MONTE CARLO SIMULATION OF VOR/DME HOLDING PROCEDURES. BASIC NOTIONS 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 agreed on by the international authorities for the construction of the airspace to be reserved for a safe execution of these holding procedures. A method for the construction of holding areas of different probabilities is described in which the simulation of flight paths in a computer using the Monte Carlo technique has 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 safe and economical use of airspace.
