The central task of a 1980 workshop on the role of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in aeronautics was to examine the relationship of NASA's research capabilities to the state of U.S. aviation and to make recommendations about NASA's future role in aeronautics. The findings and recommendations of the Panel on General Aviation, defined as all aviation except military and lay carrier operations, are presented under the following categories: (1) Status and Dimensions of General Aviation; (2) Research and Technology Needs in General Aviation; (3) Evolution of NASA's Role in General Aviation Aeronautics; (4) NASA's Role in General Aviation Aeronautics - 1980 and Beyond; (5) Conclusions; and (6) Recommendations. Definitions of roles and disciplines are included in an appendix. (Author/DS)
