Abstract:

Position data on aircraft flying Instrument Landing System ILS approaches from 40 nautical miles nmi down to runway threshold were collected at Los Angeles International Airport LAX between November 26, 1991 and April 25, 1992. The purpose of the data collection was to provide an accurate database of navigational performance of aircraft flying ILS approaches at distances between 10 nmi and 32 nmi. Aircraft position data were collected using the in- place LAX surveillance primary and secondary radars. The data were reduced and analyzed at the Federal Aviation Administration FAA Technical Center by ACD- 340 personnel. The discussion in this Final Report concerns the accuracy of the collected position data and possible sources of error in the data collection.
