  Aviation Forecasts 2001-2015   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
When combined with the economic slowdown during 2001, the impact was a significant drop in passenger traffic at all Canadian airports and in particular at airports with significant transborder traffic.
The downward trend in total aircraft movements is expected to continue into 2002, being exacerbated by the September terrorist attacks on the United States in 2001 and as a direct consequence of the poor performance of the economy that started in late 2000.
As an indicator of aviation activity, the term "Licensed Pilots" refers to the number of pilot licences in force at the end of a given calendar year.

 NTSB - Press Release   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Because the crashes of September 11, 2001 were the results of criminal activity, those crashes are included in the totals for scheduled U.S. airline accidents and fatalities, but are not used for the purpose of accident rate computation.
General aviation was the only category of air transportation to report an increase in its accident rate, which is attributable to the fact that fewer hours were flown by general aviation aircraft in 2001 than in 2000.
As with 2001 statistics, accidents caused by illegal acts in previous years were not used when calculating the accident rate for that year.

 Aviation, November 2001 from Holland & Knight LLP
Washington, D.C. The U.S. Congress and various branches of the federal government continue to be busy with aviation matters, with more than a little controversy attached to their actions.
The Under Secretary will be appointed for a five-year term, like the FAA Administrator, and will have virtually unlimited powers to establish security procedures not only for aviation but also for other types of transportation.
The Under Secretary will have responsibility for day-to-day screening activities of U.S. air passengers, must develop hiring and training standards for aviation security screeners, and is tasked with hiring and training all required airport security screeners.

 President’s Forum: Protecting Aviation Funding, March 2001   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
This brought such a cry of protest from all sides of the aviation industry that OMB wisely decided to look elsewhere for potential savings—for the moment.
OMB’s proposal was a clarion call for aviation support groups and members of Congress who had worked hard to make aviation infrastructure improvements a high priority during the last congressional session.
The measure Congress approved to fund the improvements, AIR 21, also established the principle that revenues collected from aviation users and placed into the Airport and Airways Trust Fund should be fully spent for aviation purposes and not diverted to other uses—a position ALPA has espoused for many years.

 AIN Online July 2001: Aviation insurance industry airs concerns   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
This prediction came at the 25th annual Aviation Insurance Association conference held in Phoenix in May. In attendance were more than 440 aviation insurance professionals, including agents, brokers, claims personnel and underwriters, from seven countries on three continents.
The four-person panel discussed the Bush Cabinet in terms of aviation disposition, especially focusing on Secretary of Transportation Norman Mineta, whom the Cabinet concluded would be inclined to support the “continuation of all airports,” and Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao, who may become a key player in resolving strikes in the aviation industry.
The court found that “a flight manual is an integral ‘part’ of the general aviation aircraft product,” but the plaintiffs could state a claim only if they could show that the specific information leading to the crash had been revised or deleted.
