USER DELAY COST MODEL FOR A TERMINAL CONTROL AREA

This paper is a description of a Monte Carlo simulation of delays to the aircraft-using community caused by facility outage, weather, and schedule intensity. The Boston Terminal Control Area (TCA) was used as a guide in the model's development, but the input parameter set can be changed to model any TCA. The model was developed as an analytic tool for the assessment of the impact of facilities availability on user delays; it permits imputation of user delay to variations of facility outage, weather, schedule intensity, airport layout and facility configuration, and air control standards.
