Abstract:

The Air Force has established goals for the control of aircraft engine exhaust emissions. Neither the F-15 nor A-10 aircraft engines completely meet these goals even though they are much less polluting than the F-4E and A-7 aircraft they often replace. This study compares air quality impacts of all four aircraft and shows the relative improvements possible with a modificationretrofit program for the F-15 and A-10 aircraft. Significant improvement is obtainable only for the A-10 hydrocarbon emissions. A five step analytical methodology is presented and can be adapted to nearly any aircraft related air quality assessment problem. Author
