Pre-Processing - Airgroup Definition

The 1st step in using this spreadsheet is to define the airgroup that the ship is intended to accomodate.  The tables below summarize the data collected to date on various carrier capable aircraft and a tab is included in the spreadsheet that allows the user to identify how many aircraft of each type that the ship is intended to carry.
