    Introduction: This study covers the design of ground facilities, or metroports, for a future form of short haul intercity air transportation, the VTOL Airbus system as described by previous M.I.T. Flight Transportation ...
  • Idris, Husni Rifat ([Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1994], 1994)
    Introduction: Air Traffic Control operations are described extensively in the ATC manuals such as the Airman's Information Manual [1] and the ATC Controller's Handbook [2]. Mathematical analysis has also been conducted for ...
  • Duchesne de Lamotte, Herve (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1981], 1981)
    This thesis investigates the Airline Fleet Assignment models which have been designed during the past 10 years within MIT's Flight Transportation Laboratory. Emphasis is placed on developing an interactive computer system, ...
  • Cohen, Dayl Arlene (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1985, 1985)
    Airlines, in the past, have had an important influence on airport operations through privileges granted them by the airport lease agreements. Airport administrators and sponsoring agencies have agreed to grant these ...
  • Vitek, Richard Leo; Taneja, Nawal K. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1975], 1975)
    The impact of high inflation rates on the demand for domestic air passenger transportation is tested in a demand model using time-series data and linear and non-linear least squares regressions with Revenue Passenger Miles ...
  • Mette, Matthias (Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1995, 1995)
    Videoconferencing is widely seen as the form of modern telecommunications having the largest potential to impact the growth of business air travel demand. Most existing studies focus on the substitutional effect of enhanced ...
  • Ausrotas, Raymond A.; Simpson, R. W. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1991], 1991)
    Introduction: Air passenger traffic in the United States showed remarkable growth during the economic expansion of the 1980's. Each day a million and a quarter passengers board commercial flights. The boom coincided with ...
  • Charania Aamer ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    The decision to buy a fare that is higher than the desired fare, under the situation when the desired fare is not available, is known as sell-up. Passengers' willingness to sellup can have considerable impact on airline ...
  • Karlsson Joakim (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1990], 1990)
    Today, the Air Traffic Control (ATC) system relies primarily on verbal communication between the air traffic controllers and the pilots of the aircraft in the controlled airspace. Although a computer system exists that ...
  • Lajoie, Ronnie M. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics & Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, c1987, c1987)
    The problems of the integration of engineering models in computer-aided preliminary design are reviewed. This paper details the research, development, and testing of modifications to Paper Airplane, a LISP-based computer ...
  • Hansman, Robert John (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Technology Laboratory, 1982, 1982)
    In this work the physics of advanced microwave anti-icing systems, which pre-heat impinging supercooled water droplets prior to impact, is studied by means of a computer simulation and is found to be feasible. In order to ...
  • Deckwitz, Thomas Anthony (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1984, 1984)
    Introducing recent advances in computer technology to improve aircraft scheduling is investigated. Incorporating interactive graphics, modern database manipulation techniques, and decision support algorithms, the computer ...
  • Van Cotthem, Jan ([Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Department of Aeronautics & Astronautics], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    A decision support system is introduced that automates dynamic aircraft scheduling and fleet routing. Interactive graphics-based schedule construction and modification tools automate the dynamic scheduling of aircraft of ...
  • Mahoney, John H. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1980], 1980)
    Someone who told me he was a friend asked me to talk to you about "any single important aspect of air cargo" and the booby trap I suddenly stumbled into was the difficulty of sticking to a single subject from the many ...
  • Odoni, Amedeo R. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1985], 1985)
    Introduction: 1.1 BACKGROUND AND MOTIVATION Very few issues relating to the international air transportation industry are today as divisive as those pertaining to user charges imposed at international airports and enroute ...
  • Pogue, L. Welch (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1979, 1979)
    International air transport, like many 20th Century marvels which are taken so much for granted today, broke out from its cocoon, so to speak, shortly after the end of World War II (WW II), took wing, and soared. Theretofore, ...
  • Lee Alex Yen Hung ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    The Passenger Origin / Destination Simulator (PODS) was used to investigate the competitive impacts of Origin-Destination control airline Revenue Management (RM) methods. Experiments performed included revenue performance ...
