Overview

CountOps Main.jpg
CountOps is an FAA automated system that utilizes data from National Offload Program (NOP), STARS and Common ARTS to provide hourly counts of air traffic activity at TRACONs, towers, and airports. It includes counts for more than 2,000 towers and airports. CountOps does not include operations for Honolulu Airport (HNL) or TRACON (Honolulu Control Facility – HCF).

CountOps contains information on arrivals and departures by hour and detail on individual records. Daily totals for official OPSNET facilities align to OPSNET counts of operations. Standards for counting operations are based on criteria as outlined in FAA Order 7210.3 Chapter 12, and the “Classification Count” as outlined in FAA Order 7210.57 and associated Facility Classification Standard.

CountOps data can be viewed on the FAA Operations & Performance Data Web site.
