The report describes the analysis done to define the terminal area ATC implications of implementing improved short-haul air transportation in a complex metroplex area. As the short-haul system for the time period in question 1976-1980 is not yet defined in detail, figures as to demand and airports to be used were not available. In lieu of that information, a scenario appraoch was taken to determine the terminal area ATC implications of improving short-haul air transportation through the use of future short-haul aircraft using secondary airports, a central business district airport, and separate short-haul runways at one large hub airport. Situations were selected which would place stress on the terminal area ATC system and provide some insight as to the adequacy of present NASAFAA programs. New York and Los Angeles were chosen as the metroplex areas to be examined. Hypothetical terminal area structures, based on both radar vectoring and area navigation, are described.
