Abstract:

The report presents the data essential to the determination of minimum runway spacings, including probability of collision data, normal operating zone data, and blunder recovery data, and develops the techniques used to generate this data. Probability density functions, which describe the location errors of aircraft operating under IFR conditions, were used to generate the probability of collision data and normal operating zone data. The Fokker-Planck equation was used to generate the lateral error probability density functions. Generation of the blunder recovery data was accomplished using a parametric variation on the pertinent system parameters.
