This paper was written at the request of the FAA Management Steering Group on System CapacityAirport Capacity in an effort to answer the recurring question why should the FAA invest resources in the development and maintenance of models It summarizes the FAAs requirements for modeling capability to analyze the issues of capacity, delay, noise and fuel burn. It concludes that there is a continuing need for such models and an additional need for airspace models to address these issues in a complex terminal environment. The paper includes a detailed summary of those models related to capacity and delay which are currently owned by the FFA.
