Abstract:

This study investigates the feasibility of quantifying terminal area delay from the measurement of departure and arrival elapsed times. Elapsed time data were obtained on all fixed wing itinerant flights occurring at Philadelphia International Airport, Philadelphia, Pa., and Byrd Field, Richmond, Va., during a 10 day period in May. The report describes the behavior of the elapsed time data obtained, discusses the use of elapsed time data as a measure of NAS terminal performance, and makes some recommendations regarding the initiation of a national terminal performance measurement system.
