MONTE CARLO SIMULATIONS OF VOR/DME HOLDING PROCEDURES. BASIC IDEAS AND APPLICATIONS
Using DME in addition to VOR allows a better use of the airspace for holding procedures in civil aviation. As yet, there are no procedures for the construction of the airspace to be reserved for a safe execution of these holding procedures, which have been agreed by the international authorities. A method for the construction of holding areas of different probabilities is described, where the simulation of flight paths in a computer using the Monte-Carlo technique has a special importance. The simulation allows the application of an extensive and detailed error model. In addition, the locally different physical conditions may be taken into consideration. Both factors are most important for a safe and economical use of the airspace.
