1959, the FAA, the airport operators, and the airlines have worked to establish a program to identify the operational safety and performance standards for this new aircraft. Through the offices of the Air Transport Association, the airlines have developed and published the Airline Industry Survey of Airports to aid the FAA in evaluating a sponsor's request for federal aid for airport development. There have been some problems in securing federal funds for airport improvement, but with a properly administered trust fund, airport development can become a reality.
