Abstract:

The study estimates aircraft and passenger delays that will be encountered at 30 large terminals during the period 1976 through 2000. Delay estimates are prepared for two scenarios--1 no change in existing runway capacity and 2 changes in future runway capacity resulting from the introduction of the Upgrated Third Generation Air Traffic Control System UG3RD. Delay estimates were obtained from application of a deterministic, steady state runway queuing model. Results of this research were incorporated in a cost-benefit analysis of the UG3RD ATC system.
