Ground and flight deck alternatives for terminal merging, sequencing, and spacing for arrivals

Abstract

Aircraft approach the terminal area on different arrival paths, merge and ultimately arrive at capacity-constrained runways on the ground. Upon entering the terminal area, air traffic control manually controls the aircraft in order to merge and sequence arrivals on different paths, and establish longitudinal spacing between aircraft. These operations are… (More)
