ASPM Cancellations Manual
OverviewASPM calculates cancellations by analyzing the best estimate from the following record types:
- TFMS Flight Plans for commercial flights that are cancelled and not refiled
- Scheduled flights that never flew
- ASQP Cancellations, reported approximately six weeks after the end of the month
The best estimate of cancelled arrivals is then used to calculate the Completion Rate.
ASPM Cancellations data can be viewed on the FAA Operations & Performance Data Web site.
For more information about the ASPM system, see Aviation System Performance Metrics (ASPM).
