AIRCRAFT EMISSION FACTORS

In order to perform useful air quality analysis it is necessary to have the most accurate emission factor data available. This report provides updated aircraft engine emission factors and a sample of the calculation methodology used in obtaining these numbers. Modal emission factors have been calculated for a number of gas turbine and piston aircraft engines. Emission factors per aircraft per landing take-off cycle have been calculated for representative aircraft- engine combinations. This group includes commercial jet transports, business jets, turboprops and general aviation piston aircraft.
