Abstract:

The report describes the methodology used in the construction of a three-dimensional aircraft movement operating in the Los Angeles Basin Area. From data obtained, the Los Angeles Basin Air Traffic Model of 1972 was constructed. The model contains approximately 80 VFR flight operations, and represents a particular time period of nonpeak aircraft operations which occurred during a three-hour period on the 20th of August 1972. The purpose of the traffic sample is to develop a standard model to test future air traffic systems and equipment. Since most air traffic operation models are generally made from IFR-controlled operations, this is the first of a series of air traffic models that include both IFR and VFR operations.
