BENEFITS OF MLS GUIDANCE FOR CURVED APPROACHES. VOLUME II. OPERATIONAL BENEFITS FOR NEW YORK AIRPORTS

It is shown that the operational flexibility due to MLS contributes the following benefits: increases in capacity at LGA during IFR and marginal VFR conditions, reductions in airport noise exposure over populated areas around JFK and LGA, reductions in NASCOM delays at LGA and savings in operating costs for airlines by terminal route reductions.
