CONCEPTS FOR DETERMINATION OF LONGITUDINAL SEPARATION STANDARDS ON FINAL APPROACH

The concept of a longitudinal separation standard on final approach requires precise definitions in order to develop an analytical structure. These are developed in this paper with a view toward identifying the relationships between separation standards and the variables describing the final approach environment. This provides a basis for systematic evaluation of changes in separation standards due to changes in the environment, particularly through Engineering and Development products. Analytical relationships are developed primarily for IFR conditions, represented by strict adherence to all applicable ATC rules and procedures. For modeling purposes, relationships are also developed for 'standards' for VFR conditions, represented by visual approaches from an IFR flight plan.
