Abstract:

Statistical service, flow and delay problems which arriving aircraft encounter in the glidepath of an airport runway, were studied. Mathematical expressions for service time distributions and delays are formulated in terms of the probability distributions of spacings between discharges of the glide-path. Numerical solu ions are considered for the average glidepath, separation as a function of the average delay to arriving aircraft, a minimum glide-path separation and the average Poisson flow rate of landing aircraft.
