Abstract:

In 1988, the Federal Aviation Administration FAA established the Microwave Landing System MLS Program Office and initiated a series of projects designed to demonstrate the operational, environmental and economic benefits of the MLS. These projects are scheduled to be completed by the end of 1991. The results of all these efforts will provide the FAA, Congress and industry with the data necessary to evaluate the future role of the MLS in the National Airspace System NAS. The results of the first simulation conducted under the project titled Evaluation of Complex MLS Procedures in Multi-Airport Environments are presented in this report. This initial experiment involved LaGuardia LGA, John F. Kennedy JFK, and Newark EWR airports in the New York Terminal Control Area.
