Abstract : In view of the diversity of the existing aircraft systems, it is necessary to select optimal variants of these systems for the performance of specific (standard) operations; here optimality is construed as the solution of transport problems at minimum expenditure of labor and equipment. The selection of aircraft systems and the determination of the quantitative ratio between various systems of this kind must be carried out early in the design stage to assure a rational distribution of capital investments as well as to accelerate the production of the necessary types of aircraft. In this connection, certain general indicators of the economic effectiveness of aircraft are considered. These criterions may be divided into three groups: technical, technological and economic. The technical and technological indicators condition the level of transport efficiency of the aircraft systems and, together with the economic indicator, they determine the criterion of the economic effectiveness of the system, namely operating cost. The term 'operating cost' in theory can be applied only with respect to specific aircraft systems, e.g. to agricultural aviation, which takes a direct part in the production process, to transport aviation, which serves production etc. (Author)
