A study that examines the use of aircraft as wind sensors in a terminal area for real-time wind estimation in order to improve aircraft trajectory prediction is presented in this paper. We describe not only different sources in the aircraft systems that provide the variables needed to derivate the wind velocity but the capabilities which allow us to present this information for air traffic management applications. Based on wind speed samples from aircraft landing at Madrid-Barajas airport, a… CONTINUE READING
