ALASKAN AIR NAVIGATION REQUIREMENTS. VOLUME II. PART I. NEAR TERM BENEFITS ANALYSIS OF THE ALASKAN AIR NAVIGATION SYSTEM

This Volume (II) presents an analysis of the problems and near-term solutions related to Alaska's Air Navigation System. The needs of the air taxi operators and major intra-state scheduled air carriers are considered based on such figures of merit as enroute navigation gaps, traffic volume, landing probabilities and candidate navigation system characteristics. The study concludes that 6 VOR/DME's and 6 NDB/DME's would be adequate to satisfy most of Alaska's near-term enroute and terminal air navigation requirements, respectively. Recommended implementation sequences are provided for each combination of candidate NAVAID (NDB, NDB/DME, VOR, VOR/DME and TACAN) and application (enroute, approach and dual--enroute/approach).
