AN ADVANCED AIR TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT CONCEPT BASED ON EXTENSIONS OF THE UPGRADED THIRD GENERATION ATC SYSTEM. SYSTEM B: AIRPORT CAPACITY ANALYSIS

The report gives the analysis of IFR runway capacity constraints for twenty nine primary high density airports. These airports were examined during the course of the Advanced Air Traffic Management System B study. The mathematical model used to determine IFR runway capacity takes into account the runway configuration, approach control delivery precision, aircraft performance characteristics, aircraft safety separation standards, runway occupancy rule, departure/arrival spacing and departure/departure spacing. The analysis shows that thirteen of the twenty nine airports will be capacity limited in 1995.
