DOUGLAS J. WILSON BA MSc(Econ) MBA, ASSOCIATE, ECONOMICS

Doug Wilson has 30 years of experience in commercial aviation economics and market planning. He started his career in Air Canada (Cargo), performing work in fleet planning, market analysis, and financial evaluations. As a management consultant, he has participated in projects in Canada, the United States, Caribbean, former Soviet Union and Southeast Asia. His greatest interest is in applying advanced quantitative techniques to problems of air transport management. Projects have involved passenger and cargo air service development for Toronto, Ottawa, Halifax, Moncton, Cleveland, Chicago, Washington, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Houston, Salt Lake City, Providence and over a dozen other communities. He helped establish the rationale for changes in the U.S.-U.K agreement, and the city filings in which he participated contributed to new intercontinental flights from Chicago, Washington, and Philadelphia. His discrete choice models of traffic distribution in multi-airport regions have served as the basis for large investments in facilities in New England, and recommendations on the Washington Reagan National Airport Perimeter Rule. In a project for Boeing, Mr. Wilson developed an econometric model for estimating the impact on traffic, employment and GDP of bilateral agreement liberalization for any arbitrary country-pair. Forecasting projects include general aviation at over 75 Canadian airports, and passenger/operations/fleet mix forecasts for Montreal, Ottawa, Providence, Baltimore, Barbados, Dallas/Fort Worth, Hanoi and Lithuania, and forecasts of ATC activity for Canada and the former Soviet Union. Mr. Wilson has spoken at the conferences of the FAA, Airports Council International, American Association of Airport Executives, and Transportation Research Board. He holds Bachelor and Masterís degrees in economics and a Master of Business Administration.
