  • Mann Robert Wellesley (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1976], 1976)
    A short-haul helicopter service demand analysis on journey to work trips between Nassau and Suffolk counties and the New York central business district was performed over several operational policy/scenario combinations. ...
  • Dogan, Norry ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology], Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    Introduction: The goal of this thesis is to test the flyability of a display system that uses a King Radio KEAO-346 altimeter and Micrologic ML-3000 LORAN-C receiver for final approach guidance and to model the dynamics ...
  • Appel Peter H. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1987], 1987)
    A generalized environment which facilities the development of various types of schedules has been developed. This environment includes an extensive user interface in which a graphics terminal and a mouse is used to display ...
  • Hwoschinsky, Peter V. ([Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology [Flight Transportation Laboratory, 1975], 1975)
    A seventy hour flight test program was accomplished to determine the suitability and accuracy of a low cost Omega navigation receiver in a general aviation aircraft. An analysis was made of signal availability in two widely ...
  • Ryan, Justin Mark; Hansman, Robert John. (Cambridge, Mass. : MIT, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1986], 1986)
    A number of signal processing algorithms were developed for analyzing ultrasonic signals used to measure aircraft ice accretion in flight. A high speed digital signal acquisition system was designed and constructed to ...
  • Zickus, Jeffrey S. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1998], 1998)
    Airline revenue management entails protecting enough seats for late-booking, high-fare passengers while still selling seats which would have otherwise gone empty at discounted fares to earlier-booking customers. In the ...
  • Lewis, Dale B. (Cambridge, MA : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1994], 1994)
    Value density is often considered when considering the choice whether to ship cargo by air or by water. However, although cargo value is directly linked to the overall cost of shipment, it is the deciding factor in mode ...
  • Wischmeyer, Carl Edward (Cambridge, Mass. : Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1976, 1976)
    Introduction: Omega navigation has great potential as a navigation sensor for general aviation aircraft. Advantages of Omega navigation include signal availability at all altitudes, and no need for overflying of various ...
  • MacDonald, Bruce A. (Cambridge, Mass. : Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Flight Transportation Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1986, 1986)
    A generalized model of the domestic en route air traffic control system is constructed, which can be used to predict the rate at which controllers will need to intervene in the flow of radar-controlled traffic to prevent ...
  • Munds, Allan J. (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1969], 1969)
    Synopsis: The ground access problem at United States airports will be discussed in general terms. Those characteristics of airport users relative to ground transportation will be analyzed to provide a clear picture of the ...
  • Durocher, Cort Louis (Cambridge, Mass. : Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Flight Transportation Laboratory, [1977], 1977)
    Introduction: The purpose of Air Traffic Control is to ensure separation of aircraft in the most efficient manner possible. The need for efficiency is becoming more important as air traffic continues to increase at a high ...
  • Allen Edward; Simpson, R. W. ([Cambridge M.I.T. Flight Transportation Laboratory] 1970, 1970)
  • Allen Edward; Simpson, R. W. (Cambridge, Mass. : Flight Transportation Laboratory, Dept. of Aeronautics and Astronautics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, [1970], 1970)
    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 ...
