BENEFITS OF MLS GUIDANCE FOR CURVED APPROACHES. VOLUME II. OPERATIONAL BENEFITS FOR NEW YORK AIRPORTS
Projected benefits of curved approaches during marginal VFR and IFR weather conditions provided by implementing MLS at LaGuardia and Kennedy are investigated. 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.
