DELAYS TO AIRCRAFT SERVICED BY THE GLIDE-PATH

This paper considers some of the statistical service, flow and delay problems which arriving aircraft encounter in the glide-path of an airport runway. Mathematical expressions for service time distributions and delays are formulated in terms of the probability distributions of spacings between discharges of the glide-path. In this paper the author also considers some numerical solutions of the average glide-path separation as a function of w, the verage delay to arriving aircraft.Xo, a minimum glide separation and lamda the average Poisson flow rate of landing aircraft.
