Abstract:

This report updates the work first carried out by P.P. Scott on North Atlantic data for 1967-data for 1973 is now examined. Relationships are found between the number of flights in a day and measures of the occupancies of the tracks and flight levels which are adjacent to those of a typical aircraft. These results are used to construct a flight request pattern required as input data to a simulation model which forecasts the density with which aircraft will be packed into the North Atlantic track system as the traffic flow increases in future years. Repeated runs of the model with a series of traffic flow rates have enabled the packing density to be expressed as a function of traffic intensity. Author
