            Table Notes:

            Row and column summations may differ from printed totals due to rounding error.

            The small number of aircraft in some of the 'other' categories (e.g., "Piston: Other," "Turbojet: Other") may result in relatively high standard
            errors for estimates of the number of active aircraft and hours flown. For this reason estimates reported for 'other' categories may vary
            greatly from year to year and should be evaluated with caution.
