Abstract:

The Local Flow Traffic Management order DOTFAA 7110.72, dated 15 November 1976, provided for the establishment of local procedures, at designated airports 16 initially, that would assist aircraft operators in minimizing fuel usage. These local procedures would be predicted on the aircraft performing a profile descent in conjunction with en route metering. This report presents the results of a field data collection and analysis of arrival traffic flows into the Atlanta-Hartsfield International Airport. The purpose of the analysis was to quantify the effect of traffic flow on runway utilization and to identify avoidable delays. Recommendations to improve the flow of traffic are also discussed.
