AN EXTENSION OF THE THROUGHPUT RUNWAY CAPACITY METHODOLOGY TO INCLUDE MULTIPLE GLIDE PATH LENGTHS AND ANGLES

The report extends the single runway IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) capacity methodology developed in MTR-4102 to include multiple glide path lengths and angles. Particular emphasis was placed on examples which are representative of short-haul operations. Analysis was performed to indicate the sensitivity of the model to the glide path parameters, approach control system precision, separation standards, and approach speed mixes. A combination of altitude separation on the glide path is considered as a means of increasing capacity. (Author)
